MARKING OF PLASTIC PARTS

1.

Scope—This SAE Recommended Practice provides a system for marking plastic parts to designate the type of material from which the part was fabricated. Purpose—The purpose of this document is to provide information to facilitate the: a. Selection of materials and procedures for repairing and repainting plastic parts b. Collection and handling of parts for subsequent recycling

SAE J1344 Revised JUL97 3. 3.1 Description The system is based on standard symbols for terms relating to plastics published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO 1043). Most commonly used symbols, including some not covered by ISO, are shown in Table 1. In addition, symbols for commercial plastic blends are shown in Table 2, and symbols for commonly used automotive fillers/reinforcements derived from ISO 1043-2 are shown in Table 3. If additional symbols are required to cover new materials, the form in Appendix A shall be completed and submitted to SAE. New symbols will be included in the next revision to this document. Use of Marking Symbols In view of the wide variety of parts used in substantially different assembly situations, this document does not prescribe the location, and/or method of marking; however, the following guidelines should be followed: Field service people should be informed regarding the material from which the part is made so suitable repair and paint procedures may be used. Wherever practicable, the marking should be located where it may be observed while the part is in use. Consideration should be given to the use of multiple markings on large or complex shaped parts. From the standpoint of field service people, marking on the outside surface of the part (in an unobtrusive location from the viewpoint of the owner) is preferred. Markings applied with inks, dyes, or paints should not bleed, run, smudge, or stain other materials which may come in contact with the marking. Marking should be designed to remain legible during the entire life of the part. Markings which are molded into the part are preferred since they are permanent and do not require separate manufacturing operations as do those applied to the surface of the part after molding. Molded in markings should not create a stress concentration site which could result in premature cracking of the part. The recommended practice for the standard marking symbol is as shown in Figure 1. Dimensions are suggested guidelines. Markings should be proportional to part size.
