Standard Classification for Recycled Post-Consumer Polyethylene Film Sources for Molding and Extrusion Materials
|Publication Date:||1 December 2008|
|ICS Code (Films and sheets):||83.140.10|
This document provides for the classification of postconsumer polyethylene (PE) film derived from specific sources. It also identifies characteristics useful in determining the acceptability of the film for recycling into molding and extrusion materials. It is neither the intent nor the purpose of this classification to specify the suitability of the recycled material for specific applications.
This classification provides that the source of the material be
listed as an aid in identification. The separation by source also
improves the usefulness of the material. Sources are post-consumer
PE films from shrink wrap, dry cleaning film, merchandise bags,
grocery sacks, stretch wrap, recycle bags, redemption bags, bubble
packaging film, and commercial/industria
It is not the function of this classification to provide data for specific product design or process-performance purposes.
The supplier shall provide a written certification with each shipment stating that the material is derived from postconsumer PE film sources described within this classification.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
NOTE 1-There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
