Identification of Plastics By Numbers

Dear Readers,
 
During our daily life Plastics are everywhere. Some are Eco-friendly. At the bottom of most plastic containers you can find a small number inside the three arrow triangle recycling symbol and indicates the type of resin used to produce the plastic. The little number inside the triangle tells the real story and gives the information about the recycling which ranges from one to seven Sometimes below the numbers you also find the abbreviations for the plastic type (PETE, HDPE, etc.). The most widely accepted plastics for recycling are number is 1 and 2.
 
 
Code#1-PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) PET is one of the most commonly used plastics in consumer products, and is found in most water and pop bottles, and some packagingProducts made of #1 (PET) plastic should be recycled but not reused.
Code#2-HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) HDPE plastic is the stiff plastic used to make milk jugs, detergent and oil bottles, toys, and some plastic bags. Products made of #2 HDPE are reusable and recyclable.
Code#3 - PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) PVC is a soft, flexible plastic, It is commonly used to make window frames, garden hoses, arbores, raised beds and to make plastic pipes and parts for plumbing. Products made using PVC plastic are not recyclable.
Code#4 - LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene) The plastic grocery bags used in most stores today are made using LDPE plastic. Products made using LDPE plastic are reusable, but not always recyclable.
Code#5 - PP (Polypropylene) Polypropylene plastic is tough and lightweight, and has excellent heat-resistance qualities. PP is considered safe for reuse.
Code#6 - PS (Polystyrene) Polystyrene is  lightweight and easily-formed plastic with a wide variety of uses. It is most often used to make disposable Styrofoam drinking cups, Recycling is not widely available for polystyrene products.
Code#7 - Other (BPA, Polycarbonate and LEXAN) The #7 category was designed as a catch-all for polycarbonate (PC) and “other” plastics, so reuse and recycling protocols are not standardized within this category.
 
Best Quote. Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today. Have a Nice Day.
