Polyethylene terephthalate commonly abbreviated PET, PETE is the most common thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in fibers for clothing, containers for liquids and foods, thermoforming for manufacturing, and in combination with glass fiber for engineering resins.
It may also be referred to by the brand name Dacron; in Britain, Terylene; or, in Russia and the former Soviet Union, Lavsan.
The majority of the world’s PET production is for synthetic fibers (in excess of 60%), with bottle production accounting for about 30% of global demand. In the context of textile applications, PET is referred to by its common name, polyester, whereas the acronym PET is generally used in relation to packaging.
PGPCO provide 3 grade of PET: PET-BG, PET-TG and PET-POY
Polyethylene Terephthalate 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. The products has an excellent transparency and gloss, an outstanding gas barrier against oxygen and carbon dioxide, and outstanding toughness and impact strength.
