Bormioli develop brilliant 100% recycled PET packaging
Environment friendly and exceptionally transparent: this is 100% post-consumer recycled PET packaging by Bormioli Rocco.
The Plastics Division has developed cosmetic bottles made of this low-impact material without sacrificing pack glamour. Recycled PET is successfully employed in the chemical sector and, where permitted by applicable legislation, is also used in the plastic food packaging industry.
Bormioli Rocco’s 100% recycled PET bottles are easily distinguished from similar products thanks to their exceptional transparency. Moreover, a comparison between a Bormioli Rocco recycled PET bottle and a virgin PET bottle reveals equivalent transparency, without any alteration of mechanical properties. This is due to the high grade of purity that is obtained by the meticulous refinement process: manual, physical, visual and chemical treatments.
These outstanding results are achieved thanks to the expertise of Bormioli's Plastics Division, which works closely with a highly qualified supplier capable of producing excellent quality PET.
In the field of plastic cosmetic packaging, recycled PET bottles are the ideal solution for a market driven by a growing demand for “eco-glamour” packaging. Bright colours or tints, chromatic effects and decorations: cosmetic bottles made from recycled PET can be personalised in many ways to create distinctive packs that will entice consumers. Most importantly of course, they are also eco-sustainable.
A number of Bormioli Rocco customers have been using recycled PET bottles for some time, thus benefiting from the experience of Bormioli's Plastics Division in terms of production technologies, accumulated documentation and testing, as well as their expertise in recycling processes. This know- how shines through in the quality and efficiency of their customer service, to the extent that samples can be ordered and delivered with minimum lead time.
Eco-compatible and extremely pure, recycled PET is proof positive of Bormioli Rocco’s commitment to environmental protection. This ongoing commitment includes the research and testing of recyclable materials, bioplastics and biodegradable plastics.
