What is PCR plastic?

Detailed analysis of PCR materials

The pollution problem of ordinary plastics is becoming more and more serious.  The protection of the sustainable development of the ecological environment has become the consensus of people in daily life. The recycling of packaging materials is currently one of the important ways to solve such problems.

As a company with a sense of social responsibility, our factory can now use PCR(Post-Consumer Recycled) plastic to produce bottles. Let’s show everyone what pcr materials are.


1. What is  PCR material?

PCR is Post-Consumer Recycled in English, which generally refers to the recycling of plastic after use. The recycled plastic particles are mixed with the original resin to produce a variety of new plastic products.


2. PCR material production process
The production of PCR materials includes processes such as manual roughing-automatic machine sorting-washing-modified granulation.

1). Manual rough selection is mainly used to manually distinguish used plastic products according to different colors and different materials.
2). Automatic machine sorting is to use near-infrared automatic sorting production line, large electrostatic sorting production line, color sorter and other equipment to further classify materials according to color and material.
3). Cleaning is to remove the stains, electroplating layer, oil spray layer, etc. on the surface of the material through water washing and rapid friction.
4). After the above process, raw materials with a single material and basically the same color are obtained;

After the raw materials are divided into batches, the performance of each batch is tested for use. Then according to the customer’s requirements for product performance and color, the raw materials are modified and color-matched and granulated.

3. The impact of PCR on the environment
PCR materials can help the country’s carbon neutrality, promote the recycling of resources, turn waste into treasure, greatly reduce the waste of resources. It also means that fewer waste plastics are buried, incinerated and exist in the natural environment, reducing environmental pollution.








4. Tips for use
After a lot of experimental data, our factory suggests that customers should consider the percentage of PCR when choosing PCR material bottles.
1)Transparent bottles should use no more than 30% PCR.
2)Seml-Translucent bottles should use no more than 50% PCR.
3)Solid color bottles do not exceed 100% PCR.
