PET or PETE (polyethylene terephthalate) can also be referred to as polyester. PET has excellent strength, toughness, dimensional stability, clarity and abrasion resistance. PET is rapidly becoming the material of choice due to its ease of recycling and widespread use in the food and beverage industry. Geo supports our partners’ green initiatives and offers rPET with up to 100% post-consumer recyclable content for custom thermoforming applications. PET can be identified by the #1 recycling symbol. PETG (polyethylene terephthalate) has similar properties to PET and is known for its toughness, transparency, versatility and ease of use. The glycol-modified form of PET gives the material better impact resistance and is commonly used in medical applications that require EtO and gamma sterilization. PETG can be used as an alternative to PVC when RF sealing is required. PETG is also identified by the #1 recycling symbol. We would be happy to help guide you through this decision process.
