    PETP (polyethylenterephthalate) is light-weight, stiff, rigid, fracture-proof, aroma-tight and transparent like glass. Collected and ground PETP bottles are a sought-after basic material for the manufacture of a great number of different products.   HDPE (high-density polyethylene) is harder and stiffer than LDPE (low-density polyethylene). Withstanding higher temperatures and highly resistant against chemicals, it is used […]
