How to shredder Memory foam ?
we are looking for a shredder who could cut “memory foam” into chips / stick but not flakes. Flakes are bad, because they jam and it is difficult to de-jam them.
The chips / sticks should have a size of 1x1cm and max 4 or 5 cm long – shorter is no problem. See attached picture.
We have tons of this material and would like to re-use it.
Has somebody an idea ?
To make chips/sticks out of recycled plastic, you’ll need to use the extruder along with a rotating blade.
However, if i’m not mistaken, memory foam is made from PU, which is thermosetting, so you will need rebonding and around 30% virgin materials(chemicals) to re-use them. As far as i know, recycled foam is used as filler in other products.Toggle replies
