Is melting plastic dangerous?

Yes, but only if you reach the burn-rate which is the temperature above which the elements combust and become toxic fumes. It is imperative to our own health AND the health of the environment that we work within acceptable temperatures that help us mold the plastic without burning it.

To ensure this we:

  1. we limit the types of plastic to HDPE, LDPE and PP which have the lowest potential of creating noxious fumes
  2. wearing masks is a must during the cooking stage
  3. we have well-ventilated space to prevent any issues relating to toxicity.
