Plastics today are mostly made from natural materials such as cellulose, coal, natural gas, salt and crude oil through a polymerisation or polycondensation process. The output of this is Virgin Raw material. Plastics can also be made from waste and renewable materials through a process of sorting, cleaning, washing and extruding. These are categorised as Recycled Raw Materials.

Any Off-Grade Material is from a Petrochemical and is categorised as Off Grade because of not having the same standard as the Virgin Material. Although the standards are different from a petrochemical point of view, it could be advantageous for the buyer for various reasons, most importantly being the price.
