Cosmetic packaging materials classification


Full name polyethylene terephthalate, it is the No. 1 material in the international material label number. Its main features are high airtightness, good compressive strength, high water resistance, very transparent, and its transparency is as high as 95%, higher than that of other commonly used plastic packaging containers, but it is not heat resistant. It is commonly used in packaging materials for food, beverage bottles and cosmetic bottles. Because of its high airtightness, the packaging container has no pores, so it is best to use it as a container for packaging alcohol.

(2) HDPE

The full name of high-density polyethylene, which is commonly known as high-density PE, is the No. 2 material in the international material marking number. Its main characteristic is good acid and alkaline resistance. The products made from it are translucent, and the heat resistance is not very good. It is used to make the packaging container with pores. It is commonly used in chemical products such as packaging containers for medicine bottles and cosmetic packaging materials.

(3) PVC

The full name of PVC, it is the No. 3 material in the international material labeling number, its main characteristics are transparent, heat-resistant, before the advent of PET, it is to replace PET, used in mineral water, juice and other beverages, the largest role It is used for the production of water pipes for building materials, and the outer wire of electric wires. The packaging container made of it has pores, so it is not suitable to use it for wine filling.

(4) LDPE

The full name of low-density polyethylene, which is known as low-density PE, it is the fourth material in the international material labeling number, because it has a low molecular density, so it is softer than HDPE, processed into a translucent product, not Heat-resistant, with pores, but it is good acid and alkali. Containers made of this type of material are often used in chemical and cosmetic packaging materials such as: facial cleansers, salads, bottles of glue, cosmetic bottles, and the like.


Full name polypropylene, it is the No. 5 material in the international material labeling number, it is a high-density material, processed with it into a semi-transparent product, heat resistance, impact resistance, acid and alkali resistance, but there are pores. It is commonly used for hot filling of packaged foods, microwaveable cooking utensils, high temperature foods and general household face plates, mugs, and other daily-use microwave-grade processing such as measuring cups.


Full name polystyrene, it is No. 6 material in the international marking material number, used it to process the product into a highly transparent, good sealing, but fragile, not heat-resistant. It is commonly used in the processing of sealed cans and food boxes.

(7) PC

The full name of polycarbonate, it is the No. 7 material in the international marking material number, processed with it made of transparent, high heat resistance, not broken. It is commonly used in the processing of baby bottles, distilling barrels, heat-resistant barrels, and medicine bottles. It belongs to the best in plastic, but its price is the highest among the seven products.
