PET Plastic: Major Properties and Technical Specifications

by Acme Drinktc ASB Molds, Single Stage Molds Supplier

The plastic containers that you use in your everyday life are manufactured making use of different types of shapes known as Molds for 50MB Machine and Molds for 70DPH Machine. PET plastic is the material that is used to make these containers. PET is also called polyethylene terephthalate plastic that belongs to the polyester family, and is considered to be the most preferred packaging material for the following reasons:


        PET Plastic is recyclable

        Offers unmatched chemical resistance

        Polyethylene terephthalate is extremely stronger for its weight

        Non-breaking and non-fracturing abilities

        Offers unmatched strength and thermo-stability 

        Inexpensive and lightweight

        Re-sealable, and

        Highly resistant to shattering.


Be it PET plastic or any other variant, all are produced using synthetic materials that don’t have any natural compounds in them at all. To make a wide range of plastic containers, a combination of different inorganic compounds is used utilizing Molds for 50MB Machine and Molds for 70DPH Machine
