Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate (APET)
Commonly used for packaging applications due to its superior clarity and excellent barrier properties.
Also widely used to make tray or blister packages.
Glycol Modified Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET-G)
PET-G is noted for its thermoforming versatility, its impact resistance(toughness), and its retention of optical clarity after bending or forming.
These properties allow PET-G to be widely used in packaging applications.
Other application include point-of-sales retail displays, signs, drinks bottles and smart cards.
PET-G, APET, PET-G (GAG)
GAG is a three(3)-layer extrusion sheet, whereby the top and bottom layers consist of PET-G sheets, while the middle layer consists of APET sheet.
It retains the characteristics of, and is used in the same application markets as, PET-G extrusion sheets.
High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS)
Has much better impact resistance than normal polystyrene.
Commonly used for demanding end-user applications in the food, dairy and medical packaging industries.
Its properties ensure compliance with strict food and medical regulations.
Chemically resistant and almost completely impervious to water.
Examples of applications include storage bins, bottles and dishwasher safe food containers.
