With the global "carbon reduction" boots landing one by one, environmental protection culture has long been popular. However, there are so many environmental protection materials on the market, why is PCR plastic favored by big brands?
PCR (post consumer recycling), that is, post consumer plastics, mainly comes from the secondary recycling and extraction of daily chemicals, electrical appliances, automobiles and other plastics after our daily consumption. The "recycling" we used to deal with before is actually called PIR, post industrial recycling. Generally, the source is the nozzle, sub brand and defective products produced when the factory injects the products, which are directly recycled and reused from the factory.
At the same time, many policies conducive to the certification of PCR recycled modified plastics have been introduced one after another: for example, the British tax and Customs issued the "plastic packaging tax", and the packaging tax rate of less than 30% recycled plastics is £ 200 per ton. At home, all large enterprises have to fulfill the social responsibilities issued by local governments, which makes domestic and foreign brands strengthen the selection of PCR plastics.
In addition, the more representative is still the vehicle pcr-pp material, mainly from household appliances and end-of-life vehicles. It has relatively stable impact toughness and can still meet the requirements of interior and exterior decoration materials after modification. It is mainly used in car pillar trim panel, sun visor, ceiling and other parts. After all, "wool comes from sheep". Of course, due to its excellent flame retardancy and impact resistance, PC and PC / ABS auto parts with PCR content of more than 60% mentioned above are also common at present.
For example, pcr-abs products have the advantage of being very close to the white of raw materials. At present, this environmentally friendly plastic has been applied to the appearance of household appliances. It is estimated that compared with ordinary plastic products, carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by about 40-50% when PCR plastics are used.
