Regrind is a term used that refers to plastic material that has been recycled or reprocessed and added to the original resin.

Welding parts that contain regrind can be difficult because the regrind may have several different grades of resin mixed together. Although they are all made of the same material these different resin grades flow at different rates. This complicates the welding process.
