Using The Right Packaging 

Depending on your packaging requirement, you have a wide range of materials to choose from. To get it right at the first time not only save your time and money, it also help to keep your customers and end-users happy, satisfied and loyal. The following is a list of recycling symbols that you may come across. Understanding these recycling symbols will help you to choose the packaging item better :


Type 1 Plastic - PETE or PET

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PETE) or Poly Ethylene Terephthalate (PET), is often used in soft drink bottles, as well as food and non-food containers, because of their good gas and moisture barrier properties. It is also commonly found in textiles, which explains why a bottle can be turned into fleece.  

PET and PETE plastic can be recycled into carpet yarns, fiberfill, tote bags, food and drink containers, luggage and clothing.


Type 2 Plastic - HDPE or PE-HD

High-density Polyethylene (HDPE) is often used to make grocery and retain bags, as well as bottles for beverages with short shelf life, such as milk and juice. Due to good chemical resistance in HDPE, it is also often used for containing household and industrial chemicals such as detergents and bleach. 

HDPE plastic can be recycled into bottles for holding household chemicals such as shampoo, conditioner and even motor oil. Recycled HDPE plastic can also be made into pipes, buckets and bins, pens, flower pots, film and sheets, benches, and even dog houses.


Type 3 Plastic - PVC

Polyvinyl Chloride or Vinyl (PVC) offers two types of PVC plastic. Rigid PVC are made into bottles and packaging sheet, as well as pipes and fittings, carpet backing and windows in the construction market. Given its stable electrical properties, flexible PVC are used in wire and cable insulation. Given its excellent chemical resistance, flexible PVC are also made into blood bags and medical tubing.

Recycled PVC can be made into packaging, mud flaps, film and sheet, floor tiles and mats, resilient flooring, trays, electrical boxes, cables, traffic cones, garden hose.


Type 4 Plastic - LDPE or PE-LD

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is often used extensively in manufacturing breadbags, tote bags, dry cleaning bags, furniture, carpets, and squeezable bottles due to its toughness, flexibility and relative transparency. It is also used in cable insulation, flexible bottles, as well as film applications. 

Recycled LDPE plastic can be made into garbage can liners, floor tile, film and sheet, bins, landscape, timber and lumber.


Type 5 Plastic - PP

Polypropylene (PP) is used extensively for packaging purposes. Given its high melting point and good chemical resistance, it is used to contain hot-fill liquids, and molded in automotive parts.

Recycled PP plastic can be made into brooms, rakes, brushes, signal lights, ice scrapers, and trays.


Type 6 Plastic - PS

Polystyrene (PS) has a clear and hard properties, is often used in protective packaging, such as CD covers or cases. It can also be made into Styrofoam, which are in turn made into disposable plates and cups for take-away.

Recycled PS can be used in manufacturing rulers, license plate frames, foam packaging, foam utensils, plate and cups, vents, switch boards, and thermal insulation items.


Type 7 Plastic - Others

This plastic recycling code indicates that the type of plastic in question is made of a resin other than the six listed above, or is made of more than one resin listed above.
