The introduction of PET polymers is resulting in the ever-growing demand for high precision bottles. The entire world is now accepting plastic as a product. And, a wide range of innovative, affordable, and sustainable solutions are in the market.
This blog explores some of the primary reasons why PET packaging solutions are getting popular across the globe for a countless number of applications:
Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is Innovative, Adaptive, And Cost-Effective
Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is one of the most used packaging materials. The factors that drive the popularity of PET as a packaging material are:
- Good Barrier properties
- Food grade
- Easy to work with
- Molding ability
- Amazing shatter resistance, and
The bottling industry finds it unmatched in creating different types of containers. All this happens with the support of single stage molds.
Amazing Design Flexibility
The advent of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) containers has changed everything. The CPC players have also realized the need and importance of designs and shapes. They started using PET containers to differentiate their products. Some of the top capacities of PET that make it easy to work with include the following:
- It is easy to form and shape in any desired way
- It is easy to emboss and de-boss
- It is easy to process with so many decorations techniques
- It is cost-effective, and offers better results in the quickest turnaround time.
- Light Weight
PET offers amazing design flexibility in sterile applications. In aseptic processes, manufacturers sterilize products and packages before stocking. Since the containers don’t need to be heat resistant, there are more choices in design and weight in the PET containers manufactured using single stage molds.
Sustainability And Productivity
Packaging is a very competitive and dynamic industry. The lightweight attributes have made PET the most powerful contender. Productivity improvement is yet another aspect wherein PET excels. Recyclability also plays a pivotal role when it comes to achieving sustainability. The entire packaging industry has realized the importance of recyclable PET containers. And, ADS molds play a significant role in the manufacturing of countless PET containers.
