Identify The Material Of The Basket Mold

Basket Mould is a common plastic product in our daily life. We cannot do without it when washing vegetables. So what are its materials? How to distinguish it? Let's take a look. PP is a plastic material polypropylene, and 5 is a plastic product recycling label, which is formulated by relevant organizations in the plastics industry in the United States. This set of signs stamps plastic material identification codes on containers or packaging, from No. 1 to No. 7, so that people can simply join the ranks of recycling without having to bother to learn the similarities and differences of various plastic materials.
No. 1: PET (polyethylene terephthalate), a container made of this material is a common plastic bottle for soda, also commonly known as a "poly bottle".
No. 2: HDPE (High Density Polyethylene). Containers for detergents, shampoos, shower gels, edible oils, pesticides, etc. are mostly made of HDPE. The containers are mostly semi-opaque and feel waxy. No. 3: PVC (polyvinyl chloride), mostly used to make water pipes, raincoats, school bags, building materials, plastic films, plastic boxes and other utensils.
No. 4: LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene), plastic bags that can be seen everywhere are mostly made of LDPE. No. 5: PP (polypropylene), mostly used to make buckets, trash cans, baskets, baskets and food containers for microwave ovens.
No. 6: PS (polystyrene), due to its low water absorption, is mostly used to make building materials, toys, stationery, rollers, and cups or disposable tableware for beverages in fast-food stores.
No. 7: Other.
