In 2013 PET Technologies laboratory for PET bottles mechanical testing started its operation. It allows us PET bottles design development according to given mechanical characteristics and guarantees successful realization of projects on preform weight reduction.
Recently we have performed laboratory and industrial tests for Econia LLC FIE, one of the leading manufacturers of drinking water at Ukrainian market (Malyatko TM, Akvulya TM, Tean Teem TM, Chaykava TM, Chistyi Kluch TM). Test results, obtained after PET bottles 5,0 l (78 g) and 6,0 l (85 g) investigation, showed perfect data as for top load test, general bottle strength and material distribution over container body.
Nowadays we continue laboratory experiments and will inform you about new results in lightweight PET bottles design.
