Marking of plastic bottles
A plastic bottle is a plastic container for containing, protecting and transporting liquids. Plastic bottles provide great convenience in their production, operation on bottling lines, transportation of the finished product to them, since their weight is up to ten times less than glass bottles, and they do not fight. Plastic bottles are usually used to store liquids such as water, soft drinks, motor oils, vegetable oils, medicines, shampoos, milk, ink, beer, and the like.
Two liters of water a day and a healthy diet are the goals of modern people who are aware of the danger of neglect of their lifestyle.
Processing codes are special marks used to designate the material from which the item is made, and to simplify the sorting procedure before sending it for recycling. Such signs are usually put on batteries, batteries, products made of glass, metal, paper, plastic.
Natural food and pure water ensure that the aging of the body does not become rapid, and the immunity will be able to cope with the most common diseases. Unfortunately, even in such an ideal formula for health there is a catch: it is very important not only how clean the water is, but the products are environmentally friendly. The packaging in which all this is stored is important!
Plastic, from which most food packages and water bottles are made, is often of poor quality. He quietly kills people every day, and we do not even think about the danger.
Plastic packaging is so loved by all manufacturers, because it is cheap. The desire to earn more money on consumers leads many companies, and this is sad.
When a bottle is made of a material capable of interacting with water and releasing harmful toxic substances into it, drinking inside such a container turns into poison.
Plastic can cause cancer. The substances released by the plastic are very toxic - the body is poisoned, the internal organs become clogged with harmful compounds, and these factors inhibit the immune system.
Problems with the liver and pancreas also often arise only because of the use of plastic packaging!
Another nuisance is hormonal disruption caused by carcinogenic compounds. Eating them reluctantly, getting food from unreliable plastic packaging or drinking water from it, you risk losing the correct hormonal balance.
Skin problems, mental disorders, weakness of the body, frequent infectious diseases - satellites of hormonal failure. To avoid these phenomena, treat the packaging carefully: look what you buy!
Types of plastics and their marking
Polyethylene terephthalate. PETE or PET lettering
Cheap, thanks to which it is found almost everywhere. It contains the majority of beverages, vegetable oils, ketchups, spices, cosmetics.
Security. Suitable ONLY for single use. With repeated use phthalates can be released.
High density polyethylene. Lettering marks HDPE or PE HD
Cheap, lightweight, resistant to temperature effects (range from -80 to +110 degrees C). Disposable tableware, food containers, bottles for cosmetics, packaging bags, bags, toys are made from it.
Security. It is considered relatively safe, although formaldehyde can be released from it.
Polyvinyl chloride Lettering marking PVC or V
This is the same PVC from which window profiles are made, furniture, films for stretch ceilings, pipes, tablecloths, curtains, flooring, containers for technical liquids.
Security. Prohibited for food use. It contains bisphenol A, vinyl chloride, phthalates, as well as mercury and / or cadmium. We would like to say that you need to buy expensive window profiles, expensive stretch ceilings, expensive laminate and this will make your life safe, but this will not be true. The high cost of production does not give any guarantees.
Low density polyethylene. Lettering LDPE or PEBD
Cheap and common material from which the majority of packages, garbage bags, CDs, linoleums are made.
Security. Relatively safe for food use, in rare cases it can release formaldehyde. Plastic bags are not as dangerous to human health as they are dangerous to the ecology of the planet.
Polypropylene. PP letter marking
Durable and heat-resistant plastic from which food containers, food packaging, syringes, toys are made.
Security. It is fairly safe, but under certain conditions it can release formaldehyde.
Polystyrene PS lettering
Cheap and easy to manufacture plastic, from which almost all disposable utensils, yogurt cups, trays for meat, fruits and vegetables (they are made of foamed polystyrene, ie expanded polystyrene), food containers, toys, sandwich panels, heat insulating slabs.
Security. Can allocate styrene, so disposable tableware is called disposable.
Polycarbonate, polyamide and other types of plastics. Letter mark O or OTHER
This group includes plastics that do not receive a separate number. Of them are made bottles for children, toys, water bottles, packaging.
Security. They contain Bisphenol A, more precisely, some of them contain, and some plastics from this group, on the contrary, are distinguished by high ecological purity.
