PET Basics and Performance
Introduction to Polymers and PET
Various aspects of chemistry and polymer structure and how these can affect performance attributes.
PET Industry Overview, Manufacture and Properties
Part two of the materials series reviews current suppliers and how PET is used to make not just bottles but fibers, filaments and sheet goods.
Polymer to Preform
Part three of the materials series looks at the attributes of bottle grade PET materials and how properties can be altered.
PET Preform to Bottle
Part four of the materials series describes the importance of developing strain-hardened crystals during blow molding to produce bottles with optimum properties.
Designing preforms to place the right amount of material in the correct container location.
Barrier Container Technology
Barrier technologies which increase the performance of rigid plastic containers.
Blow Molding Processing
Different ways to blow PET containers and the steps used to control the process.
How to reheat a preform before blowing it into a bottle and how to reduce variation between blown bottles.
