What is the best plastic material, what we want to say here is the most suitable for food... The ethylene terephthalate resin is transparent before it is dried, and it is milky white after drying. The density is 1.30~1,38g/cm3, the water absorption is low (about 0.13%), the molding shrinkage rate is large (about 0.7%~1%), the ignition point is high (the ignition point is 480°C); PET products are the most in plastic products. It is tough, and has good physical and mechanical properties in a wide temperature range. It can be applied at 120 °C for a long time; it has good electrical insulation and weather resistance; crystalline PET is opaque, amorphous PET is transparent. PET can be hydrolyzed by strong acid, strong alkali or water vapor. It has good chemical stability to organic solvents and oils (such as methyl ethyl ketone, xylene, ethylene glycol, acetic acid, methanol, edible oil, etc.), wine, detergents, etc. It can be dissolved in a mixture of tetrachloroethane, cresol, o-chlorophenol and an excess of nitrobenzene.


Common types of plastics:

Pvc: Polyvinyl chloride, plastic products manufacturers commonly use it to manufacture heat shrinkable film, anti-static trays, pipes, trunking, doors and windows, fireproof materials, etc., because of its strong hardness, chemical stability, and good flame retardancy. However, if pvc is heated, it will release toxic substances, so try not to buy pvc packaging of hot food, such as cling film and heat shrinkable film.

Ps: The scientific name is polystyrene. It has high transparency, is very hard, is similar to glass, and can withstand high temperatures. It is often used for the processing of plastic parts with high hardness and high transparency, as well as fireproof and heat insulation materials. This material will not be used in food because it is toxic.

Pet: The scientific name is polyethylene terephthalate. It is a food-grade, safe and non-toxic material. It is commonly used in various food and beverage packaging. It has high transparency, good plasticity, strong hardness, fashionable and beautiful characteristics, and general food packaging. Bottles and drums are made of pet because of its excellent performance.
