Dangers of plastic

The idea is really great, but what about any possible danger? Or you only work with specified classes of plastic? Your machines heat plastic that can contain something like BPA, so are these products safe for use after recycling them? I’m sorry if I’ve missed something, but I couldn’t find any information about this on your site.

Hi Nadin

I’ve written a short piece about this in the blueprints, hope it helps!


Various research results show many different opinions on whether heating plastic is dangerous or not. Many of them show that keeping the temperature of the plastic in the melting zone (not burn- ing it) isn’t harmful. To be on the safe side, I personally try to avoid inhaling any plastic fumes, always where a carbon-mask and make sure there is good ventilation.
