Foamed bottles

147430-pdx0908410PLA.jpgThe oPTI™ foamed PET bottle technology provides desirable features and esthetics for brand owners looking for a distinctive visual presence, while at the same time retaining the recycling benefits of the clear PET wastestream. The molding process enables white or silvery colored bottles to be made without additives that can limit package recycling. Containers also have a unique surface feel and provide tactile “traction,” which minimizes slipping. This process also affords prominent details, which enables decorations such as embossed logos to stand out better. The co. says its bottle capability is based on using the MuCell® microcellular foam injection-molding technology to produce preforms that then can be blow-molded on conventional equipment.
