A Pet Sheet


WHAT ARE APET SHEET ?

APET (Amorphous PET) Sheet is thermoplastic sheet which are produced by the extrusion processing of Polyethylene Terephthalate (APET) copolymer, thermoplastic polyester. APET Sheet has sparkling clarity and gloss and very good mechanical properties and thermoforming characteristics, which make them the ideal material for packaging applications.

APET sheets are clear and colored. These are virgin grade premium quality single layer PET sheets. Applications include general packaging, dairy products, and thermoforming and food contact applications. These sheets are also suitable for different printing techniques like UV, Offset and flexo printing.

We manufacture wide array of PET Sheets that are highly durable and reliable in nature. They have high clarity and are utilized in different industrial applications. Our entire product range is manufactured using quality approved raw components and advanced technologies thereby ensuring its flawlessness. They are as per the set quality standards and guidelines.

Advantages:

The advantages over PVC for blister packaging or HIPS/ GPPS for thermoforming are given below

Blister Packaging

Non toxic and safe for food/ drug Good mechanical strength-downgauging possible Excellent transparency and gloss No stress whitening when flexed Good chemical resistance Good gas and water barrier properties Can be sterilized by gamma radiation Faster cycle times – high productivity Can be pigmented Price competitiveness Faster heat absorption due to higher diffusivity rates (app. 10%) as compared to PVC implying that Pet Sheet will absorb heat faster than other materials.

Thermoforming

Excellent clarity of thermoformed products Better mechanical properties, chemical resistance, impact strength, gas and water barrier properties giving higher shelf life to the packed products. Environment friendly and suitable for recycling No stress whitening when flexed Good weather and UV resistance Easy shaping Higher productivity and lower energy costs due to: – Heating can be done at 10-150C lower than for PS implying a savings in energy cost and also corresponding reduction in cycle time due to lower cooling time. – Faster heat absorption due to higher diffusivity values resulting in lower cycle times. – Improved thermoforming speeds due to higher thermal diffusivity.
