Crystallized polyethylene terephthalate (CPET) is a variation of standard PET which has been crystallized for heat resistance, rigidity, and toughness. CPET is a translucent or opaque material that can be manufactured in a range of colors to meet your merchandising needs.
CPET trays are the most versatile option of the ready meal concept. They have been designed for convenient Grab – Heat – Eat situations. The temperature range of these trays is -40°C to +220°C which allows for the product to be stored in a deep freeze and placed directly into a hot oven or microwave for cooking.
We usually make white and black colors for CPET. It is worth mentioning that the MOQ for PET sheets is 20,000 kg.
PET (Polyethylene terephthalate ) is a general-purpose thermoplastic in the polyester family. PET plastic is lightweight, strong and impact-resistant. It is often used in food processing machinery due to its low moisture absorption, low thermal expansion, and chemical resistant properties
It has higher strength and stiffness than PBT.
It is very strong and lightweight, so it is easy to transport and efficient.
It is known for its good gas (oxygen, carbon dioxide) and moisture resistance.
It has excellent electrical insulating properties.
PET has a wide operating temperature range from -60 to 130°C.
It also has a higher heat distortion temperature (HDT) than PBT.
It has low air permeability.
PET is suitable for transparent applications when quenched during processing
PET will not break. It is virtually shatterproof, making it a suitable glass replacement in certain applications.
Recyclable and transparent to microwave radiation.
PET is approved by the FDA, Health Canada, EFSA, and other health agencies for safe contact with food and beverages.
Lower impact strength than PBT
Lower moldability than PBT, due its slow crystallization rate
Affected by boiling water
Attacked by alkalis and strong bases
Attacked at high temperatures (>60°C) by ketones, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons and diluted acids and bases Poor burning behavior
Polyethylene Terephthalate is used in several packaging applications as mentioned below:
Because Polyethylene Terephthalate is an excellent water and moisture barrier material, plastic bottles made from PET are widely used for mineral water and carbonated soft drinks
Its high mechanical strength, makes Polyethylene Terephthalate films ideal for use in tape applications
Non-oriented PET sheet can be thermoformed to make packaging trays and blisters
Its chemical inertness, together with other physical properties, has made it particularly suitable for food packaging applications
Other packaging applications include rigid cosmetic jars, microwavable containers, transparent films, etc.
Changzhou Huisu Qinye Plastic Group is committed to continuous research and development in the plastics industry, and now has 4 CPET sheet production lines. We can make different types of CPET sheets such as white and black. We also manufacture CPET food trays. We have 10 automatic blister machines in our factory, and we accept OEM service.
