Introducing types of granules and their application in industry

What is a granule?

Granules are one of the important components of plastic and textile industries, which are produced in the form of colorful, uniform and small grains. These materials are usually used as a raw material in the production of plastic and textile products.

Types of granules

Granules based on the type of polymer include the following:

  • Virgin polyethylene (PE) granules: including different types of polyethylene such as high density polyethylene (HDPE), medium density polyethylene (MDPE) and low density polyethylene (LDPE) which are used in non-textile industries such as Geomembranes which has various uses that are comprehensive in the article 9 applications of geomembranes in industries You can study.

  • Granule Virgin Polyamide (PA) is used in various industries due to its high resistance to corrosion, wear and heat. Its applications include the production of fishing line, rope and high strength strings, resistant bags and industrial parts such as ribs and briquettes. Also, it is used in the clothing industry to produce clothes and products that require resistance and flexibility.

  • Virgin polypropylene (PP) granules are used in various industries due to their high strength resistance and characteristics. In packaging, it is used to make boxes, bottles, and plastic containers. In the automotive industry, it is used to produce car interior parts such as interior panels and seats, because it has properties such as lightness and impact resistance. Also, it is used in the production of household products such as storage containers and kitchen appliances due to its resistance and stability against shock and environmental conditions. In general, this granule is used as a polymer with diverse and suitable features in the packaging, automotive and home appliance industries.

  • Granular Virgin Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is used in various industries due to its properties such as resistance to corrosion, abrasion, and waterproofing. Applications of this granule include the production of plastic pipes for construction, irrigation, and sewage, embossed coatings for metallic and non-metallic parts, and electrical shields such as electrical wires and cables. In general, PVC is used as a polymer with suitable properties to withstand various environmental conditions, in various industries, including the production of plastic pipes, embossed coatings, and electrical shields.

  • Granular Virgin Polystyrene (PS) is used in various industries due to its transparency, lightness, and easy processing capability. The applications of this granule include the production of decorative items, packaging, and household appliances. In general, PS is used as a polymer with suitable properties for the production of decorative products, packaging, and household appliances in various industries.

  • Granule virgin polyethylene terephthalate textile grade (PET-TG) is used in carpet, yarn and woven fabric industries using the POY production method.

  • Bottle Grade Virgin Polyethylene Terephthalate Granule (PET-BG) is mainly used in beverage bottle production industries such as mineral water and soft drinks due to its quality and hygiene.

  • Recycled Polyethylene Granule (PE) Polyethylene granule also has a lenticular shape and is one of the most widely used polymers in the world. This type of granule is used in the production of products such as bags, plastic spoons, milk bottles, etc.

  • Recycled Polypropylene Granule (PP) Recycled polypropylene granule has a lenticular shape and is used to produce a variety of polymer products. This type of granule is used in various industries such as the automotive industry, component manufacturing, plastic injection, etc.

Recycled granules are generally produced with polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE).
