Types of plastic
An overview of the different types of plastic, these are the most common ones. We mostly work with PP, HDPE, LDPE and PS. Just because we gather that the most from our waste here. However they should al work with our machines, just requires some (temperature) testing.
Thermoplasts can be recycled (by heat the material gets softened) (bins, bottles, bags, bottle caps, plastic cuttelry etc.)
Thermosets can not be recycled the Precious Plastic way (by heat it degrades and burns) (epoxy, urethane polyester etc.)
However most toys and kitchenware are thermoplastic so possible to recycle.
