PET – indispensible for packaging

PET is fast developing into an indispensable product for the food and packaging industries, PET has the advantage of being fully recyclable with great mechanical and optical properties. It is environmentally friendly, sustainable , has good gas and moisture barriers and has high impact resistance.

Applications include: Food, Lamination, Print, Household, Medical, Box & Thermoforming

 

RPET

RPET is a popular choice for all packaging users with a lower cost over pure virgin APET, a second life material, saving landfill space and helping carbon emissions. Recycling of PET is well established making it the most widely recycled plastic across the world.

 

APET Virgin

APET Virgin has exceptional glass like clarity, excellent durability, which makes it an ideal choice for applications requiring attractive packaging with maximum product visibility.

 

Anti-Fog PET

The formation of “Fog” on PET for cold stored or warm filled Food products is the result of condensation of water vapours on the material surface leaving droplets of water. This not only effects the transparency of the Food product in the cold storage shelf, but also can lead to food spoilage.

By using our Anti-Fog PET grade it displaces the droplets of water on the PET surface and improves the transparency vision and look of the food products.

 

Antistatic PET

We offer an Antistatic grade for packing of Electronic products.

 

Hot Fill PET

For applications that require heat resistance of up to 95°c, such as inline product filling, sealing hot tunnel applications & hot drinks
(Not for microwaving or Cooking applications)
