What are rigid plastics?

Rigid plastics are a specific type of plastic material that is characterized by its stiffness, strength, and ability to maintain its shape even when not in use. They are manufactured using various thermoforming processes and encompass a wide range of products such as buckets, watering cans, flower pots, pasta strainers, garden furniture, laundry baskets, plastic pallets, trash containers, and pipes. These plastics are highly durable and strong which makes them commonly used in both households and the industrial sector.

It is important to note that rigid plastics differ from flexible plastics which possess a soft and pliable nature. Flexible plastics find their application in products like plastic bags, packaging films, and shrink wraps. While both types of plastics can be recycled; recycling rigid plastics can pose more challenges due to their size and shape. However with advancements in recycling technologies and machinery; the process of recycling rigid plastics has become more efficient and effective over time. This progress plays a crucial role in waste reduction efforts as well as promoting sustainable processing practices.

What materials are rigid plastics made of?

Rigid plastics are made of various materials including:

  • PE (Polyethylene)
  • HDPE (High-density Polyethylene)
  • PP (Polypropylene)
  • PS (Polystyrene)
  • PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)
  • PA (Polyamide)
  • PC (Polycarbonate)
  • ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene copolymer)
  • PVC (Polyvinyl chloride)

Rigid plastics can be produced from thermoplastics using various processes. For example, toys and car parts are manufactured by injection molding, bottles and containers are produced by blow molding, and large hollow bodies such as industrial drums or water storage tanks are produced by rotational molding.

Approximately 65% of the rigid plastics fraction consists of polyolefins such as PP, PE, and HDPE.
