RPET & Tethered cap

Why using PET for your packaging?
PET is a resistant, unbreakable and tamper evident material widely used in food & beverage industry because of its high hygiene standards and possibility to preserve organoleptic and nutritional properties of the products. Material cost is low and technologies available enable you to blow at a really low cost.
Moreover, PET is 100% recyclable and also for this reason the European Union has recently introduced a new regulation to push industry players to move to the use of at least 25% of RPET by 2025 as well to the adoption of thetered cap.
Sustainabilty and Green Packaging are now important topics for PET packaging producers and cannot be ignored, not only from a legal and compliance point of view but also from a consumer perspective.

Switching to RPET

Here at COMPETEK we know that implementing RPET is not a decision a company can take over night. There are a lot of questions that need a proper answer.

We therefore developed an RPET protocol to support our customers addressing all their doubts.
It includes:

  • Preform performance
  • Bottle performance
  • Process
  • Shelf-life
  • Legal compliance

A set of procedures built on different scenarios to give a full support to all our customers.

Tethered cap

Along with RPET, another important change that will help to reduce the impact of plastic bottles in the world is the adoption of the Tethered cap. Specifically, this solution will keep the cap attached to the bottle throughout its lifecycle preventing the release into the environment. We manage the majority of the machines on the market, so we can provide comprehensive solutions for your plant helping you save time and costs. Our Tethered cap service includes:

  • Analysis of the best tethered cap option
  • Optimization of your bottle neck finish to adopt the new cap
  • Evolution of your lines to handle the new bottle

Whenever there’s a change in the existing line, it is important to have the new packaging on the line with the minimum downtime possible, thanks to our advanced experience the implementation of the new packaging will be quick and efficient.
