AQUA is a copolymer of PET (Polyethylene-Terephthalate), delivered in resin pellets. It is suitable for the stretch blow Moulding process in one or two stages.
This resin has been specially conceived for still water packaging. It has the required mechanical strength, neutral colour tone, high transparency and makes it possible to obtain excellent organoleptic properties in the conversion process which this kind of package demands. It can also be used for other different non-carbonated beverage packaging.
