Twenty years after the privatization, the company has broadened its product range so that at present it does not have any problem to compete successfully on the market. Production and sales are divided into six divisions most of which are located in Svitavy – only one division is situated in Chropyně.

Our Stories

Recycling in Svitap



The phenomenon of recycling is still one of the fundamental topics, especially in context of industrial production. Successful recycling should be a mutual goal of both ecologists – because it saves natural resources and environment in general and also producers themselves – because recycling significantly reduce production costs.

Svitap has been involved in the recycling of thermoplastic waste for a long period of time. We have our own production line for recycling, which is a part od Division I. Thanks to that we are able to process our waste (drawn and non-drawn foils, tapes, leftovers from woven and non-woven textiles). But Svitap mainly does the recycling for customers, so we offer processing of these types of plasics: LDPE, HDPE, PP, PC, ABS and PS. Plastic waste passes through the process of grinding into small pieces, which are then heated up to a plastification temperature (170 degrees Celsius or more, depending on the material). The pure mass of the material is then chopped, cooled down and dried. The resulting product is the so-called regranulate - polymer granules of uniform size and of required purity, free of moisture and with a minimum change of fluidity.

 

The regranulate is extraordinary because it still carries about 75% quality of the original raw material and is easily processed. That is why it is capable of reducing the production costs, usually up to 40%. There is also no problem for us to color the regranulate according to customer’s order. Many items we need almost every day are made of our regranulate (plastic bags, containers, foils etc.).

 

Nowadays, the possible expansion of our recycling capacities is considered. This process would depend on investing in a giant industrial washing machine. The washing machine is constructed to clean plastic waste as much as possible. The machine cleans the detergent bottles to the extent that they can be recycled without problems. Detergent bottles are usually made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE). By purchasing the machine, Svitap will become one of few companies that recycles this type of material, which would bring competitive advantage and new business partners.
