Polypropylene Products

The production of five types of plastic is now standard. Polypropylene is considered the most popular type of plastic. This plastic is minimally harmful to health.

Polypropylene plastic is obtained by heating and further compressing synthetic raw materials. Thanks to the high pressure, obtaining the highest quality material is possible, which becomes the strongest and safest type of plastic. It is widely used in producing plastic utensils, yogurt, processed cheese containers, semi-finished products, carbonated drinks, and other products. Polypropylene's main advantage is its heat resistance and relatively high temperatures. The maximum temperature that this plastic can withstand is 150 0 C. This simplifies our lives and saves time because food can be heated in a microwave oven in plastic containers without using glass or ceramic vessels. In public catering facilities, polypropylene plastic utensils are widely used for hot coffee, tea, and other beverages.

Advantages of Using Polypropylene Utensils

Polypropylene products have their label, which is indicated by PP. Such plastic has three degrees of heat resistance - high, medium, and low. This label indicates that they are the safest when heated. They can be used for heating in microwaves or ovens. It can also be used in dishwashers. It is necessary to consider the markings on the bottom of the dish. Therefore, on the shelves of shops, places of public catering, and at home, you can find products made of this plastic. Also, lids for cans used in everyday life are made from this material.

Polypropylene belongs to environmentally friendly plastics, so its use is widely used in medicine. Such dishes have high hygienic properties and save us from spreading many harmful diseases. It is also characterized by its high strength. For example, it will not break in a light impact or fall. Plastic products are lightweight. It does not corrode. Affordable. It does not absorb foreign odors. Disposable polypropylene dishes do not need to be washed and cleaned after eating; it is enough to throw in the trash.

Types of Plastic Utensils and Their Characteristics 

Plastic utensils are divided into two large groups - disposable and reusable. The first is made of less strong and durable plastic and is discarded immediately after use. The second can be used more than once (as a rule, these are all types of dishes, trays, bottles, etc.). Before buying disposable plastic utensils, ask what material it is - polystyrene (fragile and thinner, can withstand temperatures up to 70 °) or propylene (much more robust, can withstand temperatures up to 130 °). Less common are products made of polylactide and other biodegradable materials (they decompose entirely in a few months). 

Plastic Containers - Basic Requirements 

Plastic food accessories are products that have an extensive list of requirements. Among the main ones is the attractive appearance. Disposable tableware for a buffet, picnic, or another event should be beautiful - evenly colored (if it is colored), without deformations and other defects. This is the only way you and your guests will enjoy using it; Compliance with generally accepted hygienic and medical requirements. Because disposable plastic utensils come into contact with the food a person eats, their poor quality can seriously harm health. So if you plan to use food containers or other utensils for hot meals and drinks, you should choose products made of durable propylene of sufficient thickness.
