Regarding plastic tableware, the main materials available for food use are PP and PS polystyrene. PP is relatively soft, with a normal usage temperature between -6 ° C and+90 ° C. The previously popular foam plastic lunch box has now been eliminated from the market. Law enforcement officials said that the raw materials of the foam lunch box contained harmful substances. Once the hot food is added, the harmful substances in the foam plastic are easy to condense on the food and enter the human body with the food, thus causing harm to the human body. In addition, disposable lunch boxes made of foamed plastic are difficult to degrade and do not decay for many years.
