Plastics - Recycled plastics - Characterization of Polyethylene (PE) recyclates

This document defines a method of specifying delivery conditions for polyethylene (PE) recyclates.
It gives the most important characteristics and associated test methods for assessing PE recyclates intended for use in the production of semi-finished/finished products.
It is intended to support parties involved in the use of polyethylene (PE) recyclates obtained by mechanical recycling to agree on specifications for specific and generic applications.
This document is applicable without prejudice to any existing legislation.
This document does not cover the characterization of plastics wastes (see EN 15347).
