High-Density Polyethene (HDPE) plastic is a low-cost thermoplastic polymer with linear structure and no or low degree of branching.
Formed either through the catalytic cracking of crude oil into gasoline or the modifying of natural gases such as methane, ethane and propane mix, this plastic material is manufactured under a low temperature between 70-300°C as well as a pressure of 10-80 bar.
Amongst the many different plastic materials, they can classify into seven general types of plastic categories, each manufactured with varying combinations of resins and printed with their respective numberings for identification.
The classification of different plastic materials are indicated on most the bottom of the plastic containers, where there would be arrows rotating in a triangle around a number in the middle.
This plastic is usually milky white or semi-translucent, has superior puncture, low permeability and temperature resistance, and is more rigid and stronger than LDPE / LLDPE but also tears easier and has a propensity to crinkle.
Bags made of this plastic are usually stronger than LDPE but do not stretch as much.
This type of polyethylene is used on a much smaller scale than HDPE and is often used for garbage bags and for consumer packaging.
LDPE is often chosen for consumer packaging where strength is not a requirement like bags for bread, newspapers, frozen food, fresh produce, dry cleaning garments, etc.
Bags made from this material are very flexible and easy to stretch, and are clear and glossy.
LLDPE is selected for its higher tensile and impact strength and better heat sealability, whereas LDPE is often selected for its higher clarity, ease of processing and higher gloss.
PP is often chosen for food packaging where low permeability, heat sealing and high clarity is advantageous or required like bags for candies, cookies, herbs, nuts and other confectionaries.
These plastic bags are often based on degradable polyethylene which contains additives (organic transition metal compounds) and/or degradable monomers that cause the plastic to slowly break down when exposed to sunlight, moisture, and oxygen.
Made from renewable crop-derived materials, mainly corn starch and biobased aliphatic polyesters like polylactic acid (PLA) and polyglycolic acid (PGA).
These plastics are fully biodegradable and compostable and considered not harmful to the environment.
They are either made of high-quality plastics or of natural or synthetic textiles like polyester, cotton or jute.
These materials can be reprocessed at the end of their useful life but require more material and energy to manufacture.
Incorporated in 1977, Teong Chuan Plastic (M) Sdn Bhd was founded by Mr Chuah Boon Ghee. At the start, the business was focused primarily on producing polypropylene plastic strings. Over the decades, Teong Chuan diversified its offerings but remained insistent on quality and customer service, which have cemented its reputation as a brand that represents a standard of excellence.
Today, it continues to expand and grow as one of the leading brands and producers of HDPE plastic packaging and products, both in the domestic and international markets.
