PET is the most commonly used plastic in the world. The plastic material is primarily used for food packaging that requires glass-clear quality, e.g. fresh salads, fruits, cold meats, snacks, etc. PET is a very tough and flexible plastic material with high impact strength. Additionally, PET packaging is simple to transport and will not break. PET is fully recyclable and can be turned into a multitude of new uses.
PET is available in different types: APET (amorf PET), CPET (crystalline PET), DPET (direct-to-sheet) and rPET (recycled PET).
