Recyclable Plastic Material

Products which are made with plastic can be found everywhere in our daily life, the features of plastic including light-weight and low cost make it indivisible part of our life in this era, but meanwhile, it results in the over-utilization of plastic which causes serious environmental problem in these decades. 


Identification Code

Thus "Society for the Plastic Industry" promoted the importance of recycling plastic products and developed a set of recycling guideline, each product with Resin Identification Code on it can be recycled.
Recyclable plastic material can be grouped into seven categories, the is based on the feature of material, heat resistance, etc. 


Resin Identification CodeMaterialFeatureHeat-Resistance Temperature(℃)Usage
Ji-Horng PlasticPolyethylene Terephthalate(PET, PETE)High hardness and toughness, lightweight, involatile, acid and alkali resistance60~85plastic bottles, juice and drink bottles, oil buckle, etc.
