Polyethylene Terephthalate granules have cylindrical shape. It is a food grade copolymer fast reheat resin engineered to deliver the most efficient injection moulding and blowing while maintaining excellent colour characteristics.
It builds upon the established combination of slow crystallisation at moulding and reduced energy consumption at blowing which results in energy and cycle time reduction versus conventional resins. It is also suitable for conversion into extruded sheet and thermoformed containers.
