rPET for technical applications

POLYMETRIX SSP process technology is particularly well suited to produce rPET pellets or flakes with very high viscosity. The high viscosity rPET is mostly used for packaging straps but it also finds its way into other high tenacity applications. Typically these products are made from 100% rPET.

rPET treated in POLYMETRIX SSP processes fulfills the specific requirements of the strapping industry with respect to strength, elasticity and sealability. These high quality standards are achieved regardless of the source and color of the collected bottles. Due to good availability and lower costs, green bottles are often preferred.
