Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)

SPI Code

General Properties

  • Clear
  • Hard
  • Tough
  • Solvent resistant
  • Good gas and moisture barrier properties
  • High heat resistance
  • Microwave transparency

Common Uses

The good gas and moisture properties of PET, together with the fact that it is tough and clear, make it ideal for fizzy drink and beer bottles. Its high heat resistance makes it especially suitable for pre-prepared food trays and boil-in-bag food pouches. Other common uses include soft drink and water bottles, fibre for clothing and carpets, strapping, and mouthwash bottles. PET is now replacing HDPE in many applications, such as shampoo bottles etc.
