PET (Polyethelene Terepthalate )

 


PET is a thermoplastic resin of the polyester family and is used in synthetic fibers; beverage, food and other liquid containers, thermoforming applications and food packaging application. Its monomer (bis-?-hydroxyterephthalate) can be synthesized by the etherification reaction between terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol. Polymerization under melt and solid conditions through a polycondensation resction of the monomers can produce several product grade depend on required polymer chain length (called as Intrinsic Viscosity or IV).
 
PET based on PTA are used every day in packaging products like soft drinks, water, sports drink, foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, toiletries, household products and others. The advantage of PET resin is its glasslike and resilience. It is also non-hazardous and recyclable product, which is now the most important element from the environmental viewpoint
 
We ensure stable high quality products to value our customerís loyalty. It is a part of our culture which you can experience in our products:
   
  Free antimony grades (BK-5180B and BK-6180B)
Antimony leaching issue has become our concern. We have developed and provide BK-5180B and BK-6180B to erase the risk of antimony migration to the contained products hence it is safer for food and beverages packaging. High melting temperature featured in BK-5180B makes it possible for high temperature processing such as hot fill and pasteurization applications without any risk in antimony leaching.
 
   
  Common bottle grades (BK-2170 and BK-2180)
With low antimony content but excellent brightness and clarity, we offer these grades for common bottle applications.
   
 
   
  Strong bottle grade (BK-2185P)
High intrinsic viscosity (IV) grade which gives strength. It is suitable for bottle need high chemical packaging, as well as CSD applications.
