Standard Classification for Recycled Post-Consumer Polyethylene Film Sources for Molding and Extrusion Materials
|Publication Date:||1 November 2003|
|ICS Code (Films and sheets):||83.140.10|
This document provides for the classification of post-consumer polyethylene (PE) film derived from specific sources. It also identifies characteristics that the user and supplier can agree upon 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
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 post-consumer PE film sources described within this classification.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in brackets are for information only.
NOTE 1 - There are no equivalent ISO standards.
