Plastic Identification

To aid with polymer identification for plastic recycling purposes, many plastic product manufacturers mark their products with a plastics identification marking system, but this only covers the major plastic groups which are currently being recycled. 
Many other plastics types are classed as “Others” in the system. If you have any trouble identifying plastic products, Polyfab would gladly be willing to assist in identifying the polymers.
