PET(Polyethylenterephthalate) is a form ofthermoplasticresin,light andresistant, transparent polyester.
Thanks to its highmechanical and chemical resistance, excellent performanceas an insulating of gas and odor andlow weight, is now thepreferredpackaging materialforbeverage manufacturersworldwide.
It is usedfor the manufacture ofcontainersof soft drinks,juices, water, oils, foodstuffs, household cleaners, and other products.
PET, besides being arecyclable materialisextremely lightand thus contributestodecrease the weightof the packages, while reducingthe emission of pollutantsandfuel utilizationduring transport. Froman energy standpoint, recycled PETuses just30%of the energy neededto manufacturecontainers, compared tothose madefrom virginresin.
