3. Nature, size and application of theidentification
To permit the generic identification of used plasticsparts, the identification marking should be im-pressed on the surface of the part either in raisedlettering or in relief.The size of the lettering is dependent on the size ofthe part. The recycling pictogram should be clearlyrecognizable. The identification should be separatefrom the manufacturer identification data. It shouldbe located at a readily accessible point where it canhighlight the material's recyclability.
4. Identification of thermoplastics
4.1 The identification to be used for the basicpolymers is as follows:Apec
>PC-HT<(high heat resistant Polycarbonate)
* See disclaimer for developmental products
Additional information on the marking of specialgrades from our product range is available in thefollowing tables.All Bayer MaterialScience engineering thermoplas-tics can be remelted without displaying any instabil-ity. Thus, they are suitable for reuse within theframework of recycling processes, even for severaltimes, when they once become waste.In order to ensure high-grade reuse, it is recom-mended that unreinforced, reinforced and FRgrades of each plastics type be collected sepa-rately. Even better results are obtained by collectingsingle grades and single colors separately. There-fore it is recommended that further material identifi-cation be provided in the form of additional detailson the trade name and grade, the date, the classifi-cation and designation of the compound, and,where appropriate, the part manufacturer.
