PET containers

PET ContainersA new generation of hot-fill, wide-mouth PET containers, including stock and custom jars, is the first to offer sustained hot-fill performance at 205 deg F, making it suitable for viscous food items (apple and pasta sauces, jams and jellies, and tomato-based products) that tend to fill at higher temperatures. Typical container shrinkage following the thermal cycle ranges from 1.5 to 4 percent. Body dimensions tend to become compromised, affecting everything from finish/seal integrity to labeling, the co. says. Another benefit of the proprietary process is that it yields an incremental improvement in barrier properties.

Liquid Container, 630/231-0850.
