Plastic bottles are made from various resins, such as:
PVC bottles are used to hold cooking oils at room temperature, vinegar, cosmetic products such as moisturizers, shampoos, and similar products. It is useful to store products in freezers as it allows expansion and contraction without cracking.
PET Plastic bottles are used to hold water, carbonated beverages, medicines, milk, and similar products.
K-resin SBC plastic bottles are commonly used in attractive display and point of purchase packaging of products. They are not suitable for long term packaging of certain aqueous products. K-resin is a derivative of styrene.
HPDE plastic bottles are available in food grade (FDA compliant) quality. They are used widely to store food products (especially perishable), body products, medicinal supplements, tablets, household cleaning fluids, and similar products. HPDE is the most economical and commonly used resin in the manufacture of plastic bottles.
HPDE plastic bottles are treated with fluorine gas to increase its barrier towards hydrocarbon and aromatic solvents.
They are ideal for storing insecticides, pesticides, and herbicides; photographic, electronic, and agricultural chemicals; household, medical and industrial cleaners and solvents; citrus products; cosmetics; flavoring agents; fuels; surfactants; construction, painting and paneling polishes and products; graffiti cleaning products; and similar products.
Low density polyethylene (LDPE):
LPDE plastic bottles are ideal for squeezing applications, as they are quite flexible. They are used in dropper bottles, squeeze bottles for cosmetics and medicines, wash bottles, carboys, and similar products. The chemical composition of LDPE is similar to HPDE, but their properties differ somewhat.
Polystyrene plastic bottles are inexpensive and are more commonly used to store semi-dry materials such as tablets, spices, petroleum jellies, sterilized filtrates, and similar products.
PCR plastic bottles are cheap and can be processed easily in various recycled content percentages. The 100% PCR bottles are used to store household cleaning liquids. Improved processing methods have produced 100% PCR bottles suitable for storing liquor. PCR is produced by recycling mostly milk and water HPDE containers and virgin resin.
To help consumers recycle plastic bottles, the bottles are marked underneath with a triangular symbol of three "chasing" arrows around a number corresponding to the type of plastic.
Plastic should be recycled to reduce its effect as a pollutant to the earth's environment. Consumers and distributors should be educated about recycling plastic bottles.
