Orange Plastics Academy

As a partner in injection molding, we can well imagine that if you are planning to have a plastic product made, you first like to know how things work. This often raises many questions.

  • What does such a injection molding process look like?
  • What options do I have for my product?
  • What possibilities are there for recycling?

Of course, there is a lot of information to be found on the internet. But finding correct, understandable and reliable information is often a challenge.

We think this could be easier.
Moreover, more fun!

What is the best way to recycle plastic?

Downgrading of plastics can be prevented by horizontal recycling. This means that plastic products can be used as new again! Orange Plastics has joined forces with R2S for this purpose. Watch the video here and see how we do it together!
