THE RECYCLING PET PROCESS
MacDermid Chemicals are a vital component in the recycling PET process. PET (PolyEthylene Terephthalate) is a strong but lightweight material used to make containers for drinks, personal healthcare and other food and non-food applications. PET is fully recyclable.
Typically after collection the used containers are washed to remove labels and residues, ground into flake then sorted (by floating / sinking) to remove other plastics such as polypropylene and polyethylene.
