Polyester and (r)PET raw materials for the production of Rigid Packaging
Rigid Packaging is one of the globally fastest growing industries. Most commonly produced products by means of extrusion are APET and CPET sheets, which are generally thermoformed into trays. Examples of injection-molded packaging products are cups, bottles, and containers.
The use of recycled materials is increasingly more important because it reduces the need for fossil based raw materials. Many rigid packaging applications present excellent opportunities for the use of recycled materials. DuFor offers a range of recycled polyesters (rPET) that are approved for direct food contact applications.
Tailor-made virgin polyesters
To obtain the highest possible quality packaging in terms of mechanical properties, sealability, color, processability etc., we also offer CumaPET virgin grades that can be custom-made for your specific packaging application.
