Smile Plastics sample - Bottle D

Description

Smile Plastics Ltd started making a range of recycled plastic bottles in 1994. This sample is one of a group of 10 made in the early 2000s, it is made from bottles gathered from varous UK municpal authority collection schemes. The exact mix will also vary according to area the bottle sare collected from and the season of the year. The manufacturing process produces a characteristic flow pattern resulting in a cenral spotted spine which extends and streaks outward towards the edges and corners. The bottles are collected sorted, flaked, and thoroughly washed to remove any remaining contaminants. The multi-coloured flakes are then compressed into sheets which retain all the colours of the original bottles.
