Recycled Plastic Quality Indicator Development Using Material Testing Results and Radar Chart
Quality of recycled plastic is usually below than its virgin material. Status of quality compared to its virgin material quality helps producers and consumers to ensure viability of the material both as a manufacturing product as well as a raw material. A set of material testing result table accompanied with radar chart of its ratios proposed as a tool in representing quality indicator of a recycled plastic. An easy identification of lower and lowest quality and also better quality in certain material characteristics help producers and consumers to make a fast evaluation and further decision related to recycled plastic quality improvement and its proper utilization as raw material.
