PET Preforms

PET Strapping

Oriented or tensilized polyester are the strongest type of plastic strapping product. They are used as a viable alternative to steel strapping in some industries.

PET Trays

Special grades of PET are used for take-out food containers, as well as prepared food trays that can be warmed in the oven or microwaved. These "dual ovenable" trays, and containers have the same basic chemical formula as PET bottles/jars- but have special additives that crystallize , and toughen the PET, so it can withstand the much higher temperatures of oven/microwave heating.
