The FaceShield is made from PET; What is the benefit of PET vs. PVC?
PET has very high optical clarity and fits into the recycling systems (Like coke bottles and PET water bottles) so it fits into the circular economy. PVC is based on chlorine and its disposal is more difficult and releases dioxins if burnt below 600C, for packaging PET is always advised over PVC as it is UV resistant and strong with good barrier properties, for face shields PET or Polycarbonate (Bullet proof glass) are the main materials of choice.
