Bormioli Rocco has recently developed the new PET jars line in response to the ever growing needs of a market asking more and more for plastic packaging. These jars are used in the food sector and can satisfy both manufacturers and consumers as to price, handiness and appearance.They are manufactured through the injection-stretch-and-blow technique and they can be customised with multiple tailor-made colours and special shapes.
But Bormioli Rocco's endeavours do not stop here: as a matter of fact, in the aim of launching into the market even more performing containers, the R&D department has also been developing the PET PASSIVE BARRIER jars. This material enabled to obtain PET bottles with enhanced oxygen-barrier properties while maintaining a good transparency. As a matter of fact, the oxygen-barrier properties compared to those of the standard PET are recorded to be enhanced up to 10 folds. PET PASSIVE BARRIER jars have been targeted at the food market, in particular to fill sauces and dips, since thanks to the barrier properties of this special PET they can ensure a reduced oxygen passage by thus safeguarding the product shelf-life.
Both PET jars and PET PASSIVE BARRIER jars are food grade materials in compliance with European countries and US FDA standards, besides having received the approval by the European Pharmacopoeia Monograph 3.2.2.. They have also passed tests on global migration, thus resulting chemically inert. The perfect product preservation in a food grade and transparent container satisfies and reassures the food industry, which is moving towards a gradual replacement of glass with the more functional PET jars
