Bulk Material Characteristics

Plastic and Rubber bulk materials may be dry or oily, flowing freely or not; powder or particles. They include

  • Abrasiveness

Materials are usually not smooth and contain particles that can cause damage by When you grind or rub against another thing.

  • Hazardous

Materials are generally dangerous and must be handled with care.

  • Dustiness

Depending on their form, materials tend to cause particles to become exposed to the air as a result of the stimulus.

  • They possess disparate particle sizes.
  • They possess materials that cake, pack, or smear
  • Density

These ingredients are usually very dense, closely packed together.

Common Bulk Materials Handled

In this industry, common bulk materials that are used include:

  • Antimony (III) oxide

Antimony (III) oxide is an opacifying agent for glasses, ceramics, and enamels. Some specialty pigments contain antimony. Antimony (III) oxide is a valuable catalyst in producing polyethylene terephthalate (PET plastic) and the vulcanization of rubber.

  • Carbon Black

Carbon Black, otherwise known as thermal black, lamp black, or acetylene black, is a product of a partial combustion of heavy-weight petroleum products that include ethylene cracking tar, FCC tar, and coal tar. Carbon black is associated with paracrystalline carbon that has an increased surface-area-to-volume ratio, but short of an activated carbon.

Uses
  • It can be used as a model tool for soot in experiments involving diesel oxidation.
  • It is also used as a strengthening agent in rubber products.

It is used to produce different colours of paints, inks and plastics. Carbon is toxic and may cause when you come in direct contact with it.

BPA

BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles.
Other popular materials include plastic flakes, plastic pellets, rubber, resins, silica sand, starch, pearl, pigments, iron oxide, etc.
