6 Things Must Know Before Buying Pet Food Can Lids

We think that one of the most enriching and delightful experiences in life is to own a pet. An animal which you nurture and take care of by yourself or with the help of your family is bound to be an almost never-ending source of joy and happiness, a creature which will be very grateful to you and who will amaze you with its tricks and personality.  When you get a pet you will—without a doubt—have to take care of a creature which will depend entirely on you. The life or death of another being will be in your hands and this alone will make you a more responsible person. You will need to always keep a watchful eye on your pet and this will boost your ability to control other tasks. Effectively having a pet makes a person more responsible, the level of commitment and care of the owner will inevitably reflect on their pet. When they are young animals generally can’t eat as much canned food, so it is a pity and a waste to throw away the remaining food. What do you do at this time? Maybe from the lid that can be kept food fresh. But there are many kinds of products in the market, and some are good and some are bad in qualities. What kind of pet food lids is the most suitable? The following content will briefly say 6 important information, we hope it is helpful to your purchase.

It is very important for people to know that nothing is eternal and that both humans and animals live and die. Having a pet helps people understand the cycle of life and how everything we have is bound to end someday. Dealing with life and death is one of the most difficult tasks in life and owning a pet prepares individuals to deal with the harsh emotional events in life. People who have owned several pets during their lifetime deal better with emotional trials and better endure emotional losses in their lives.

Plastic Recycling

An estimated 8 million metric tons of plastic pour into the oceans every year, amounting to the equivalent of one garbage truck every minute, USAID Counselor Chris Milligan told a crowd at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C., said on August 8th, 2019. This makes us feel the need for plastic recycling again.

There are now five massive patches of floating garbage in the world’s oceans. We found microplastics in the Arctic Sea ice, at the most remote stretches of islands in the Pacific and in the deepest ocean trenches.

Most ocean plastic comes from land-based sources, said Counselor Milligan:
An enormous amount comes from cities in the developing world which cannot adequately manage their waste. This includes a number of cities in the rapidly urbanizing countries of South and Southeast Asia. Ocean plastic waste is a global problem, but waste management is a local issue. It is not difficult to see from his speech-plastic recycling is a practical and necessary method.

*What is plastic recycling?

Plastic recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastic and reprocessing the material into useful products. Since the vast majority of plastic is non-biodegradable, recycling is a part of global efforts to reduce plastic in the waste stream, especially the approximately 8 million metric tonnes of waste plastic that enters the Earth’s ocean every year.

*Plastic Recycling Logos

The plastic recycling logo was established by the Society of the Plastics Industry (now renamed Plastics Industry Association) in 1988. This set of logos will be plastic material identification code on the container or packaging, from No. 1 to No. 7, so that people do not need to bother to learn the similarities and differences of various plastic materials, can simply join the ranks of recycling work. Each plastic container has a small ID card – a triangular symbol, usually at the bottom of the plastic container. There are 1 to 7 numbers in the triangle. Each number represents a plastic container. They are made of different materials and different taboos.

* plastic recycling symbols meaning

Plastic recycling No. 1 PET

PET (polyethylene terephthalate), a container made of this material, is a common plastic bottle for soda, also known as bottles.

Qiming Packaging PET products are as below:

Besides that, common mineral water bottles, carbonated beverage bottles also made from PET. It is easy to deform from heat resistance to 70 C, and has substances harmful to the human body to melt out. The carcinogen DEHP may be released from No. 1 plastics after 10 months. Qiming Packaging recommends you not put it in the sun or in the car or fill it with alcohol, oil, etc.

Plastic recycling No. 2 HDPE

HDPE (high density polyethylene), detergent, shampoo, bath milk, edible oil, pesticides and other containers are mostly made of HDPE.

Qiming Packaging HDPE products are for your reference

Qiming Packaging suggest you not use it as a water cup . Don’t recycle if it’s not thoroughly cleaned.

Plastic recycling No. 3PVC

PVC (polyvinyl chloride), mostly used in the manufacture of water pipes, raincoats, schoolbags, building materials, plastic film, plastic boxes and so on.

Qiming Packaging PVC  products are as followings

Because of its excellent plasticity and low price, it is widely used and can only resist heat at 81 C. It is easy to produce bad substances at high temperature, and seldom used in food direct packaging.Qiming Packaging reminds you not to buy drinks if they are packed by PVC.Like an egg with a shell, you can rest assured to use a PVC tray.

Plastic recycling No. 4 LDPE

LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene), plastic bags everywhere are mostly made of LDPE.

The fresh-keeping film, plastic film, etc. When high temperature occurs, harmful substances are produced. When toxic substances enter the human body with food, they may cause breast cancer, congenital defects of newborns and other diseases. Qiming Packaging advice you are not put the LDPE film in the microwave oven.

Therefore our LDPE products are non-food ones,Qiming Packaging focus on LDPE plastic end caps plugs covers for pipes ,flanges and valves.

Plastic recycling No. 5 PP

PP (polypropylene) is used to make water cans, garbage cans, baskets, food containers for microwave ovens and so on.

Common soybean milk bottles, yogurt milk bottles, juice beverage bottles, microwave oven lunch boxes. It can withstand high temperatures up to 167 degrees Celsius. It is the only plastic box that can be put into the microwave oven. It can be reused after careful cleaning. It should be noted that some microwave oven lunch boxes are made of No. 5 PP, but the lid of the box is made of No. 4 PE. Because PE can not withstand high temperature, it can not be put into the microwave oven with the box body. Our Qiming Packaging food grade PP container as below for your reference.

Plastic recycling No. 6 PS

PS (polystyrene), because of its low water absorption, is mostly used to make building materials, toys, stationery, rollers, as well as drink cupboxes or disposable tableware in fast food stores.

Plastic recycling No. 7 OTHER

Other. Common PC categories, such as kettles, space cups, milk bottles. Department stores often use water cups made of this material, PA, or nylon, for the internal parts of textile fibers and some household appliances. PC is easy to release toxic substance bisphenol A at high temperature, which is harmful to the human body. So Qiming Packaging reminds you when using, do not heat or do not direct sunshine.

Our goal is to provide our customers the recycling plastic so that they can participate in the world economy as equals and be bettering in addressing global challenges. (This article is written by Qiming Packaging Lynette, if copy request, please indicate the source or contact mail@qiminggroup.com for more exchanges.)If you want to know more about our products or do not find the one you are looking for,you may visit us the other website.

PVC and PE

The Difference Between PVC and PE

Our life is inseparable from plastic products. There are two kinds of materials in plastic products, PE and PVC, which are very easy to confuse. Hope our next article will help you understand more about them–The Difference Between PVC and PE. (Examples include)

1) PE materials are compared with traditional plastics and have excellent thermal properties. When the PE material is heated, the crystallization portion gradually decreases as the temperature increases. To increase the crystallinity of PE materials, it is best to increase the density of such materials. As a result, the melting point of the PE material will also increase.

1. PE material is a crystalline polyethylene crystalline polymer, and different densities of polyethylene have different crystallinity. If the crystallinity of the PE material is high, the density must also be very high.

2) Now many manufacturers and merchants make PE materials for plastic packaging products such as water tanks and cans. Moreover, these plastics have excellent anti-oxidation and anti-aging properties. Not only is it cheap, but it is also more durable, and it is quite economical.

2. The main component of PVC is polyvinyl chloride, and other ingredients are added to enhance its heat resistance, toughness and ductility. The uppermost layer of this surface film is lacquer, the main component in the middle is polyvinyl chloride, and the lowermost layer is a back-coated adhesive. It is a well-loved, popular and widely used synthetic material in the world today. Good flexibility, easy to form, not brittle, non-toxic, non-polluting, long storage time, so it has a large

The essence of PVC is a vacuum blister film, which is used for surface packaging of various panels. It is also called decorative film and adhesive film and is used in many industries such as building materials, packaging, medicine, and packaging.

Although PVC and PE have many differences, they are suitable for packaging products. For example, PVC transparent egg tray made of PVC material through the blister process, PE transport egg tray or turnover egg tray made of a PE material through a blow molding process.

Are PVCs dangerous?

Are PVCs dangerous? Can you use it with confidence? Many people may have that doubts. After all, PVC is quite common in our daily life. This post mainly analyses the composition and raw materials. We hope to have a little help in solving your confusion.

The following picture must be familiar, right? It’s the most common PVC packaging. Let’s first understand the definition to see if we can get the answer to “Are PVC’s dangerous”.

Are PVCs dangerous?
Are PVCs dangerous?

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is also a commonly used plastic. It is a resin composed of PVC resin, plasticizer, and antioxidant. It is not toxic in itself. But the plasticizers and antioxidants are toxic. The plasticizers used in daily polyvinyl chloride plastics are mainly dibutyl terephthalate and dioctyl phthalate. These chemicals are toxic. The antioxidant lead stearate of polyvinyl chloride is also toxic. Lead precipitates from PVC products containing lead salt antioxidant in contact with ethanol, ether, and other solvents. Lead-containing polyvinyl chloride (PVC) can be used as food packaging when it meets fried sticks, fried cakes, fried fish, cooked meat products and cake snacks, which will cause lead molecules to diffuse into grease. Therefore, PVC plastic bags can not be used to hold food, especially oily food. In addition, polyvinyl chloride plastic products will slowly decompose hydrogen chloride gas at high temperatures, such as about 50 degrees Celsius. This gas is harmful to the human body, so polyvinyl chloride products should not be used as food packaging.

PVC is divided into soft PVC and hard PVC. Because soft PVC contains softener, it is easy to become brittle and difficult to store, so its scope of use has been limited. Hard PVC does not contain softener, so it has good flexibility, easy to form, not brittle, non-toxic and non-polluting, and it also has a long storage time, therefore it has great development and application value.

The PVC industry is developing rapidly in the world and has broad prospects. All countries are optimistic about the potential of PVC and its benefits to the ecological environment. PVC is demonstrating its role and status to the world with its superior and unique performance, which cannot be replaced by any other products. Social development needs it, environmental protection needs it, it is an inevitable trend of the progress of our human society.

For example, some common PVC material packaging materials in the supermarket like egg trays, quail egg trays, and fruit trays, etc. They are all PVCs.

In a word, PVC is a kind of polymer of chlorine and acetylene. PVC itself is non-toxic at room temperature. But only when PVC is used at high temperature or when it is processed with toxic additives can PVC be harmful to the human body. In general, drinking or eating high-temperature objects are not recommended to contact PVC products. We guess that you have a deeper understanding of this question-“Are PVCs dangerous?”.

How to buy a blister packaging?

Blister packaging: a general term for the production of plastic products by the blister process and packaging of the products with the corresponding equipment. Blister packaging products mainly include blister, tray, plastic box, synonym: vacuum cover, blister and so on. Blister pack equipment mainly includes a plastic molding machine, punching machine, sealing machine, high-frequency machine, folding machine. The packaged product formed by the package can be divided into the card, suction card, double bubble shell, half bulb shell, double folded bulb shell, three fold bulb shell and the like.

Blister: A plastic processing technology. The main principle is to heat and soften the flat plastic sheet. It is vacuum-adsorbed on the surface of the mold and cooled to form. It is widely used in plastic packaging, lighting, advertising, decoration, and other industries.

Bubble shell: The transparent plastic hard sheet is made into a transparent plastic with a specific convex shape by a blistering process, and covers the surface of the product to protect and beautify the product. Also known as a blister, vacuum cover.

Blister mold: mold for plastic production, the lowest cost is plaster mold, followed by electroplated copper mold, the most expensive is aluminum mold. The mold is drilled with small holes for vacuum adsorption of the heated hard sheets to form a blister product.

Blister molding: It is the blister that we often talk about. The plastic soft sheet that is softened by heating is absorbed on the surface of the mold by a plastic forming machine, and after cooling, plastic having a concave-convex shape is formed.

Blister cutting: plastic products after plastic forming, through the punching machine, the large sheets are cut into individual products by knife die.

Folding: The three sides of the blister are folded to the back with a folding mechanism so that in the next packaging process, the paper card is inserted into the hem to form a card package.

Heat sealing: It is a blister packaging process. The paper card coated with blister oil is heat-sealed together with a blister by a sealing machine to form a blister card package.

High-frequency sealing: It is a blister packaging process. A high-frequency machine is used to generate high-frequency, and the blister and the blister are bonded together to form a double blister package.

Those Plastic Things You May Not Know

Every day, people use plastics in various applications. Over the last 50 to 60 years, the uses for plastic have expanded to infiltrate virtually every aspect of life. Because of how versatile the material is, and how affordable it can be, it has taken the place of other products including wood and metals.

The properties of the various types of plastics make it beneficial for manufacturers to use. Consumers like it because it is easy to use, lightweight and easy to maintains.

Large Round Plastic Bucket Water Bucket Many Colors Available, 1-5 Liter with plastic handle, 10-25 L with Plastic handles.FREE samples available for quality checking on 1-20 L white plastic buckets with lid and handle.

Types of Plastics

Overall, there are about 45 unique types of plastics and each type has dozens of different variations. Manufacturers can change the physical structure just slightly to benefit the application for which they are using it. When manufacturers change or modify things like the molecular weight distribution, the density of the melt indices, they alter the effectiveness and create plastics with many specific properties – and therefore many different uses.

Clear PVC type plastic

small plastic buckets

Two Plastic Categories

There are two main types of plastics, thermoset plastics and thermoplastics. Breaking these down further, you can see the everyday uses of each type. With thermoset plastics, the plastic will hold its shape long term once it has cooled to room temperature and hardened thoroughly.

This type of plastic cannot return to its original form – it cannot be melted down into its original form. Epoxy resins and polyurethanes are some examples of this type of thermosetting plastic. It is commonly used in tires, auto parts, and composites.

The second category is thermoplastics. Here, you have more flexibility and versatility. Because it will return to its original form when heated, these plastics are commonly used in various applications. They can be made into films, fibers, and other forms.

Specific Types of Plastics

Below are some of the specific types of plastics and how they are in use today. Consider their chemical properties and benefits, too:

PET or Polyethylene terephthalate – This plastic is ideal for food storage and water bottles. It is commonly used for things like storage bags, too. It does not leach into the food, but is sturdy and can be drawn into fibers or films

PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride – It is brittle but stabilizers are added to it. This makes it a softer plastic that’s easy to mold into various shapes. It is commonly used in plumbing applications because of its durability.

Polystyrene – Commonly known as Styrofoam, it is one of the less ideal options today for environmental reasons. However, it is very lightweight, easy to mold and it works as an insulator. That is why it is heavily used in furniture, cabinetry, glasses, and other impact-resistant surfaces. It is also commonly added with a blowing agent to create foam insulation.

Some of the chemical components in plastics are believed to affect the development and reproduction of animals. Their waste fills the earth, and those chemical components eventually penetrate into the groundwater; plastic waste is thrown into the ocean, and some animals swallow it. That is sad!

However, there is always another side of the balance. Plastics also have benefits, not only economic but also environmental.
Cars made of plastic parts are lighter and consume less fuel; plastic packaging prolongs food preservation time and reduces waste; if the bottle is not plastic, it must be glass. What kind of broken bottle do you want to see in the amusement park where children go to play?

In the end, we must improve the recycling and reuse of plastics, even if it is because crude oil is not used.

Some plastics cannot be recycled, such as bakelite, but many that can be recycled are still not recycled. In fact, the recycling rate of plastic packaging is only about one-seventh, far less than paper and steel. The recovery rate of other plastic products is even worse.

Improvement requires everyone to work hard. As you may have seen, some plastic products now have a small triangle with numbers 1 to 7. That is the “resin identification code”, which is an initiative of the Plastics Industry Association to help recycle. But this system is far from perfect.

If the industry can make more efforts, the government can. At present, the recycling rates of plastics in various countries and regions vary greatly. However, a very successful example is Taiwan.

The measures taken by Taiwan have made recycling more convenient and the offenders face fines, successfully challenging the traditional attitude of people dealing with garbage.
So, is there any other technical method for managing plastic waste? People who love science fiction must love a recently new invention: ProtoCycler. Give it plastic waste, it will spit out 3D printed wire! Moreover, all Qiming packaging plastic products’ material can be recycled.

Which plastics can you put in the recycling bin?

The important environment of environmental protection is the basic premise of human survival &development. Which plastics can you put in the recycling bin? You’re an eco-conscious individual – you try to use less of what you can and recycle what you do. But when it comes to plastics, just what can you recycle? Some, like 1L soda bottles, are obvious, but what about milk bottles? Or blister packs? What about plastic bags?

Fortunately, that little on the bottom of your plastics can tell you a lot about how to dispose of them properly. So if you’re wondering if you can throw your take-out boxes in the recycling bin, refer to this handy guide:

#1 – PET

PET is one of the most widely used and recycled plastic resins. Found in plastic drink bottles and microwavable food trays, most can be disposed of in standard curbside recycling bins. So PET is the plastics which can put in the recycling bin

We always use PET jars to pack candies, dry fruits and nuts.The PET jars from Qiming company have high quality.

#2 – HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene)

HDPE is a resilient plastic film commonly used in plastic grocery bags, as well as drink bottles (notably milk jugs), and non-food containers (such as those for shampoo or detergent). Plastic grocery bags are notoriously hard to recycle, and for the most part, can only be recycled by bringing them back to the store, but other HDPE products can be left in the curbside recycling bin as well.

The material of Jerry cans from Qiming is PE. Various sizes can meet different requirements 

#3 – PVC

PVC is another strong plastic that’s highly resistant to impact and grease and oils, found commonly in meat wraps, medical packaging, pipes, and blister packs/clamshell packaging. Unfortunately, PVC is a very difficult plastic to recycle, and due to the chemicals used in its manufacture, even a small amount can contaminate up to a half ton of recycled plastic. Check with your local recycling firms before depositing PVC products in your recycle bins.

The material of egg trays from Qiming is PVC. Various sizes can meet different requirements.

#4– PP (PolyPropylene)

Among other uses, PP is most commonly used as bottle caps for plastic bottles. Unlike the PET bottles, though, PP caps cannot be recycled in the same process. While some municipalities (for example, the majority of California), will accept #5 plastic in their curbside recycling program, double-check beforehand and always remove the caps from your bottles first. Plastic buckets, Round, square and rectangle are all available. So PP plastics put in the recycling bin.

#5 – Other

Given the miscellaneous nature of plastics in this category, almost no municipal recycling program will accept #7 plastic in their curbside bins. On the other hand, biodegradable plastics fit into this category. These plant-based plastics can only be composted in an industrial composting recycling facility, though, so contact your local composting center for more information on how to properly dispose of these plastics.

And all Qiming plastic product belongs to recycled standards. Should have any other interest, please contact us to discuss more.

What is the difference between PVC and PE?

1. About PVC and PE

What is PVC?

Polyvinyl chloride is a polymer of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) in the presence of an initiator such as a peroxide or an azo compound; or a polymerization mechanism under the action of light or heat. The vinyl chloride homopolymer and the vinyl chloride copolymer are collectively referred to as vinyl chloride resins.

PVC is a white powder with an amorphous structure, with a small degree of branching, a relative density of about 1.4, a glass transition temperature of 77-90 ° C, and decomposition at about 170 ° C. The stability to light and heat is poor, above 100 ° C or over a long period of time. When exposed to sunlight, it will decompose to produce hydrogen chloride, and further autocatalytic decomposition, causing discoloration, and physical and mechanical properties are also rapidly declining. In practical applications, stabilizers must be added to improve the stability to heat and light.

Industrial production of PVC molecular weight is generally in the range of 50,000 to 110,000, with greater polydispersity, molecular weight increases with the decrease of polymerization temperature; no fixed melting point, 80-85 ° C begins to soften, 130 ° C becomes viscoelastic state, 160 ~ 180 ° C began to transform into a viscous flow state; has good mechanical properties, tensile strength of about 60MPa, impact strength of 5 ~ 10kJ / m2; has excellent dielectric properties.

2. Main differences-Difference Between PVC and PE

A.The difference in an application:

Polyethylene (PE) applications: plastic wrap, vest plastic bags, plastic food bags, buckets, kettles, etc.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) applications: plastic wrap, plastic shoes and leather products, film, cable, plastic bags.

B.Different characteristics:

Polyethylene (PE) has a waxy feel and is lighter in weight and has certain transparency compared to the same plastic.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) characteristics: hard plastic, commonly used in industrial fields.

C.Material performance difference:

Polyethylene referred to as PE. It is a polymer of ethylene and is non-toxic. Easy to color, good chemical stability, cold resistance, radiation resistance, electrical insulation. It is suitable for packaging materials for food and medicine, making utensils, medical equipment, and insulating materials for the electronics industry.

Polyvinyl chloride, referred to as PVC. It is a polymer of vinyl chloride. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a synthetic material with many advantages and is an ideal material for engineering plastics. Good chemical stability, acid, and alkali resistance. Resistant to moisture, aging and flame retardant.
