Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is currently the thermoplastic material most in demand in the thermoforming synthetic packaging market. Its outstanding attributes are its excellent transparency equal to that of glass and its brilliancy an additional advantage is its high mechanical strength allowing the production of dimensionally stable rigid packaging with relatively small wall thicknesses and its excellent oxygen barrier qualities which makes it suitable for fresh foodstuffs.
