PET resins

Article-PET resins

ParaStar PET resins are introduced using the co.'s IntegRex technology, reportedly making it possible for converters to create bottles using fewer processing steps. The resin offers unprecedented clarity, improved bottle-to-bottle consistency and acetaldehyde levels lowered by 25 percent or more. Particularly cited for bottled water use, the resins are described as drop-in replacements for standard PET on bottle-making equipment and are fully recyclable, with Q1 '07 availability.
