  1. 1. Plastics Group E(Sasank,Justin, Chia Wei,Jia Tong)
  2. 2. Questions 1.Plastics are classified according to the Plactic Identification Code. What are the types of plastic represented by different codes? Plastic #1: Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET or PETE) Plastic #2: High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Plastic #3: Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Plastic #4: Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) Plastic #5: Polypropylene (PP) Plastic #6: Polystyrene (PS) Plastic #7: Other (O)
  3. 3. 2.What characteristics of plastic make them popular? -Resistant to corrosion and chemicals -Low electrical and thermal conductivity -Durable -Resistant to water and have low toxicity. -Resistant to shock
  4. 4. 3.What environmental problems are caused by the prevalent use of plastics? -Hazardous to wildlife(Choking hazard) -Marine Pollution -Depletion of ozone layer
  5. 5. 4. How does technology help solve these environmental problems? -Technology for recycling plastic is available. However, the market for recycling certain plastics is very small and is shrinking.
  6. 6. 01-PET Polyethylene terephthalate also known as PET or PETE. Application:The vast majority of Disposable soda and Water bottles. Properties: -Unreinforced -Semi-crystalline thermo-plastic polyester -Excellent wear resistance -Low coefficient of friction -Superior dimensional stabilty -
  7. 7. 02-PE-HD High-density polyethylene or PE-HD. Application:Milk jugs, Detergent bottles, Juice bottles, Butter tubs, and Toiletries bottles. Properties: -Strong -Resistant to chemicals and moisture -Permeable to gas -Ease of processing and forming -Stiff -Tough
  8. 8. 03-PVC ● It is a polymer made by catalytic polymerization of vinyl cloride. ● Properties:strong, difficult to burn, strong acid and bases resistance comparing to other chemical and organic slovents. ● Common Application:Plastic pipes, outdoor feature, shrink wrap, water bottle, salad dressing,
  9. 9. 04-PE-LD A.K.A Polyethylene low-density ● It is made from monomer ethylene. ● Properties: relatively low tensile strength at yield and surface hardness, high viscosity, soft to rigid, sensitive to tension cracks, water repellent Application: Dry cleaning bags, produce bags, trash can liners, food storage containers.
  10. 10. 05-PP Polypropylene or polypropene. Properties: -Bad conductor -Translucent -Hard -Stiff -Resistant to many chemicals Application: Trays, pails, bottles and funnel.
  11. 11. 06-PS Polystyrene or more commonly known as Styrofoam. Properties: -Electrical insulator -Small -Lightweight -Shock absorbing -Bad conductor of heat -Hard -Stiff Applications: trays, containers, disposable eating utensils, foamed cups, plates, and bowls.
  12. 12. 07-O ● (Other) is the category which covers all the other plastic materials other than the 6 listed. Or the other things that are made with plastic resin, or has multiple types of plastic resins in it(MIX) For example: BPA, polycarbonate ● The properties depends on the resin or the combination of resins used in the plastic ● It can be applied in bottles
