Chemical compatibility, chemical resistance and corrosion resistance are among the greatest advantages of plastics in comparision to metals. By choosing the right polymer family, the user can put himself in the position of being able to withstand even the harshest environmental conditions without the need for additional protection such as surface treatment, painting or hodic protection.
From plastic waste to new chemical products Plastics do have proven benefits during their use phase – for example preservation of food loss, lightweight construction of vehicles and building insulation. Plastic waste, however, and in particular plastic waste in the context of marine littering, is perceived as a major global challenge.

May 21, 2009 · Boston, MA — A new study from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers found that participants who drank for a week from polycarbonate bottles, the popular, hardplastic drinking bottles and baby bottles, showed a twothirds increase in their urine of the chemical bisphenol A
Plasticsrelated compounds are not the only kind of endocrine disruptors found in the environment. Others include pesticide and fungicide residues, and industrial chemicals such as polychlorinated biphenols (PCBs). See this Emory University site for a good summary, and this Wikipedia page.

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE DATA These recommendations are based upon information from material suppliers and careful examination of available published information and are believed to be accurate. However, since the resistance of metals, plastics and elastomers can be affected by concentration, temperature, presence of other chemicals and other factors.
The harmful chemicals associated with plastics can be divided into three egories: ingredients of the plastic material, byproducts of manufacturing and chemicals adsorbed from the environment. The possible toxicological responses caused by plastic can thus be a combination of all of these chemicals.

Plastics contribute to approximately 10% of discarded waste. Depending on their chemical composition, plastics and resins have varying properties related to contaminant absorption and adsorption. Polymer degradation takes much longer as a result of saline environments and the cooling effect of the sea.
Many methods exist for the recycling of plastic solid waste. Chemical recycling, which can take many forms from hightemperature pyrolysis to mild, solutionbased alytic depolymerization, can
It's in water bottles, sippy cups, and the seams and linings of cans containing food: Bisphenol A (BPA) is the chemical's name, and manufacturers use it to harden plastic. Unfortunately, it
