PP is the third most extensively manufactured commodity plastic (after PE). It has a wider variety of characteristics and is more heat resistant than PE. PP is available in a variety of characteristics that allow it to be utilized for goods requiring strong impact and long-term dimensional stability, as well as having a high chemical resistance
PE is one of the most commonly used polymers in the world. Polyethylenes have excellent chemical and impact resistance, as well as electrical characteristics and a low coefficient of friction. Branched types are referred to as low-density polyethylene (LDPE) or linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE); linear types are referred to as high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) (UHMWPE).
PET is the most recyclable material in the world, with remarkable clarity and chemical resistance. The material is suitable for use in a variety of techniques, including injection molding, blow molding, injection blow molding and injection stretch blow molding.
Greater clarity over cleared PP and have good physical characteristics for a wide range of container types. These are amorphous copolymer thermoplastics with higher chemical resistance when compared to other materials such as ABS or PMMA. .
POLY METHYL METHACRYLATE
PMMA, acrylic, is a transparent thermoplastic that is widely used as a substitute for glass. PMMA is sometimes known as plastic glass. GlassPolymer.
AS/SAN, ABS’s descendent, has an excellent mix of rigidity, strength, toughness, and transparency.
ACRYLONITRILE BUTADIENE STYRENE
ABS plastic is recyclable and has high impact, heat, and acid chemical resistance. ABS is a material with excellent impact resistance, and outstanding moldability owing to its three primary components
Post Consumer Recycled
Is the raw material made from waste from the consumer/end user. Due to increasing interest in the use of recycled material in packaging.
Recyclable plastics is the material that can be reused for manufacturing another product after disposal.
We talk about recycled plastics manufactured using raw material reused in its whole or at a particular percentage. The most standardized use of these new products is forming recycled packaging, but also for energy assessment or conversion to new products by chemical recycling. Mechanical recycling consists of a physical process in which plastic is recycled for it’s re-use once used in industrial processes.
BIODEGRADABLE | BIOPLASTICS
Biodegradable or bioplastic is those made of fossil or natural raw materials derived from cellulose, lactic acid, polysaccharides, oils… These can be broken down by organisms (bacterias, fungi, alga …) into a suitable environment (temperature conditions, moisture, light, oxygen, etc)
This sustainable solution is almost the same a bioplastic, except with the particularity that in addition, raw materials come from renewable sources (non-fossil raw material).
It is an organic material that has the property of becoming compost during the composting process. Compost is the end result of the biodegradation process of these organic materials which is obtained industrially. Organic materials ( usually waste) are made of compost via disintegration and aerobic biodegradation (when oxygen is present).
