Polyethylene Terephthalate

Temperature range: -40ºC up to 70ºC

High transparency. Ideally suited for cold foods.

Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate APET is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family that produced by the chemical industry and is used in synthetic fibers; beverage, food and other liquid containers; thermoforming applications; and engineering resins often in combination with glass fiber. It is one of the most important raw materials used in man-made fibers.

The majority of the world's PET production is for synthetic fibers (in excess of 60%) with bottle production accounting for around 30% of global demand. In discussing textile applications, PET is generally referred to as simply "polyester" while "PET" is used most often to refer to packaging applications.

RPET (recycled PET)

RPET contains a minimum of 50% of PET derived from post consumer recyclate (PCR) whilst meeting the approved requirements for direct food contact. RPET is a versatile food packaging material having a gas barrier for increased shelf life, superb clarity, strength and rigidity that makes it the material of choice for retailers. RPET is not only made using recycled post consumer waste, it can itself be recycled through approved material recovery facilities.

All “RPET" packaging we produce contains a minimum of 50% post-consumer RPET content and a minimum 30% post-industrial PET content.
