plastic materials

material caps, mostly, we 3plastics use HDPE, LDPE, PP materials to make plastic caps, for example, HDPE material is kind of rigid and durable so this material caps can be used many times, maybe you already noticed that the number "2" surrounded by the arrows on the lining of the cap, the "2" stands for HDPE.
