PolyMax Plastics Analyzer

The new PolyMax analyzer provides confident ID of light and black plastics.

CONFIDENCE IN PLASTICS IDENTIFICATION

PolyMax Plastics Analyzer changes the game in plastics recycling and identification, using laser-based technology to validate the chemistry of both light and dark recycled plastic compounds — based on science, not best guesses — so you can purchase and sell with greater confidence.

Traditional burn-n-sniff methods may be cheap, but the nose only knows so much. Can you really trust your bottom line and the livelihood of your business to a whiff of smoke? Take the guesswork out of plastics identification and choose the PolyMax Laser Plastics Analyzer. Now you can measure plastic materials with irrefutable accuracy at every stage of the plastics recycling process.

BLACK PLASTICS? BRING IT ON

Don't let misidentified loads put a dent in your profits. Now you can rapidly identify a wider variety of plastics, including light and dark varieties, a capability long sought out in the industry, with accuracy and speed.

Moreover, the PolyMax analyzer is able to determine all major families and subfamilies of plastics: Polyethylene (PE), Polystyrene (PS), Nylon, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polycarbonate (PC) and Polypropylene(PP); and can even distinguish plastics that are very similar, including: HDPE vs. LDPE, Nylon 6 vs. Nylon 6.6, and ABS vs. SAN.

Finally, this robust handheld instrument can even reliably identify plastic in nearly any form, whether it be in rolls, bales, flakes, sheets, pellets, carpets, scraps, bottles, pallets and or purge.

SO EASY, ANYONE CAN USE IT

Put laboratory-grade chemistry analysis in the hand of any team member. Point-and-shoot usability and a rugged design provide your crew consistent and accurate readings no matter who’s using the device.

Rest assured that the instrument is built for durability with solid-state components, sapphire glass and a shock- and water-resistant frame, to ensure reliable operation in rough-and-tumble settings.
