    Politethylen

    Polyethylene is the most widely used plastic and usually comes in the form of granules. By melting the granules, they can be converted into various end applications such as plastic bottles, plastic bags, packaging film, sheathing of electric cables, water and gas pipes, and technical fibers.

    Polyethylene is made by polymerization of ethylene and can easily be recycled. Ethylene is obtained by breaking (cracking) products including naphtha, a derivative of light oil. It is estimated that 1.2% of the extracted oil is used to produce polyethylene. It contains only carbon (carbonium) and hydrogen (Hydrogenium) atoms.

    Polypropylene

    Polypropylene is an easy to recycle thermoplastic that is used in an extremely wide variety of applications, including Australian banknotes. The use of thermoplastics has great advantages because the softened material can easily be placed into the correct shape and can also easily be reused. Polypropylene is resistant to chemical solvents and acids. It is also resistant to bacteria and is therefore suitable for disposable syringes and other medical equipment.

    Polypropylene is similar to polyethylene. It is just as cheap, only much stronger. It is used for plastic bottles, carpets, plastic furniture, and many car parts. Other uses include pipes, filter material and plastic products that require a higher quality than its predecessor polyethylene can offer.

    In addition, polypropylene film can also be cut into fibers to make rope. The most common type is a three strand twisted line. It is a good substitute for natural ropes, because it has a natural color, it is fibrous and stiff and also floats on water. Therefore, it is often used for boats in order to prevent the ropes from getting caught in the propeller of the boat. Furthermore, polypropylene ropes are also cheap and extremely durable.

  • Polystyrene
    Polystyren

    Polystyrene is a synthetic aromatic polymer made from the monomer styrene and comes in a solid or foamed form. General-purpose polystyrene is clear, hard and rather brittle. It is an inexpensive resin per unit weight, is a rather poor barrier to oxygen and water vapor and has a relatively low melting point. Polystyrene is one of the most widely used plastics, the scale of its production being several billion kilograms per year. Polystyrene can be naturally transparent, but can be colored with colorants. Uses include protective packaging (such as packing peanuts or CD and DVD cases), containers (such as "clamshells"), lids, bottles, trays, tumblers and disposable cutlery.

    PVC

    Polyvinyl chloride, also known as PVC, is the third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer, after polyethylene and polypropylene. PVC comes in two basic forms: rigid (sometimes abbreviated as RPVC) and flexible. The rigid form of PVC is used in the construction of pipes and profile applications such as doors and windows. It is also used for bottles, other non-food packaging and cards (such as bank or membership cards). It can be made softer and more flexible by adding plasticizers, the most widely used being phthalates. In this form, it is also used in plumbing, electrical cable insulation, imitation leather, signage, inflatable products and many applications where it replaces rubber.
