What Plastics can be “Natural” Colored?
Natural colored plastics can be found in HDPE (high-density polyethylene), MDPE (medium density polyethylene), LDPE (low density polyethylene), or PP (polypropylene) containers. When made of these resins, the original color is the blur "natural" color. Other plastic resins such as PS, PETE, and PVC are all clear in their original state. Dyes and colorants can be added to any resin to create a variety of colors, such as cobalt, green or yellow. However, if these colorants are not added, high density polyethylene, medium density polyethylene, low density polyethylene, and PP are originally "natural" coloring.
