Equipolymers unveils new PET resin
Milan, November 21, 2013
Equipolymers, a leading polyethylene terephthalate (PET) manufacturer, has unveiled its new Bisneinex PET resin.
It is an innovative Bisphenol-A free solution designed for large bottling applications including the home and office delivery (HOD) water bottle market, said a statement.
Bisneinex offers converters a new, cost effective solution with no impact on raw material cost and potential improved processing cost conditions due to lower energy usage for large container sizes including five gallon and 20 l applications.
The resin will be available in limited quantities by the end of the year, with expanded production targeted for 2014.
Bisneinex is optimised specifically for injection molding (IM) and stretch blow molding (SBM) processes (two stage process) as well as for injection stretch blow molding (ISBM) (one stage process) production of large volume containers (more than 3 l), which require thick-walled pre-forms and thus reduced crystallisation rate.
Relative to standard PET this novel resin, currently in final application testing, provides a number of improved process and bottle performance benefits including large processing window due to reduced recrystallisation behaviour, bottle thermal stability (low shrinkage), exceptional colour in the final application and improved drop test and top load performance.
“The newest addition to our portfolio demonstrates our commitment to delivering the innovative PET solutions that our customers demand. It is a truly unique material that helps our customers move from polycarbonate to PET in a cost effective manner while meeting regulatory and consumer demands for a BPA-free plastic,” said Naser Al Dousari, chief operating officer. - TradeArabia News Service
