Can You Use Plastic With The Triangle Code Number 7 For Hot Water?
, on the plastic cup with the triangle label number 7 AND may it be for the use of hot water?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In using plastic containers, we do have to be careful because not everything can be used to store food. Some may only be used once, some may be used for certain foods and drinks, and some may not be used at all. Because if it is still used, it has the potential to cause cancer and a host of other health problems.
Regarding your question, the plastic with the code is one that is quite safe and some sources state that it can hold water with temperatures reaching 100 degrees without causing the coating to melt or dissolve into water. So if you want to use it to collect hot water, no problem.
Furthermore, because plastic cannot be separated from our daily lives and it is not impossible that you will meet with different codes, add your insight by reading what is meant by numbers and other codes by reading the following article about the Triangle Code Under Plastic Packaging . So, hopefully answering your question.
