They are made of PET resins, which are linear thermoplastic, white but bluish resin made from terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol through a process of polycondensation. PET preforms are either produced using the one-step hot preform method or the two-step cold preform method. PET preforms have applications such as carbonated soft drinks, water, food, non-carbonated drinks, cosmetics & chemicals, pharma & liquor, and others. These application segments drive the PET preforms market globally. In 2016, the carbonated soft drinks segment accounted for the largest share of the PET preforms market and is expected to continue to be the largest segment throughout the forecast period. PET preforms are used in packaging of carbonated soft drinks due to their properties such as light weight, ease of handling, technical performance, and longer shelf life. The growth in consumption of carbonated soft drinks has increased the demand of PET bottles, which, in turn, has led to an increased demand for PET preforms. In 2016, the Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the global PET preforms market. China is expected to account for the largest share of the Asia Pacific PET preforms market till 2022, whereas, India is anticipated to be the fastest-growing PET preforms market during the forecast period. With the growing awareness regarding health, consumers are avoiding sugary beverages and inclining more towards healthier options such as juices, bottled water, and sports and energy drinks. This is affecting the carbonated soft drinks market and might act as a restraint to the growth of the PET preforms market. Companies have adopted strategies such as new product developments, expansions, and mergers & acquisitions to enhance their market shares and widen their distribution networks in the PET preforms market. These companies engage in research & development activities to innovate and develop products that can open new avenues of applications. For instance, Retal Industries Ltd. started construction of a manufacturing plant and a regional headquarter in Donora, US. The company has planned to invest at least USD 15 million in the project which may reach up to USD 24 million. With this project, the company expects to increase its regional presence in North America. Source: Marketsandmarkets

“Be supportive. Be careful. Be alert. Be kind”, says one of the posters issued by World Health Organization. Manufacturing companies are not exception. They must supply food and beverages, household chemicals and sanitizers without any delay while the demand is increasing. Packaging disposability and hygiene are the king now. Be supportive. This is the point where PET Technologies lends its shoulder to products manufacturers. The company provides short lead-time and wide range of solutions: PET stretch blow molders and packaging equipment, blow molds and PET bottle design development. Local service teams guarantee machines operation without any downtime. Be careful. To wash hands with alcohol based hand rub or water and soap is one of the key recommendations of the World Health Organization to the global community. The demand for sanitizers, often bottled in PET, also increases. PET Technologies helps to solve this shortage supplying PET stretch blow molders to produce containers between 100 ml and 40 L with output up to 14 000 bph. Be alert. This is another recommendation by World Health Organization. Each of us must follow the latest advice it provides. According to BloombergNEF, “Concerns around food hygiene due to Covid-19 could increase plastic packaging intensity”. Thus, PET containers applications might expand. Thanks to flexibility, PET Technologies can provide not standard application of its blow molders. Our recent project with Rez-Tech Corporation (the United States) is an example. Be kind. Only 3 days a person can survive without water. Meanwhile, 1 in 3 people globally don’t have access to safe drinking water, according to WHO report. PET bottles is one of the cheapest ways to supply clean aqua to the most remote corners. Their consumption is growing drastically now. The capacity varies between 200 ml and 40 L. PET Technologies can help you to choose the blow molder that meets your demand, whether it is 2 L bottle, 10 L bottle or 5 US gallon water cooler bottle. Let’s be safe and smart! It is challenging now to keep supermarket shelves full. This leads to manufacturing facilities expansion, while sanitizers or water demand increases. PET Technologies will help you to choose optimal PET stretch blow molding solution or develop an attractive PET bottle design. SOURCE: PET TECHNOLOGY

Canada’s largest janitorial support company is bringing its innovative industrial secret to the kitchens and bathrooms of everyday Canadians through their revolutionary Green Seal Certified cleaning pods. Plastic is a problem and water is heavy – Earth Brand tackles these problems by reusing existing bottles and taking the ‘just add water’ approach to the at-home cleaning process. According to Oceana, Canadians produce a lot of plastic waste; an estimated 3.3 million tonnes per year. About 2.8 million tonnes of plastic waste ends up in Canadian landfills every year – equivalent to the weight of 24 CN towers. Given this, the Government of Canada has recently passed legislation that bans single-use plastics by the end of 2021. Earth Brand ensures that consumers can access high-quality cleaning solutions without the need for additional plastic waste. By replacing the need for single-use plastic cleaning products and reducing transport-related carbon emissions by up to 95%, Earth Brand is transforming the way Canadians clean with their easy-to-use and sustainable cleaning solution. The completely dissolvable pods can be used to refill and reuse any existing spray bottle. Alternatively, the one-time purchase of a reusable Earth Brand bottle system will allow the consumer to simply add water to produce a powerful, earth-friendly cleaning solution. By reusing existing plastic bottles, Earth Brand limits contributing to the overwhelming amount of plastic that currently exists in our environment. By recycling the Earth Brand Pouches that contain the pods, the system has a negative plastic footprint when reusing a single-use plastic spray bottle. Earth Brand’s initial cleaning line-up is everything a consumer needs to keep their home clean, without contributing to the global plastic problem: Glass CleanerBathroom CleanerKitchen CleanerDisinfectant Cleaner For ease-of-use, the pods are colour-coded, creating a cleaning system that is simple and intuitive – no specialized or complicated cleansers are needed. Consumers simply drop the dissolvable cleaning pod into water, shake, and they’re ready to clean. With lower shipping costs and no need for repeat bottle purchases, this innovative cleaning solution comes in at 75% of the cost of traditional, brand-name cleaning products. “I am thrilled to introduce Earth Brand cleaning pods to the world. As an environmentally-conscious buyer and new father, I am always looking for ways for our family to be environmentally responsible, conveniently, without sacrificing quality or spending a fortune,” says Nik Barey, who is spearheading the launch of Earth Brand. “We feel strongly that dissolvable cleaning pods are the future when it comes to household cleaning. We’ve seen the adoption of pods for laundry and dishwashing, it only makes sense for cleaning around the house!” Nik continued. Earth Brand has a mission to remove single-use plastics from the cleaning routines of Canadians. By implementing pod-based cleaning solutions, consumers are able to reduce plastic waste introduced into the environment, reuse their favourite existing bottles, and recycle their plastic waste conscientiously.

To be sure of consistent quality in the finished bottle, you need consistency in raw materials, so accuracy is critical in blending of PET materials for the production of preforms. Virgin PET, in-house regrind and post-consumer reclaimed material, colorants and additives need to be precisely metered and thoroughly mixed. If you use reclaimed PET in yourpreforms, you probably have a very specific target percentage. Below that target and they won’t meet environmental and economic commitments. Over the target and the blend may need to be recrystallized or you risk having the amorphous regrind agglomerate (clump together) in process equipment. Therefore, accuracy to within 0.5% is required. An improved control algorithm intelligently analyzes dozens of weight readings in a matter of milliseconds, filtering out electronic noise and the effects of vibration. After every dispense cycle, the control adjusts automatically for minor variations in dispensing, as well as for changes in resin bulk density and particle geometry. The mixing chamber is totally enclosed, ensuring that all pellets and minor ingredients are accounted for. For PET preform producers who have special requirements, TrueBlend units can also be customized to include such unique options as:• Flow inducers in material bins.• Optional vertical augers, which operate whenever the dispense valve is open, ensure that even difficult-to-flow materials like PET bottle regrind flakes are fed smoothly to the weigh bin. No material hang-ups. Accuracy in Blending and Feeding High -temperature blending components– including load-cells, level sensors and air cylinders, are specified for their ability to stand up to temperatures of 350°F (175°C) and higher. Electronic components are isolated from elevated temperatures. This prevents premature failure or generation of erroneous data that results in diminished mixing accuracy. Now you can confidently blend high levels of regrind direct from the crystallizer or you can dry preform materials before they are blended, preventing separation of ingredientsin the drying hopper.

A preform is an intermediate product that is subsequently blown into a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) container. Preforms vary in neck finish, weight, colour and shape, and are specifically designed to meet the needs of customers in different market segments. Preforms are manufactured from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), so they are called PET preforms. They are produced using a highly-accurate injection molding process on equipment from the leading world vendors. Preform weight depends on the end container’s desired volume. Preforms can be single-layer or multilayer. Barrier preforms provide additional benefits and increased beverage shelf life, thanks to a special layer embedded in several layers of polyethylene terephthalate.
