PET jars, hot fill, Liquid Container, packagingLiquid Container’s new ThermaSet line of hot-fill, wide-mouth PET containers is available in stock and custom sizes. The line is the first to offer sustained hot-fill performance at 205 degrees Fahrenheit, says the company. This makes ThermaSet containers well-suited for viscous food items (apple and pasta sauces, jams and jellies and tomato-based products) which tend to fill at higher temperatures. The ThermaSet line is said to be based on a proprietary process developed by Liquid Container which substantially increases PET’s glass transition point. The end result is sustained thermal stability at 205 degrees Fahrenheit and shrinkage of less than 1 percent.
