At Precious Plastic, we enjoy trying new things. We process plastic that we get from nature cleanups and small-scale plastic collecting, primarily from friends and family.
We work with following types of clean plastic:
#2 HDPE (Milk jugs, water and juice lids, cleaning products, shampoo bottles)
#5 PP (Consumables, yogurt containers, cleaning products, car bumpers, take away containers.
After we acquire the plastic, we examine the little number encased in the triangle beneath the object to establish the type of plastic it is, then we sort the plastic by type and color. Once it has been sorted, it is shredded, melted, and then injected into metallic molds. The shredder and the injection machine were both locally constructed. As an alternative, we test melting and molding the plastic using basic tools and equipment (a countertop oven and silicon molds).We are currently planning to purchase a new machine in the near future that will enable us to produce plastic sheets (100 x 100 cm and 1, 2, and 3 cm height).With this gorgeous marble appearance sheets, we intend to make furniture and decor items.
