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.
