PET Plastic Bottle And PP Plastic Bottle Difference
Jul 17, 2018

There are many kinds of plastic bottles, and the functions and characteristics of plastic bottles of different materials are different. Let's compare PET plastic bottles with PP plastic bottles.

Characteristics: PE is soft and has a waxy feel. Compared with the same plastic, it is lighter in weight and has a certain transparency. The flame is blue when burning.

Toxicity: Non-toxic, harmless to the human body.

Commercially available high density polyethylene (HDPE) with a density of 0.945 to 0.96 g/cm 3 and a melting point of 125 to 137 ° C;

Linear low density PE (LLDPE), density 0.925 g / cm 3, melting point 120 ~ 125 ° C;

High pressure low density PE (HP-LDPE), density 0.918 g / cm 3, melting point 105 ~ 115 ° C.

Polypropylene (PP) applications: microwave oven cutlery, pots, plastic buckets, vacuum flask shells, woven bags, etc.

Characteristics: high chemical stability, good hygienic performance and high heat resistance. Microwave tableware can be selected from plastic products marked with PP.

Toxicity: Non-toxic, harmless to the human body.

The polymer can have three stereostructures: isotactic, syndiotactic, and atactic polypropylene, the first two being crystalline and the latter not. Commercially available polypropylene products are basically the same structure, melting point 164 ~ 170 degrees Celsius, crystalline part density of 0.935 g / cm3, non-clean part of 0.851 g / cm3.

The biggest disadvantage of PP is that it is easy to oxidize and age. It is now overcome by adding an antioxidant and an ultraviolet light absorber.

Polyester (PET) applications: plastic beverage bottles, medicine bottles, cosmetic bottles, oil bottles and various caps, insulation caps.

Features: good transparency, not easy to break, good chemical stability, suitable for a variety of liquid or solid pharmaceutical packaging. It has good shielding properties against ultraviolet rays.

Toxicity: Non-toxic.

PET plastic bottles are the mainstream of beverage packaging. China's beverage packaging industry is dominated by PET plastic bottles. So far, no better or better packaging materials have been found to replace PET plastic bottles. PP bottles are mainly one-step injection and two-step heating. The PP bottles molded in the blow molding machine have the advantages of being bright, strong and heat-resistant, and the price is lower than the radical data. Can be stored at 100 ° C

Generally, a 0.1%-0.4% sorbitol xylene nucleating agent is added to a PP plastic bottle, and a high-lumen PP plastic bottle can be produced by blowing, blowing, injecting, kneading, and the like. PP plastic bottles have good temperature resistance, bottle shape is sensitive, safety, hygiene and content taste are inferior, and the price is cheaper than PET, PS, PE and other materials. The use of PP plastic bottles in beverage packaging stores has gradually approached PET bottles. The development of modified resins, anti-reflecting agents and mechanical equipment skills has enabled PP containers to replace glass, PET and PVC containers, and has broad prospects for shopping malls.
