The newest PET bottles are now available in the US. The new technology, which creates an almost perfectly smooth inner wall, creates a much better packaging for beverages, cosmetics, and other applications. The new technologies also give the bottles an interesting and eye catching outer finish.
A new foamed polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottle technology will give carbonated beverages, wine, spirits, cosmetics, personal care and other applications, physical and visual properties not previously available in a monolayer bottle. It is also suitable for certain aseptically packaged products.
The Fi-Cell (fine cellular) foamed PET bottle is being made available to the U.S. marketplace under the recently announced representation agreement between Plastic Technologies, Inc. (PTI) and Toyo Seikan Co. Ltd. The technology has already been commercialized by Toyo Seikan in Japan for a line of coffee drinks.
One of the Fi-Cell’s key attributes is that the process produces monolayer bottles with a smooth inner and outer wall surface (Other foamed bottle technologies require an overmolded bottle to achieve a similar result.).
