The key to the successful application of metal injection moulding (MIM) process in production practice is the selection of a binder system together with a suitable debinding procedure. There are various binder-system that have been developed for use MIM industries which include the use of major fraction of petroleum-based binder and waxes.

However, there are problems associated in the use of the said binder-systems. To overcome at least some of the problems associated with the other systems, an eco-friendly composite binder based on recycling materials were successfully developed SIRIM Berhad that consist of plastic waste in powder form which was obtained from waste of polyolefin (such as mineral water bottle, plastic container etc)
