PET Sheet Types
UniPET specializes in manufacturing and supply of PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) Sheets in both Clear and Colored forms to suit any specific application requirements.
Biodegradable (BioPET) Sheet
- Bio-Based Pet
Generally, PET consists of 70% terephthalic acid and 30% of monoethylene glycol (MEG). However, it is now possible to produce “bio-based” MEG from renewable raw materials instead of using fossil resources.
The basis for this bio-based MEG is ethanol manufactured from sugar cane rather than using ethanol produced from oil.
This is a ‘drop-in’ solution and is therefore able to replace conventional PET in a wide variety of applications. Typical applications are bottles, trays, automotive and other injection molding applications.
- Oxo-Bio Pet/Biodegradable Pet
In this type of PET Sheets, a bio-degradable PET additive is used to enhance the bio-degradation of plastic by adding in hydrophilic parameters to the polymer chain. This allows microbial enzymatic action to reduce the structure of the polymer by utilizing macromolecules within the plastic polymer.
This additive does not compromise the physical properties of the plastic. The product maintains its regular shelf life and tensile strength while enjoying the benefits of enhanced biodegradation.
BioPET has the following advantages:
- Can be recycled at up to 100% in the existing PET recycling streams
- Properties & processing are the same as of fossil PET
Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate (A-PET) Sheet
The material is composed of 100% virgin PET material. A-PET films are widely used for packaging consumer goods, electrical accessories, and medical products. In packaging applications, A-PET films act as excellent barriers to acids and strong oxidizers.
A-PET films also exhibit good resistance to grease, fat, and oils. The resistance characteristics make these polyester films best suited for food packaging applications, as they do not absorb flavors or impart off-tastes.
Flexibility as well as high temperature and impact resistivity are some significant features of our A-PET sheet. A-PET films are available in black, white, as well as custom colors.
Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (R-PET) Sheet
and cleaner future.R-PET sheet with tight tolerances is ideal for packaging, laminating, and custom thermoforming applications. R-PET films are best suited for rigid packaging applications in industries ranging from food and medical to automotive. Compared to plastic resins such as PP, PVC, and HDPE, R-PET materials have high tensile yield strengths.R-PET films exhibit resistance to strong oxidizers, alcohol, and hydrocarbon solvents. In food packaging applications, R-PET films act as barriers to fat, grease, and oil. Depending on special packaging requirements, can coat R-PET sheet with silicone or anti-static/anti-fog materials.
Glycol-Modified Polyethylene Terephthalate (G-PET) Sheet
Metallized Polyethylene Terephthalate (M-PET) Sheet
Co-extruded Glycol-Modified Polyethylene Terephthalate (GAGPET) Sheet with G-PET / A-PET / G-PET configuration
Co-extruded Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (ARA-PET) Sheet with A-PET / R-PET / A-PETconfiguration
Co-extruded Glycol-Modified Polyethylene Terephthalate (GRGPET) Sheet with G-PET / R-PET / G-PET configuration
UniPET is doing even more on promoting PET for the future of “Packaging” for its safety and environment-friendliness and at the same time focusing on delivering more value to its customers. In this pursuit, UniPET has also introduced one of its own in-house developed products to the market under brand name U-PET.
U-PET is again a material belonging to the thermoplastic polyester family made from terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol through a condensation reaction. Its durability, temperature tolerance and wear-resistance has made it an ideal substitute for PVC.
U-PET sheet is a transparent Co polyester sheet which is exceedingly easy to fabricate and Thermoform. The faster forming cycles combined with the high transparency and high impact strength makes U-PET a cost effective option for saving time, labor and money.
