Petlon is now working with Gumdrop Limited to develop compounds made from recycled gum
Petlon Polymers has signed a joint development agreement with Gumdrop Limited to develop innovative new compounds made with recycled waste chewing gum.
Petlon, based in Lydney, Gloucestershire, will work with Gumdrop Limited in order to further develop its compounds made from recycled gum in order to produce a material that can be manufactured into a wide range of goods.
“Gumdrop was founded to tackle the global problem of chewing gum waste and we’re the first company in the world to recycle and process chewing gum into a range of new compounds that can be used in the rubber and plastics industry,” explained Gumdrop’s Founder, Anna Bullus.
“This exciting new development utilising Pelton’s extensive Polymer knowledge is designed to take the compounds further up the polymer value chain.”
