General Information

PET bottle grade chips (highly viscous) is a condensation polymer produced by a continuous melt-phase polymerization process followed by a solid state polymerization process, with an I.V of 0.75 – 0.85.


PET has excellent transparency and gloss, outstanding gas barrier against oxygen and carbon dioxide, and outstanding toughness and impact strength.

Typical applications

Packaging of drinking water, flavoring and candy containers, packaging of solid foods and edible oils.
