Information @ a Glance


  • Polyethylene Terephthalate or PET as it is more commonly known is a light and strong form of clear polyester made from modified ethylene glycol and purified terephthalic acid.

  • Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is one of the most commonly used food grade packaging plastics due to it's chemical inertness and appealing physical properties.
  • PET is a plastic that can successfully provide a clear, strong bottle, and one that is mostly impermeable to carbon dioxide.


  • PET bottles are manufactured by the process of injection stretch blow moulding which was developed specifically to maximise the beneficial properties of PET.
  • Recycling of PET Bottles is the activity whereby bottles made out of PET are collected, sorted and processed in order to reuse the material out of which they are made.
  • Antimony is often used as a catalyst in the production of PET plastic.
  • Collected PET bottles are frequently recycled into fiber, film, sheet, pellets and new bottles.


  • Producers of barbecue sauce also use PET bottles which allows for the oxidation of the sauce by oxygen gas going into the bottle.

  • Reclaimed PET is in demand for fiber, sheeting, nonfood containers, strapping, and molding compounds.

  • PET was originally produced to be used in fibres. Bottles now represent the most significant use of PET moulding resins.

  • The use of plastic bottles eliminates the problem of breakage associated with glass and, like glass, PET is totally recyclable.


  • The bottled water market is the largest segment of the beverage sector by volume, with 160 billion liters sold.
  • A major trend in the beverage packaging sector is the replacement of glass bottles by PET containers.
  • European producers of high quality mineral water, as opposed to table water or spring water, are starting to use PET bottles.
