PET flakes in day-to-day applications

The range of applications of polyethylene terephthalate, briefly PET, is very wide. Every day we have contact with products made entirely or partly of PET. It easy to notice that PET plays an important role in almost all areas of day-to-day life.


PET bottles:
it can be assumed that up to one third of a new PET bottle is made of material recycled from an old PET bottle. Admittedly, this result belongs to the best in the industry, however, market trends indicate a growing share of RPET materials in the production of new packaging.


Textile fibres:
Particular properties such as tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and low moisture absorbing capacity, make PET the most important raw material for manufacturing synthetic fibres. Textiles made of PET are crease resistant, weather resistant and fast-drying, which makes them an excellent choice for manufacturing sports clothing - everyone can make a use of a cosy polar fleece in winter time.


Packing straps:
Perfectly fit for binding loads of variable volume. They feature excellent performance during packing of products stored outdoors, are resistant to high temperatures and UV radiation. Unlike steel straps, polyester (PET) straps do not cause damage to edges of packed goods, do not corrode, do not leave rusty stains and are very cost-effective in use.


Polyester films:
Wide area of PET application. Single and multi-layer films used for manufacturing industrial packages and food product packages.


Polyester resins:
PET in the form of resins is used as a component of paints and lacquers, and when combined with curing agents, it is used for making durable composites on the basis of polyester textiles.


Vascular prostheses:
PET is used in medical applications. Thanks to its good tissue compatibility, PET is used for vascular prostheses employed in the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency.
