Resin Identification Codes -Plastics recycling Codes.



Packaging Applications
Recycled Products
Polyethylene Terephethalate (PET, PETE). PET is clear,   tough, and Commonly used in soft drink bottles and consumer product containers.Applications include strapping and both food and non-food containers. Cleaned, recycled PET flakes and pellets are in great demand for   spinning fibre for carpet yarns, producing fibrefill and geo-textiles. 
Clarity, strength, toughness, barrier to gas and moisture, resistance to heat 
Plastics, water, sports drink, beer, mouthwash, catsup & salad dressing. Peanut butter, pickle, jelly & jam jars. Oven able film &   oven able prepared food trays. 
Fibre, tote bags, clothing, film and sheet, food and beverage containers, carpet, strapping, fleece wear, luggage and bottles. 
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). HDPE is to make bottles for milk,   juice,  and laundry products.   Undigested bottles are translucent, have good barrier properties and   stiffness, and are well suited to packaging products with a short shelf life.   HDPE has good chemical resistance; it is used for packaging household and   industrial chemicals as detergents and bleach. 
Stiffness, strength, toughness, resistance to chemicals and moisture, permeability to gas, ease of processing, and ease of forming. 
Milk, water, juice, cosmetic, shampoo, dish and laundry detergent   bottles; yoghurt and margarine tubs; cereal box liners; grocery, trash and   retail bags. 
Liquid laundry detergent, shampoo,    motor oil bottles; pipe, buckets, crates, flower pots, garden edging,   film,Sheet, recycling bins, benches, dog houses,  floor tiles, picnic tables, fencing. 
Vinyl (Polyvinyl Chloride or PVC):  PVC diverse slate can be   broadly divided into widely used in the construction market for such applications as pipes and fittings, siding, carpet backing and windows.   Flexible vinyl is used in wire and cable insulation, film & sheet, floor   coverings synthetic leather products, coatings, blood bags, medical tubing   & other applications. 
Versatility, clarity, ease of blending, strength, toughness,   resistance to grease, oil and chemicals. 
Clear food and non-food packaging, medical tubing, wire and cable insulation, film and sheet, construction products such as pipes, fittings, residing, floor tiles, carpet backing and window frames. 
Loose-leaf binders, decking, panelling, gutters, mud flaps, film,   sheet, floor tiles, mats, resilient flooring, cassette trays, electrical boxes, cables, traffic cones, garden hose, mobile home skirting. 
Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE).Used predominately in film applications due to its toughness, flexibility and transparency, making it popular for use in applications where heat sealing is necessary. LDPE is also used to manufacture some flexible lids and bottles and it is used in wire and cable applications 
Ease of processing, strength, toughness, flexibility, ease of sealing, barrier to moisture. 
Dry cleaning, bread and frozen food bags, squeezable bottles, e.g.   honey, mustard. 
Shipping envelopes, garbage can liners, floor tile, furniture, film   and sheet, compost bins, panelling, trash cans, landscape timber, lumber 
Polypropylene (PP). Polypropylene has good chemical   resistance, is strong, and has a high melting point making it good for hot-fill   liquids. PP is found in flexible and rigid packaging to fibres and large   moulded parts for automotive and consumer products. 
Strength, toughness, resistance to heat, chemicals, grease and oil, versatile, barrier to moisture. 
Catsup bottles, yoghurt containers and margarine tubs, medicine   bottles 
Automobile battery cases, signal lights, battery cables, brooms,   brushes, ice scrapers, oil funnels, bicycle racks, rakes, bins, pallets,   sheeting, trays. 
Polystyrene (PS). Polystyrene is a versatile plastic   that can be rigid or foamed. General purpose polystyrene is clear, hard and   brittle. It has a relatively low melting point. Typical applications include   protective packaging, containers, lids, cups, bottles and trays. 
Versatility, insulation, clarity, easily formed 
Compact disc jackets, food service applications, grocery store meat trays, egg cartons, aspirin bottles, cups, plates, cutlery. 
Thermometers, light switch plates, thermal insulation, egg cartons,   vents, desk trays, rulers, license plate frames, foam packing, foam plates,   cups, utensils 
Other. Use of this code indicates that the package in question is made   with a resin other than the six listed above, or is made of more than one   resin listed above, and used in a multi-layer combination. 
Dependent on resin or combination of resins 
Three and five gallon reusable water bottles, some citrus juice and   catsup bottles. 
Bottles, plastic lumber applications.
