The quality of toys in the children’s toy market can now be described as good or bad. There are many small toy manufacturers who do not hesitate to shoddy. Not only are they particularly harmful to children, but they are also subject to legal sanctions. What are the security risks of plastic toys? Here are some introductions:
Plastic recycling enterprises use simple waste plastics from simple sources to be processed into “two materials”, which are supplied to toy factories as raw materials for toy production. This is also the main reason for the safety and quality of harmful chemical substances, plastic materials and structures in plastic toys.
Recycling of plastics can reduce energy consumption and protect the environment. In the plastics industry, recycled plastics (commonly known as “two materials”) are widely used. However, in order to make the strength, rigidity and impact resistance of recycled plastics not to be reduced, individual toy manufacturers often add plasticizers to improve their performance during recycling. In the process of recycling and recycling waste plastics, some organic solvents such as tetralin, α-methylstyrene or formaldehyde are also added. The residues of these chemicals pose a certain safety risk to the human body.
Toy products made from recycled plastics may have three risks in product quality and safety:
First, the strength, rigidity and impact resistance of plastics are reduced, they are easily broken or broken, the small parts or fragments are detached, and there is a danger of being swallowed by children. At the same time, the sharp tips produced by them are easy to harm children;
Second, it is possible to add excessive plasticizer, causing the plasticizer to exceed the standard;
Third, in the process of recycling and recycling waste plastics, harmful substances in the solvent, especially volatile organic compounds remaining on the finished product, may cause harm to consumers.
