Production of CPET sheets
Sheets made out of CPET (Crystalline Polyethylene Terephthalate) can be thermoformed into trays that are used in microwaves, conventional ovens, and in other applications where a high temperature stability is required (up to temperatures of 220°c). Applications for CPET trays made of DuFor materials are ready meals, airline trays and deep frozen meals. A typical CPET tray is made of a main layer in combination with a co-extruded top layer to allow sealing of a lidding film.
Usage of recycled PET for the production of CPET
In addition to the use of virgin materials, we can also offer a solution for the usage of recycled materials. Our grade EcoClear E05 300 green is made of 100% post-consumer PET bottle flakes and is suitable for the production of CPET.
