Sample of the month: Recycled Plastics

Recycled plastics can be made from a variety of products including yoghurt pots (HIPS –High Impact Polystyrene), plastic bottles and chopping boards. Once processed these plastics can produce a dense hard material that is scratch proof and waterproof and can be heat moulded or cut into shape. The material can be used in kitchens, bathrooms or for table or worktops, it can also be used in sculpture or jewellery.

These samples can be found in the Samples Library housed in our Materials Room in the Basement of the Library.
