PET, a polyester compound similar to clothing fabric.

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is heated and molded into plastic bottles to package consumer goods, foods, and beverages. You can distinguish a PET bottle by the triangle symbol with a “1” molded inside.

Strong, chemically stable, shatter-resistant & economical.

PET is the material of choice for both packaging producers and end-users as it is strong and lightweight.

PET is an incredibly versatile material with countless packaging applications, from household cleaners to carbonated beverages and peanut butter jars.

Eco-conscious and sustainable.

It can be reused and recycled back into plastic containers, or other materials such as carpets and clothing fibers. PET recycling programs are available in every municipal region in North America.

Its lightweight design requires less material to produce and less fuel for transportation.

Recognized worldwide for its safety by health officials.

BPA (Bisphenol-A), a chemical found in other plastics that can cause adverse health effects.

Phthalates (phthalate ester plasticizers). PET is a different molecule from phthalates.

Any hormonal (endocrine) disruptors. There is no reputable scientific data that links PET to estrogen or hormonal modulating activity.

Additives form a barrier against temperature, UV light & oxygen.

This increases a product’s shelf life and protects it from breaking down from environmental factors.

We have the capability to produce PET bottles with barrier additives to ensure that your product stays fresh and that your packaging looks great on product shelves!

HDPE, the most versatile plastic resin used in container manufacturing.

HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) is a thermoplastic polymer made from petroleum, resulting in an opaque container. We extrude & inject the plastic into bottles & containers such as milk jugs and automotive oil bottles.

Resistant to many chemicals.

HDPE is very stable for medicines and food products, as it avoids spoilage. 

It is the best solution for harsh chemicals, such as bleach and acids.

Very durable. It doesn’t crack or break.

HDPE keeps the packaging’s integrity intact. It has high impact resistance and is resistant to environmental conditions such as mold.

HDPE is commonly used for strict UN packaging specifications.

Eco-conscious & sustainable.

It can be re-used 100%, without waste and is highly recyclable. 

As a material that’s commonly used in the packaging industry, the infrastructure exists to recycle HDPE.

Versatile with many applications.

HDPE is available in different grades of resins to match your specific purpose & product application.

Shampoo bottles are an example of blow mold grade HDPE containers

Vitamin/pill packers are an example of injection grade HDPE containers.

PP, a thermoplastic used in a wide variety of industries and applications.

PP (Polypropylene)

Fills in the gaps when needed.

PP is used for applications that PET & HDPE can’t serve on their own and is perfect for containers whose needs don’t fit strictly into PET & HDPE.

Can be made to be fully translucent

PP allows visibility into the container, whereas HDPE doesn’t. Full translucence is traditionally necessary for some containers, for example, in syrup bottles.

Stronger, stiffer & has higher temperature resistance than PET.

Unlike bottles or containers made of PET & HDPE, PP containers can be boiled, cleaned in the dishwasher, and filled with warm liquids.

The surface can be printed on directly

PP can be used for a variety of printing techniques including high-heat printing, such as screen printing.
