To assist recycling, the Plastic Bottle Institute of the Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI) devised the system to mark plastic bottles by type. You'll see a triangle with three "chasing arrows" encasing a number corresponding to the plastic type: PETE, HDPE, PVC, LDPE, PP, PS, and OTHER.
At Reedy, our success is measured by the success of our customers. We work closely with each company and strive to help them achieve the best balance of performance versus cost savings.
Don't take our word for it…here's what some of our customers have to say about us:
The VP of Engineering for a large food packaging manufacturer said,
"By using Reedy's product, SAFOAM® P-50, we were able to increase blow reaction and reduce part weight by 15%."
The VP of Sales for a Northeastern custom injection molder said,
"SAFOAM® PE-80 has allowed us to reduce our part weight by 14% as well as reduce cycle times by almost 15%."
A Technology Manager for one of the world's largest pipeline manufacturers said,
"SAFOAM® FP-40 has allowed me to reliably achieve uniform and consistent foaming of polymeric thermal insulation for subsea oil and gas transmission pipelines, and meet precise density, compressive creep resistance and thermal conductivity criteria."
Enrique Yaffar of ChemiCorp, Reedy sales agent, said,
"Reedy's SAFOAM® FP-40 used at 1% has allowed our customer to reduce the density of HIPS sheet between 25-35%. It produces a very fine cell structure on the surface, improving printability."
