A distinctive bottle or jar for everyone...
Taking the customer’s perspective
PET Power supplies bottles and jars and also provides appropriate lids and decorations. The customer has to be able to present his brand as well as possible. The product must draw attention on the shelf and appeal to the consumer. Functionality and quality must be optimal, at acceptable costs for transport and storage. PET Power takes the customer’s perspective and gets involved.


Specialisations
The company specialises in packaging for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and foodstuffs industries. Experts in these areas – category managers and representatives in the various countries – are there to assist the customer. At the same time, more and more sectors are discovering the possibilities. PET Power has provided solutions for toys, chemicals and household articles and is open to new developments and applications.

Large and small production runs
PET Power works constantly at ways of being able to meet the customer’s needs as flexibly as possible. The customer after all needs a small production run one day and a large one the next. Unannounced demand for a new supply run can arise from one day to the next. PET Power understands this and is ready to adapt within reasonable limits. The machine platform facilitates variation in production runs. Moreover, sufficient storage space is available. In addition, good contacts with the transport industry are maintained, which facilitates the provision of special services, such as urgent despatches.

A flexible set-up is needed, because the market is at times fickle and unpredictable. Customer demand can depend on the weather, trends, fads, outbreaks of disease and the course of large sporting events. The customer aims to anticipate these. PET Power is the right place for smaller production runs and special colours, for example for a marketing campaign, at a price that is in line with the market. For larger productions runs, PET Power manufactures standard products that are directly available for sale.

Stock control
PET Power does everything in its power, in consultation with the customer, to achieve the highest efficiency here. For example, determining and maintaining the correct level of stocks is important. Production continues ‘24/7’ to ensure availability in good time. This takes place in intensive cooperation with associate companies at home and abroad.

Range
Since its launch in 1995, PET Power has built up an extremely large range of bottles and jars. The range is unique in Europe. The customer can rely on quality, stability in the materials used and flexible processing and delivery - and all of this over a huge range of shapes. There are more than 1,200 types, and every month new ones are added. After all, shapes can be manufactured quickly and with limited investment: PET Power constantly combines the available preforms, where neck dimensions and weight are predetermined, with new blow moulds.

Products

  • ROUND AND ROBUST, BUT OH SO ELEGANT…

    By popular demand, we’re proud to present the newest addition to our standard PET range. We’re adding a robust 1 litre jar to our already extensive Straight Cylindrical Jar range. Despite its 14 cm height and 10 cm diameter, the 1 litre jar still retains its elegance. The characteristic sleek lines ensure that a whole variety of products will come into their own. We produce the 1 litre Straight Cylindrical Jar with the much-used 100SP400 neck finish, which can easily be combined with a multitude of standard closures.

    Popular on shop shelves
    You increasingly see Straight Cylindrical Jars in the shops, and with good reason! The round, cylindrical shape means that the model is suited to a whole range of product groups. Think of, for instance, skin-care products, sweets, herbs & spices and, with increasing frequency, also ice-cream. This elegant model is easy to fill and decorate. Curious about the possibilities for your products? Then please contact us through your local sales representative or e-mail us at info@petpower.eu.

  • TAKE A FIRM HOLD OF IT!

    This certainly applies to our two latest additions. We are expanding our range of ‘Grip’ jars with this pair of Big Guys. The jars have a capacity of 2.0 and 2.5 litres, respectively. The characteristic ‘Square Grip’ ensures that the user can hold the jars easily and at the same time it gives the jar its striking appearance. Both jars come with the popular 100SP400 neck finish. This makes them easy to combine with a multitude of different closures.
    A welcome guest in the kitchen, but with many more possibilities!
    Grip jars are often used in professional kitchens, as they are so easy to use. We are now also seeing a trend towards consumer use, because more and more professional-level cooking is being done at home. A high-quality, robust and handsome jar is never out of place in the kitchen! These jars are also perfect for other product types such as animal feed, confectionery, nuts and powdered products. With the right decoration you can turn this user-friendly jar into an eye-catching container. PET Power specialists are pleased to help you select the right decoration.

  • NOT JUST THICKER, BUT ALSO…

    Our latest addition really sets itself apart in many ways from the other PET bottles and containers. We produce the standard available Thickwall 50 ml Jar in multiple materials. Your wishes, the product and the quantity determine the most suitable type of plastic. In consultation with you, we’ll opt for Tritan™, a different co-polyester or thick-walled PET. This is of course also possible for your customer-specific models with different volumes.

    What exactly is the purpose of thicker containers?
    When we thicken the walls of plastic packaging, we create the same experience as with glass packaging. With the extra benefit that the jars are unbreakable. So you’ll never have glass splinters on your filling lines, or in the bathroom! Because of their high-quality appearance, these ‘Thickwall Jars’ are particularly suited for the more luxurious personal care brands.

    Cap and decoration options
    The Thickwall Jar comes with a perfectly matching closure. The sleek closure fits seamlessly with the neck of the jar, and together they form a superb whole. The height of the cap can be adjusted, in consultation. Thick-walled containers are decorated with the same techniques, regardless of the choice for Tritan™, thick-walled PET or a different co-polyester.

  • A SMALL DETAIL WITH A BIG EFFECT …

    Often the smallest modifications make the biggest difference! We are now expanding our largest standard family, the Tall Boston Round, with a special 500ml version with a 28SP410 neck finish. Thanks to this small modification, it connects perfectly with a lot of standard pumps and atomisers. Are you thinking about introducing a complete product line with the same packaging shape? Then this new 500ml version makes the choice a lot easier! The Tall Boston Round family, as everybody knows, is easy to decorate and colour. Curious to find out more about all the available colours and decorating options?
    How do you use it?
    You come across the Tall Boston family in shops everywhere and it has almost unprecedented application possibilities. We are also creating incredible opportunities with this new neck finish. The range of combinations with pumps and atomisers is creating new possibilities, particularly in the Home Care market.

  • TWO-STAGE PET BOTTLES: A GREAT ALTERNATIVE FOR…

    The packaging world is a perfect example of an industry that continues to develop. Where formerly products made using the two-stage process were for mass production (E.g. in the soft drinks sector) and single-stage production was for annual volumes up to 10 million units, both production technologies now overlap each other more often. In principle, both technologies are similar, only the origination of the preform differs. The difference in the technologies is explained by the terminology.
    In single-stage, the injection stretch and blowmoulding process takes place within one machine whereas in the two-stage process, the preform production is done by one machine and the blow¬moulding in another machine. The scale benefits of preform production can give you a significant advantage in developing a new two-stage PET bottle or jar. By using mass produced preforms you only have to invest in a small blowmould to make your own bespoke model. Our PET specialists are happy to advise which method offers the most benefit for your packaging needs.

  • NEW, YET SO FAMILIAR!

    NEW, YET SO FAMILIAR!
    Perhaps you are already aware that PET Power is expanding its horizons. Our motivation is to offer total solutions for the packaging issues of our business contacts. PET remains an important part of our product range, but in some cases different materials will meet the need that bit better. Tritan is an excellent example. This co-polyester is manufactured in essentially the same manner, has many of the same characteristics, but is particularly suitable for repeated use (e.g. machine washable). To avoid confusing our clients, we offer these products under a new brand name: ZENGO.

  • BOSTON SQUARE 250/500 AND 1000 ML

    A unique addition to the best-known range of PET bottles in the packaging industry! The Boston Round has a highly recognisable cylindrical style and it has been used for many different product types for years. Our designers managed to design a perfect combination of the well-known round shape with a square base. The combination is a beautiful design with a distinctive look and feel. There are three types of bottles in the PET range: a 250 ml, a 500 ml and a litre bottle. All models have a standard SP410 neck finish, making them easy to combine with all kinds of standard closures and dosing caps.

    Recognisable, but still distinct!
    The Boston Square range of PET bottles is an attractive addition to the existing Boston Round range. The transition from round to square gives this unique model ideal options for presentation. Like all the other PET packaging products, the Boston Square can be produced in every colour and the decoration choices are endless. You can easily choose a label, print or sleeve. PET Power’s decoration specialists are happy to help you make the best choice.

  • SQUARE GRIPS: HEFTY CHARACTERS!

    We are expanding our range with two special Square Grip jars. Sizeable jars, that provide a solid grip. The jars have a capacity of 2 and 2.5 litres respectively. The Square Grip literally offers users a grip and gives the jar its distinctive look. Both jars come with the common 100SP400 neck finish. This allows the jars to be effortlessly combined with a great variety of closures.

    Square Grips in Practice
    Square Grip jars are often used in professional kitchens, as they are so easy to use. Also, more and more consumers are using them, mostly because of the popularity of amateur participation in cooking. A high-quality, robust and beautiful jar is never out of place in the kitchen! The Square Grip jars are also perfect for other product types such as animal feed, confectionery, nuts and other powdered products. And with the right decoration you can turn this user-friendly jar into an eye-catching product. PET Power specialists will be happy to help you select the right product.

  • ICE, ICE BABY! PET POWER EXPANDS POPULAR RANGE WITH NEW CAPACITY

    Pet Power has yet again extended its wide range of standard PET packaging with an instant classic: Straight Cylindrical 450ml. This PET-jar model has been widely used for decades for personal care and food products and now there’s a new product type: ice creams. The sleek lines on the Straight Cylindrical Range lend themselves perfectly for filling and completely scooping out delicious ice cream products.

    The four (63/70/89 and 100 mm) different types within the Straight Cylindrical range amount to 23 different PET-jars. Our new addition has a 450ml capacity and an 89mm diameter neck.

    Decoration options

    The decoration options for the Straight Cylindrical Range are endless. Think of colouring, labelling, sleeving, quoting or printing. PET Power’s decoration specialists will be happy to advise you in your quest for the perfect total packaging. These techniques provide a clearly visible product, as well having as a mouth-watering effect on the consumer.

  • ASTERIA OVAL 300 ML

    The Asteria Oval is one of the latest standards to be added to our ample range of PET bottles and jars. Available as standard but far from a standard design. The model is characterised by a combination of different lines. The most striking aspect of the Asteria Oval is its widely shaped shoulders, which gives the model a larger front panel that makes it naturally more noticeable on shop shelves. The model has a capacity of 300 ml and is made with the standard widely used 28SP410 neck finish. This enables the Asteria to be combined with a wide range of closures and pumps.

    Decoration and applications
    The model is suitable for all types of decoration*. The large presentation surface can easily carry an attractive label, while a screen-print is also relatively easy to apply. We would be happy to discuss the different options with you and we can also take care of the entire process.

  • HOW BEAUTIFUL CAN A BOTTLE GET?

    When we say the Kronos Square 300ml has its “own shape”, we’re not exaggerating. This majestic model has four equal sides, but the diamond shape provides a totally different experience. Our designer has created a beautiful article with varying horizontal and vertical lines. The Kronos Square is finished with the widely used 24SP410 neck finish. This makes it easy to combine the bottle with a lot of standard closures, sprays or pumps. The model is a joy for every packaging designer because it’s so easy to decorate.

    We all want to stand out on the shop shelf…
    A beautiful model or beautiful decoration is certainly eye-catching, but also give some thought to the right combination of height and width. The Kronos Square has it all! With a height of almost 18cm, this beautiful model stands head and shoulders above all other 300ml bottles. The diamond shape creates more width, and a striking decoration nicely finishes it off. PET Power specialists are pleased to help you with your selection of the right decoration.

  • HAPPY EASTER AND …

    Surprise one another with a stunningly filled egg! We’ve added a completely new shape to our standard ‘Funny Shapes’ range: the Egg Shell Jar 300ml. Perfect for Easter, filled with all kinds of goodies; the Egg Shell Jar gets the party started for Easter Breakfast. The 300ml is standard, but the size of the Egg Shell Jar can be easily adjusted. PET Power will provide you with matching closures, available in all the colours of the rainbow. Curious to find out more about all the available colours and decorating options?

    It’s a piece of (Easter) cake!!
    This PET model lends itself perfectly to all the colours of the rainbow. Multiple happy eggs, side by side in secondary packaging, appeals to all consumers. The Egg Shell Jar can also easily be covered with creative sleeves, so it looks as if the eggs have each been decorated by different children.

    https://www.petpower.eu/en/spotlight-egg-shell-jar...

  • DO YOU ALSO THINK IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL?

    Square, robust lines are being increasingly chosen to stand out more on the shop shelves. The different shape immediately catches the eye between all the round bottles. PET Power has now expanded the Square family with a nice 400ml model. This volume is particularly special because of the height – width ratio. These perfect proportions really gives this new model its own unique look on the shop shelves. The standard 28SP410 neck finish offers many combination options with the most commonly used pumps and closures.

    We all want to stand out on the shelf…
    The beautiful proportions of this model are themselves a decoration. Sometimes the square bottle decoration requires a little more preparation, but this is more than offset by the endless decoration possibilities. The Square Bottle has 4 equal label faces and all options for eye-catching sleeves. And what about a coloured bottle with striking print? PET Power specialists are pleased to help you with your selection of the right decoration.

  • DROPLET SQUEEZERS: SQUEEZABLE AND HANDY FOR SERVING!

    Our Droplet Squeezers fit perfectly in the hand and are easy to squeeze and manipulate due to their oval shape. This is why this model is widely used for all kinds of foodstuffs such as honey, dressings and sandwich spreads. PET Power offers the models available in its standard range with two different neck finishes: 38SP400 and 31 Snap. It’s this second family that we’re now expanding with a 5th family member: the 510ml version.
    Quite a sight!

    With their oval shape, broader front and extensive decoration possibilities, the Droplet Squeezers really stand out on shop shelves. This is evident from the wide variety of applications. The unique form of the Droplet Squeezers means that they’re easily enhanced with labels, sleeves or prints and can be produced in all colours of the rainbow. The unique 31 Snap neck ensures that the closure fits firmly and is not easily removed. In this, the bottle lends itself perfectly to combination with the normally available serving solutions.

  • Coloured Aluminium caps: ‘Just a bit different’

    Fasteners are now indispensable as a packaging solution. The very attractive, high quality appearance makes this type of closure much loved by many brand managers. The minimal colour variations were sometimes a problem, but that has now been solved. From now on PET Power can offer you all different sizes in nearly every colour of the rainbow. This makes it possible to perfectly coordinate the cap with the other packaging elements and to make it a beautifully integrated item. We have developed a special box for you containing trendy colour combinations. If you are interested in our new coloured aluminium caps, then please contact info@petpower.eu, or contact your local sales representative. What else is possible? The most commonly used aluminium caps have a ribbed side and a retractable edge on the underside in addition to the typical silver grey colour. All these features can also be customised if you wish. We would be happy to tell you about the options and their delivery conditions without any obligation. Decoration options: Besides the new colouring options, you can also have all aluminium caps with printing or embossing. This creates a clearly distinctive character compared with similar products. If you would like to receive more information about all our decoration options, please e-mail our decoration specialist, Annette Kraan or ask your local sales representative directly.

  • New decorative cap for various applications

    Responding to market trends, the PET Power creative team has again developed an innovative new cap with a decorative hook that can be used for a variety of fun applications. The hook at the top of the cap is ideal for applying a label by means of, for example, a colourful ribbon or cord. With an appropriate bottle design you can hang it up. Whether you use it for the holidays or any special event, it will draw enormous attention. The possibilities are endless and the ‘added value’ of this hook will hopefully tickle your creativity. For more information please contact info@petpower.eu or your local sales representatives. Applications: The cap is produced with the commonly used 24 SP410 neck finish, which makes it fit many bottles from the already wide PET Power range. The product is available in three colours, but the cap can be produced in any colour. What else is possible? We initially produced only the hook cap for the 24SP410 neck. Naturally, we always enjoy the opportunity to work with you on other developments. This can include hook solutions for other diameters or totally different applications that you have thought of using this example.

  • Inspiring packaging for our holidays

    For many people the holidays symbolise socialising and fun moments with your family and friends. Surprising each other with special gifts has become an important part of that. PET Power has added new standard shapes to its growing range of ‘funny shapes’ specifically for these occasions. We are pleased to present to you the Rabbit 300ml and the Pumpkin 510ml. Both models have a 63 RTS neck finish. The unusual aspect of the Rabbit is that it is upside down and so stands on its cap on the shelf. This immediately makes it distinctive among the other party items. The Pumpkin has the vertical squash lines and the characteristic facial patterns at the front. Application options Just like the other ‘funny shapes’, the Rabbit and Pumpkin have many application options. The most obvious product groups are those like confectionery and other foods, but also toys and other products associated with holidays can be packaged in these ‘funny shapes’. Decoration options Decorating these types of models requires special attention. Of course, both models are available in every colour and you can determine the degree of transparency. You can always apply additional touches by stippling, a special printing technique. With the Pumpkin, for example, making the eyes, nose and mouth black. If you would like to receive more information about all our decoration options, please contact our decoration specialist, Annette Kraan or ask your local sales representative directly.

  • White paper: ‘Bottom Shape Possibilities’

    PET Power has carried out a study on possibilities for new shapes. We are looking for new avenues in the ISBM production process for the bottoms of jars and bottles in collaboration with a supplier of production machines. The results of this study give us a better idea of how we can create hollow spaces in the base, so the bottle or jar can be stacked on the shelf, for example. Another option could be that there would be a gimmick or usable object packed in the base. It is precisely these kinds of other possibilities that we want to share with you in a white paper and possibly elaborate further...

    PET Power has been the specialist in PET bottles and jars for years. These are manufactured by means of a so-called ‘single stage ISBM’ production process (from granulate to finished product in a single machine by means of Injection, Stretching and Blow Moulding). Much more appears to be possible with this technique than assumed so far. Read all about this study in the whitepaper ‘Bottom Shape Possibilities’. Download.

    Application options:
    There are already several products on the market that have a recessed base. These are often used to stack products or to combine with similar products. These can be personal care products (shampoos in combination with a conditioner). Furthermore, you can think of promotional products where a new product is presented in smaller attached packaging. There are many more possibilities that we would like to explore further by means of a brainstorming session.

    What now?
    If, like us, you have become enthusiastic about this new production technique and its undiscovered potential, please contact Raoul Gabriëls or your local sales representative.

  • A known shape with a new neck adjustment

    For years, the Dutch Oval range has been one of the most popular lines in the PET Power standard range. The existing ranges are offered with the widely used SP410 and SP415 neck finishes. The latest trend in many markets is that our customers are asking for a tamper-evident feature. The Mercury Oval Snap has this feature. We now offer you a 125ml and a 200ml bottle as standard. The shape is identical to the well known Dutch Oval range, but has a snap-neck finish. The standard top fits perfectly on this type of neck and has a built-in Tamper Evident solution.

    Applications

    This model of PET bottle is used in many different markets. Due to its oval shape, this malleable model has a relatively large amount of facing on the shelf. It is precisely this feature that makes the product ideal for all kinds of food and personal care applications. The stately lines also give the final product a high quality appearance, especially for OTC products.

    Decorating options

    Experience has shown that there are almost no restrictions as regards decorating this particular shape. The bottles can be produced in any colour, and it is relatively easy to add a label, sleeve or screen print on both coloured and clear bottles. If you would like to receive more information about the various options, please email our decoration specialist, Annette Kraan, at ak@petower.eu, or contact your local sales representative directly.

    http://www.petpower.eu/en/news-events/newsletter/1...

  • Flacco Round: different, unique and very striking

    That the two Flacco Round bottles are different and unique is undeniable. Their striking appearance is in many respects what separates them from the other models in our wide range of standard PET Power bottles and jars. The model is characterised by its wide round neck with downward taper. The Flacco can be ordered with or without drops at the top of the round neck. The Flacco range currently consists of a 300ml and a 500ml bottle, both with a standard SP410 neck finish. As a result, the bottle can be endlessly combined with all kinds of standard pumps and other closures.

    Applications

    Hand soap packaging is one especially notable application. With a perfectly matching pump, you create a real eye-catcher on the shelf and in the kitchen. Obviously, many more applications are possible and you can allow your imagination a free reign.

    Decoration

    The model is easier to decorate without drops at the top than with them, but the model itself also requires extra attention because of the cylindrical shape (the extra effort is well worthwhile). You create the best effect with clear colouring and a beautiful matching label or a screen print on the bottom of the bottle. To obtain free samples including matching closure or pump, send an e-mail to info@petpower.eu or contact your local sales representative directly.

  • Sphere family: nothing is more perfect than the sphere

    Did you know that of all the geometric shapes, the sphere has the most favourable ratio between surface and capacity? In other words: the smallest surface with the greatest capacity. But this is not the only reason that the Sphere family is such a striking sight in our collection of bottles. Liquid in a spherical form refracts light in a remarkable manner. The sphere acts as a magnifying glass so that what we see through the bottle is magnified, including any printing on the bottle.

    It is these properties that make the Sphere such unique packaging for liquids. Whether it is a cosmetics product or a fine olive oil, the Sphere creates magic, which is why we have named this the model of the month.

  • Transparent cap is an eye-catcher

    New in PET Power's line of closures is an aluminium cap featuring a clear plastic window. If you want your product to be seen, this cap is sure to attract attention - not only on the shelf, but also with the consumer at home. This new packaging concept offers a wide range of useful applications, because the cap enables you to see from above what is in the jar and how much there is. This is similar to, for example, a row of spice jars in the kitchen drawer. But surprising results can also be achieved for sweet packaging.

    Details:

    Neck dimensions: 63 SP400, 70 SP400 and 89 SP400
    Colour: silver-coloured aluminium with clear window
    Mainly suitable for dry substances, because with liquids the required seal is visible through the window.

  • Phoebe: slim and elegant

    The new Phoebe Round model takes its name from a Greek goddess. It is a stylish shape, slim and elegant. This unique design is very contemporary and makes a particular impact when used in cosmetic applications. The elongated shape lends itself very well to the use of pumps or sprays, but it is also an impressive sight as a squeezable shampoo bottle.

    The Phoebe Round family includes the sizes 360 ml, 180 ml, 100 ml and 60 ml.

    http://www.petpower.eu/en/news-events/newsletter/1...

  • Conical family expanded to include a 500ml model

    We are delighted to announce a new member of the popular Conical family. This family has formed part of PET Power's standard range for over five years and now also includes a 500 ml version. The name of the family speaks for itself. The conical shape ensures that the base has a relatively large surface area. The model gradually tapers off towards the neck, which gives the bottle an attractive stately look and ensures that it stands out on the shelf. The bottle is produced with the standard and frequently used 28SP410 neck and can therefore easily be combined with a wide range of closures and pumps. Why not request samples of this family and the matching closure via info@petpower.eu, free of obligation, and let yourself be charmed by the elegance of this model?
    Fields of applicationThe conical shape and SP410 neck finish make this bottle suitable for many different products. The bottle can be used for shower gel, hand soap and cosmetic products, for example, but a suitable dispensing closure would also make it perfect for luxury food products such as dressings and sauces. Why not request samples (free of obligation) and experiment with your product? You may well find that this model offers the perfect degree of distinctive capacity for your own product group.
    Decoration optionsThe rounded, conical shape can easily be decorated with any decoration technique of your choice. The base leads into the neck so gradually that this model is also highly suitable for use with a label. You can select any decoration option you like and we will be delighted to help you choose the right technique. Ask your local sales contact or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan for a no-obligation discussion about the various options.

  • Stand out with the new Auxo Round

    The 330 ml Auxo Round is sure to stand out from other products as a result of its light-hearted curves. It is precisely these curves which generate many different associations among consumers when they hold the bottle for the first time. This makes it possible for you to respond accordingly with the perfect combination of product and packaging. The Auxo Round is produced with a standard and frequently used 28SP410 neck, allowing you to combine the bottle with many different closures. Why not request samples of both the bottle and the closure via info@petpower.eu
    Fields of applicationThis model has many different fields of application. This new bottle would be highly suitable for any product which requires an upbeat, light-hearted, friendly and slightly quirky image. We have demonstrated three examples above, but the possibilities are endless. PET Power wishes to help you make the right choice, for example by visualising your product in a ‘Your brand’ variant. Contact your local sales representative and they will tell you exactly which services PET Power can assist you with.
    Decoration optionsThe round shapes of this model require a little attention when choosing an appropriate decoration technique. The bottle can of course be produced in any colour of the rainbow. This type of bottle is highly suitable for two decoration techniques in particular: sleeves and screen printing! A perfectly fitting sleeve allows you to accentuate the round shapes and enhance the distinctive nature of this model. Ask your local sales contact or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan for a no-obligation discussion about the various options.

  • Refill options for electronic cigarettes

    Electronic cigarettes are experiencing a surge in popularity. More and more smokers are changing over to this option and many European countries already have specialist shops to serve this rapidly growing market. The electronic cigarette, which is a one-off purchase, is topped up with refill packs. PET Power is responding to this growing demand by introducing a complete packaging set in three volumes (10 ml, 15 ml and 20 ml). The set consists of a small PET bottle, a 12 mm TE/CRC closure (Tamper Evident/Child Resistant Closure) and a dispensing cap. All three items have been subjected to comprehensive tests. They satisfy all the quality requirements for this specific market.

    ModelsThe three standard models are round in shape and are made from standard PET material. If required, they can also be made from 100% recycled material. The perfectly fitting cap can be ordered in white and black as standard (or in any colour of your choice subject to a minimum order quantity of 250,000 items). The external cap can also be customised to make the product stand out more on the shelf. The dispensing cap is transparent.
    All three standard models can be ordered with a minimum order quantity of 100,000 units. This product is not kept in stock and in most cases, relatively large orders will be required. We would be delighted to work with you to develop the perfect packaging for your product. PET Power is familiar with all the specific legislation in this field and would like to explore the best options with you. Please contact us via info@petpower.eu free of obligation, or contact your local sales representative directly.

  • Redesign of an existing bottle

    By working closely with a client, PET Power has redesigned an existing model. The client asked us to transform the existing 250 ml Tumble Bottle into a more streamlined 300 ml bottle and the result speaks for itself. The new model still has the light-hearted shape but offers sleeker lines into the neck. This new model is also produced with the standard and frequently used 28SP410 neck finish and can therefore easily be combined with many standard closures and pumps. For further information, please contact your local sales representative or email info@petpower.eu

    Applications
    The light-hearted, distinctive shape lends itself to virtually any application. For example, the model can be used for numerous cosmetic products (such as hand soap, baby shampoo or body lotion). With a little creativity, however, this model could also offer a striking solution for various food products.

    Decoration options
    The shape is already attractive in itself, but will be shown to even better advantage with a little decoration. The model can obviously be produced in all the colours of the rainbow and also lends itself extremely well to an attractive screen print. In our opinion, this model looks best when a close-fitting sleeve is used to accentuate the contours of the bottle. If you would like more information about all the decoration options, please contact our specialist Annette Kraan.

  • Create your own customised closure

    Standard packaging with a unique look is now possible for a relatively low investment. Together with an innovative partner, PET Power has developed the Mix&Match concept for our standard 70SP400 and 89SP400 neck finishes. The unique feature of this innovative concept is the fact that you can now lend your own ‘look & feel’ to a standard closure. In principle, you can give free reign to your imagination and many different models are possible.

    Examples
    To give you a better idea of what is possible within the Mix&Match concept, PET Power has produced several alternatives. For example, for our standard 89SP400 closure we now also offer a higher variant, a dome variant, a variant with a matt recessed label surface and a variant with a gloss protruding label surface. In addition, we have given a 70SP400 closure a logo and all these variations have been produced in various colours. These variations can therefore be combined with each other and also tailored to your requirements.

    How does it work?
    If you are interested in this unique concept, please contact Annette Kraan or your local sales representative. They will discuss your requirements and the feasibility of your plans with you. We will then impress you with several attractive designs to ensure that the customised closure makes a positive contribution to your product.

  • Cylindrical and sleek, yet different

    The latest addition to our wide range of standard PET models is the Atlas Round. This new family consists of the volumes 30 ml, 40 ml and 50 ml. Just like the Sharp Cylindrical, this range offers small volumes and a round, cylindrical shape. However, it is a little taller and narrower. As a result, the biggest difference from the Sharp Cylindrical range is the fact that the neck of the bottle is at a steeper angle. All three models are produced with the standard and frequently used 20SP410 neck finish, making them easy to combine with numerous closures and pumps. Free samples of both the bottles and caps can be requested, entirely free of obligation, via info@petpower.eu or from your local sales representative.

    Applications
    The neutral, cylindrical shape is suitable for all kinds of products. Because of the standard neck finish, the bottles can easily be combined with all kinds of metal and plastic closures. As a result of the small volumes, these models are extremely suitable for use as sample bottles, miniatures and other promotional products. PET Power can also supply the bottles with a decoration or help you to design one.

    Decoration
    It would be hard to find a bottle which is easier to decorate. Both labels and sleeves are easy to apply and even a screen print is no problem. The most attractive effect will be obtained by finding the perfect cap which ties in seamlessly with the bottle. PET Power will be happy to help you find the perfect combination.

  • Increasing demand for sterile media bottles

    Over the past year, here at PET Power we have seen an increasing demand for sterile media bottles. With its clean room, PET Power is in the perfect position to satisfy this demand, where we have two ranges with different shapes. The Square Media range offers volumes of 125 ml, 500 ml and 1000 ml and the Round Media range is available in volumes of 125 ml, 600 ml and 1100 ml. Both ranges are combined with a standard 43 mm leakproof closure. In addition, PET Power can also help you with sterilising the bottles (including the ISO 11137 testing) by means of gamma radiation. The square bottle allows for the optimal filling of racks in small conditioned spaces. By contrast, the round bottle lends itself more easily to automatic labelling. Free samples of both the bottles and the matching caps can be requested, entirely free of obligation, via info@petpower.eu or from your local sales representative.

    Benefits of PET
    PET offers many benefits as a packaging material for these specific applications. Apart from the weight savings and the unbreakable nature of PET, the bottles are also resistant to temperatures as low as -20C° and are therefore suitable for cold stores. The sterile bottles are often used in microbiological laboratories for cell cultures and in-vitro diagnostic applications. Other clients also use the bottles unsterilised because of the fill lines on the outside of the bottle.

    Different production and packaging methods
    Both ranges are produced in our clean room. If the client wishes, the bottles can later be packaged as a brick pack and provided with several layers of film. This is required for the sterile filling of the bottles. Two pallet boxes will be stacked full of these brick packs and radiated as a unit in order to sterilise the products. However, the client decides which of these extra steps to purchase. If you would like to find out more about our various products and services, please send an email to info@petpower.eu or contact your local sales representative.

  • Well-known model, now also with tamper evidence

    PET Power is expanding the existing, popular Boston Round family to include a new standard neck finish. In addition to the well-known SP410 and 415 designs, we are now also offering this family with a snap neck finish. The name of this new family is Boston Snap, and it comes in three different volumes: 500 ml, 250 ml and 100 ml. The specific snap expansion has mainly been developed for products which require a tamper-evident closure. PET Power has developed a matching flip-top cap with a tamper-evident tab. This tab must be removed by the first user, who can therefore be sure that the product has not been opened before. You can request samples of this family and matching caps from your local sales representative or via info@petpower.eu.

    Fields of application

    Because of its neutral, round shape, the Boston family is used for several different types of products. The new snap neck finish means that the family is now also suitable for cosmetic and pharmaceutical products for which tamper evidence is required.

    Decoration options

    The neutral, round shape is highly suitable for all kinds of decoration techniques. Both the bottle and the matching closure are available in any colour. The coloured bottles can easily be printed, allowing you to create an attractive and distinctive finished product. The decoration options for the Boston Round family also include sleeves or labels. PET Power will be happy to help you find the best solution. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan for a no-obligation discussion about the various options.

  • Discover the possibilities of PET in the sports arena

    Over the past months, we have already demonstrated several possibilities in the shape of cars and animals. PET Power is very pleased with all the innovative and creative projects which you have come up with after reading these newsletters. For this reason, we have added two more new and appealing standard models to our range: Foot Ball 1000 ml and Tennis Ball 500 ml. With these two models, we also wish to demonstrate just what can be achieved with PET. Remember that you are not restricted to these shapes or volumes. Both models are produced with a 63 RTS neck finish. Working on the basis of this 63 RTS neck, we can draw and produce virtually any desired shape. We would very much like to expand our range of sports-related designs, or develop new ideas, together with you. If you are interested, please contact your local sales representative or send an email to info@petpower.eu.

    Fields of application

    Both models have a very recognisable shape and will already evoke specific emotions in many sports lovers. These types of packaging are highly suitable for promotional campaigns by sports clubs, for example. In addition, products with a clear link to a specific sport really catch the eye if this is already evident from the shape of the packaging. The jars can be filled with sweets or other food products, but plenty of opportunities also exist for the toy sector. We will be happy to think along with you about the various options!

    Decoration options

    The familiar shape is decorative in itself and will already make sure that the product stands out on the shelf. Both models can easily be provided with a sleeve and can therefore be decorated in any desired club colours. An attractive result can also be obtained through a combination of coloured PET and screen printing. This allows you to determine how far you want to go and with which colour combinations. Both models can also be labelled using lid labels or attached labels. PET Power will be happy to help you find the best solution. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan about the various options.

  • Taller flapper cap model with more ‘size impression’

    PET Power is expanding its standard range of closures to include a functional flapper cap for two 63 mm PET jars. This specific flapper cap stands out from the other standard flapper caps because of its height. The taller side gives the cap an improved ‘size impression’. The flapper cap also has all the familiar features. The two flaps at the top cover a dispensing opening and perforations for sprinkling the product within the jar. The cap can be supplied with or without an Induction Heat Seal (IHS) or Pressure Sensitive (PS) liner. The cap is produced with the common 63SP400 neck type, but the different height means it is only suitable for our 230 ml and 330 ml Recessed Cylindrical jars at present. Samples of the cap (with or without a matching jar) can be requested via info@petpower.eu
    Fields of application
    The 63 mm flapper cap can be used with two jars from PET Power's standard range. The characteristic benefits of a flapper cap make the cap highly suitable for all kinds of powdery or sprinklable products. These could be herbs and spices, as well as cake decorations, sandwich toppings, pet food and other sprinklable products. This website shows the two models which can be combined with this dispensing closure: 230 ml and 330 ml.

    Decoration options
    The closure is available as standard in white and green (as shown). It can of course be produced in any colour of your choice, above a minimum order quantity of 20,000. The most attractive effect is obtained by matching the colour of the closure to the colour or decoration of the jar. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • 3.5-litre Recessed Cylindrical: elegant despite the large volume

    PET Power is known for its comprehensive range of wide-mouth jars. Recessed Cylindrical is perhaps our best-known family. We are now expanding this standard family to include a 3.5-litre jar. This new volume has the same distinctive shapes (round with a recessed label area), but nonetheless differs slightly from the other members of the family. The 3.5-litre jar is a little narrower and taller, and therefore looks slightly more elegant than the other models. The model is produced with the common 100SP400 neck finish and can therefore be combined with a very wide range of standard aluminium or plastic closures. Ask your local sales representative for free samples (free of obligation) or send your request to info@petpower.eu

    Fields of application
    The elegant cylindrical shape lends itself extremely well to many different product groups. These could be chemical or household products, but also food products such as sweets, sports supplements or other products in powder form.

    Decoration options

    The simple, rounded shape is suitable for all possible decoration techniques. In most cases, this shape is best suited to an attractive label which can be accurately applied to the recessed label area. A particularly attractive result is obtained in combination with a coloured jar. We can produce the jar in any colour of your choice. PET Power will be happy to help you find the best solution. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • Completely new range with a unique image

    PET Power is expanding its already comprehensive range to include a completely new standard family. This family is called Carpo Square. It is the combination of different shapes which gives this family its highly striking character. The lower part of the bottle is square, with attractively rounded corners. The neck is cylindrical and conical, giving the upper part of the bottle a different look and feel. All three bottles are produced with a 38SP400 neck finish and can therefore be combined with many standard closures. In particular, many dispensing closures are available with this neck size. Ask your local sales representative for free samples (free of obligation) or send your request to info@petpower.eu

    Fields of application
    The somewhat unusual shape of the bottle may not suit all products. Nonetheless, it is precisely the shape which offers product managers the opportunity to really stand out on the shelf, with packaging which certainly could not be called ‘run of the mill’. The model can be used for fruit juices, but also for dressings or other types of sauces. In the cosmetics world, too, the shape of the bottle can help the end product to stand out from similar products. The shape would lend itself extremely well to products such as bath salts and skincare products, with the right matching closure.

    Decoration options
    The combination of shapes gives packaging developers a nice challenge. The lower part of the bottle, which is square, can easily be provided with a label. An attractive result can be achieved with this model by using a close-fitting sleeve which emphasises the different shapes of the bottle.
    In addition, the PET bottles can be produced in any desired colour. PET Power will be happy to help you find the best solution. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • New flip-top dispensing closure with IHS liner

    PET Power is once again expanding its standard range of closures to include a functional flip-top closure for its 82 mm PET jars. This special closure has a lid at the top of the cap with a dispensing hole beneath it. The cap can be supplied with or without an Induction Heat Seal (IHS liner), which gives the user the certainty that he or she is the first person to open the jar. The closure is supplied in several standard colours, but any colour variant is possible given a specific minimum order quantity. Samples of the cap (with or without a matching jar) can be requested via info@petpower.eu

    Fields of application
    The 82 mm neck finish is generally used for jars with volumes of 500 ml and above. The flip-top lid, in combination with the IHS liner, makes the end product highly suitable for all kinds of food products, such as herbs and other powdered products. Our website www.petpower.eu also shows all the other models which would suit this dispensing closure.

    Decoration options
    The closure is available in any colour. The most attractive effect is obtained by matching the colour of the closure to the colour or decoration of the jar. The Tamper Evidence is created using the IHS liner or a sleeve which covers the entire pack. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • Another success, another expansion

    PET Power is adding a new squeezable oval bottle to its standard range of PET bottles and jars. This 180 ml Squeezy Honey looks compact and, with a height of just 102 mm, does not take up much room on the shelf. Nonetheless, the height is compensated for by the wide front and the combination of different shapes. The bottle has a flat front which is highly suitable for use as a presentation area and has honeycomb patterns on both sides. The bottle is produced with the highly common 38SP400 neck finish and can therefore be combined with many standard dispensing closures. Ask your local sales representative for free samples (free of obligation) or send your request to info@petpower.eu

    Fields of application


    The shape and name of the bottle make it highly suitable for honey products. However, the model can also be used for other food products, such as decorations for baking products or for jams.

    Decoration options


    The bottle can be provided with any decoration option, but is best suited to a label or a screen print. These can be applied to the clear product or to a coloured bottle if required. PET Power will be happy to help you find the best solution. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • Pimp up your packaging

    For many years, PET Power has been exploring all the possibilities offered by PET packaging. Our latest acquisitions include two PET cars: a 4x4 off-road vehicle (715 ml) and a minibus (725 ml). With these surprising models, we once again wish to demonstrate the almost unlimited possibilities offered by PET. Both models are produced with a 63 RTS neck finish. With the 4x4 off-road vehicle, the cap is on the rear of the car and, with a suitable label, can be made to resemble a spare tyre. Working on the basis of this 63 RTS neck, we can draw and produce virtually any desired shape. We would very much like to expand our fleet, or develop new ideas and models, together with you. If you are interested, please contact your local sales representative or send an email to info@petpower.eu

    Fields of application
    Both car models have a very recognisable shape and will already evoke specific emotions in many car lovers. These types of packaging are highly suitable for promotional campaigns for trade fairs or Father's Day, for example. In addition, they could also be used as a gimmick in car showrooms. The jars can be filled with sweets or other food products, but plenty of opportunities also exist for the toy sector. We will be happy to think along with you about the various options!

    Decoration options
    The shape is decorative in itself and will already make sure that the product stands out on the shelf. The best result is obtained through a combination of coloured PET and the application of specific accents using stipple printing. This allows you to determine how far you want to go and with which colour combinations. Both models can also be labelled using lid labels or attached labels. Sleeves can also be applied, with the necessary degree of care. PET Power will be happy to help you find the best solution. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • Sharp Cylindrical: because of success, another expansion

    PET Power is expanding its highly popular Sharp Cylindrical family. The range is being expanded to include a 750 ml and a 500 ml volume, and now consists of ten different volumes. This expansion completes the family and allows our customers to use it as a series containing various different volumes. It is the streamlined cylindrical shape, combined with the straight neck, which gives these models their distinctive, popular image. Both new models are produced with the highly common 28SP410 neck finish and can therefore easily be combined with many standard closures and pumps. Ask your local sales representative for free samples (free of obligation) or send your request to info@petpower.eu



    Fields of application


    The streamlined cylindrical shape lends itself extremely well to many different product groups. These include all kinds of consumables such as inks, car shampoo or other household products. In general, the shape is used most frequently in the cosmetics world. Shampoos, skincare and haircare products are often found in this type of bottle.

    Decoration options


    The streamlined, simplistic shape can be enhanced extremely easily using all kinds of different decoration techniques. Depending on the type of product, the amount of information required or the desired image, you can opt for labels, sleeves or screen printing. In addition, the PET bottles can be produced in any desired colour. PET Power will be happy to help you find the best solution. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • The benefits of plastic with the looks of aluminium

    In collaboration with a producer of plastic closures, PET Power has added a unique cap to its range of closures. The unusual feature of this plastic cap is that the screw threads are visible on the outside, which makes it look like an aluminium cap. It has the same high-quality look, but still offers the benefits of plastic: lightweight, available in many different colours and with a low purchase price. The cap is produced with a 43SP400 neck finish and therefore combines perfectly with several standard models from the PET Power range of bottles and jars.

    Fields of application
    The sturdy look gives the cap a high-quality image, which makes it highly suitable for cosmetic products. However, as the cap is available in many different colours and is attractively priced, it can also be used for other markets. Ask your local sales contact person or our closure specialist Annette Kraan.

  • Discover Wildlife in PET

    For many years, PET Power has been exploring all the possibilities offered by PET packaging. In the months ahead, we plan to surprise you with unique, fun and innovative models. Under the heading ‘Discover Wildlife’, we are proud to present two new standard models: the penguin and the laughing hippopotamus. Both have a volume of 500 ml and are produced with a 63 RTS neck finish. These models were developed on behalf of PET Power and serve to highlight our creativity. With these two models, we wish to inspire you and show you what is possible with PET. Working on the basis of this 63 RTS neck, we can design and produce virtually any desired shape. We would very much like to start developing new ideas and models with you.

    Fields of application
    The striking shapes give these two jars their own unique character. This really makes them stand out on the shelf, certainly if they are also produced in coloured PET and provided with suitable decoration. The 63 mm neck diameter ensures that many different types of products can be packaged in these special jars. These could be animal feed products, but also all kinds of food products such as sweets. However, the unique shape can also be used for gimmicks or for celebration days and holidays.

    Decoration options


    The shape is decorative in itself and will already make sure that the product stands out on the shelf. Both models can be labelled using base labels, lid labels or attached labels. Sleeves are also possible, as long as the requisite care is taken. The best result is obtained with a combination of coloured PET and pad printing. This allows you to determine how far you want to go and with which colour combinations. PET Power will be happy to help you find the best solution.

  • Expansion of the range of tamper-evident jars

    The demand for jars and bottles with the option of a tamper-evident closure is constantly increasing. PET Power is adding a new round standard 1100 ml jar to its comprehensive range. This new jar is called Hestia Round 1100 ml. This robust jar is produced with a 110SP400 T/E neck finish, which means it can easily be combined with five standard T/E closures from the PET Power range. You can choose from a smooth or ribbed version, both of which are available with a single or double band (with the double band, one ring remains on the jar after opening). The jar is almost as tall as it is wide, which makes it seem fairly solid. However, the round shape completely compensates for this and gives the jar its own character.

    Fields of application


    Because of its round, robust shape, this jar can be used for numerous markets and products. The tamper-evident option expressly ensures that this jar is highly suitable for all kinds of food products and other articles for which the user requires visible evidence that he or she is the first person to open the jar, or where this is required by law. We have shown 3 possible examples above, but please do not think that the options are limited to those illustrated. PET Power would like to help you make the right choice, for example by visualising your product in a ‘Your brand’ variant. Contact your local Sales representative and he or she will tell you exactly which services PET Power can provide to assist you.

    Decoration options


    The cylindrical shape is easy to decorate. The jar can naturally be produced in any colour and then decorated if required. The product will certainly benefit from a customised sleeve or a clearly recognisable screen print. The most obvious solution is an attractive label. This can easily be applied to the recessed presentation area, which means that the label will not get damaged during transport. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

    http://www.petpower.eu/index.php/en/news-events/ne...

  • Another expansion to the standard 1-litre range

    The growing demand for 1-litre products has led to PET Power introducing another new standard 1-litre shape. The round Dionysos Bottle still looks elegant, despite its volume. The striking aspect of this cylindrical bottle is the recessed label surface. As a result, both the base and top of the bottle protrude forward slightly, which gives the bottle its unique but neutral look and feel. The bottle is produced with a 28SP410 neck finish and as a result it can be combined with numerous different fliptop closures and pumps. On our website www.petpower.eu, you can use our product configurator to easily see which standard closures can be combined with this bottle.

    Fields of application
    Because of its neutral shape, this bottle can be used for numerous markets and products. We have shown 3 possible examples above, but please do not think that the options are limited to those illustrated. PET Power wishes to help you make the right choice, for example by visualising your product in a ‘Your brand’ variant. Contact your local sales representative and he or she will tell you exactly which services PET Power can provide to assist you.

    Decoration options

  • 300 ml squeezable oval bottle with matching closure

    With this new squeezable bottle, PET Power is anticipating the growing demand for these types of bottles from various markets. This 300 ml oval bottle is a real eye-catcher and can be used for various different kinds of products. At first glance, the bottle seems to have a straight front, but appearances are deceptive. The base of this bottle is smaller in diameter than the top, and the bottle is therefore tapered. The neckline is also slightly tapered on both sides. PET Power has therefore developed a matching closure which fits perfectly and has a dispensing system.

    Fields of application
    The squeezability and the matching dispensing closure make this bottle/cap combination highly suitable for all kinds of viscous liquids. These include shampoos and shower gels, as well as dressings and honey products. Our website www.petpower.eu also shows the other models which would suit these products.

    Decoration options
    The decorative oval shape can easily be provided with any desired form of decoration. Labels and sleeves are decoration options which are already being used on a regular basis for this bottle. However, a professionally-designed screen print can also complement the simple lines of the bottle. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • Sturdy 1500 ml square jar

    The standard range of square jars has been expanded to include a 1500 ml jar. This volume fills the gap between the 1000 ml and 3000 ml sizes and therefore makes this family more interesting for use as a product line. This new jar has a 63SP400 neck finish and can therefore easily be combined with a wide range of standard caps. The relatively-narrow square base makes this 1500 ml jar have good shelf-presence. As a result, it is slightly taller than other similar jars on the shelf, which makes it stand out well from the competition. The jar can be decorated on all sides, and the presentation area is clearly defined by a small recess at the top and bottom of the jar. The jar is quite heavy and therefore feels sturdy when used. You can request the jar and any matching closures, entirely free of obligation, from your local sales representative or via info@petpower.euThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

    Fields of application
    In combination with a flapper cap, it is extremely suitable for the herb and spice market. However, with a modern aluminium cap or a shiny plastic closure, the total combination would also be highly suitable for all kinds of food or cosmetic products. Our website also shows the other models which would suit these products. www.petpower.eu

    Decoration options
    The shape of a jar or bottle makes a considerable contribution to the overall image of your product. However, attractive decoration will allow you to really make your product look striking and stand out from similar products. This jar can, of course, be produced in any colour. As a result of the large label area, it is also easy to provide this jar with an attractive label. The two recesses make the product very suitable for a label. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • A standard bottle, but certainly not a standard shape

    A striking, teardrop-shaped addition to PET Power's standard range of bottles. The lines of this 250 ml Tumble Bottle are far from standard, and its spherical base makes it really stand out on the shelf. The spherical base of the bottle tapers decoratively into the 28 mm neck. As the top of the bottle is smaller in diameter, this 250 ml bottle nonetheless has sufficient height. The bottle is produced with a 28SP410 neck finish and as a result it can be combined with numerous different fliptop closures and pumps. On our website www.petpower.eu, you can use our Product Configurator to easily see which standard closures can be combined with this bottle.

    Fields of application
    This striking bottle can be used for various types of products. It very much depends which closure you choose. A pump dispenser would make the bottle highly suitable for all kinds of hand soaps or shampoos. A fliptop closure, however, would also make the product highly suitable for other personal care products or even food products. PET Power will be happy to help you decide, for example by visualising your product in a ‘Your Brand’ variant. Contact your local Sales Office and they will tell you exactly which services PET Power can provide to assist you.

    Decoration options
    The spherical shape is a nice challenge for any designer. A label is perfectly possible, but does require extra attention because of the sloping lines. However, the bottle can easily be provided with an attractive matching sleeve which highlights the unusual lines of this model, or even limited screen printing. The bottle can of course be produced in any colour. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • 10 New tamper-evident lids in a one-stop-shop range

    Together with a specialist in tamper-evident (TE) closures, PET Power has developed a range for the standard 82 mm, 89 mm, 100 mm and 110 mm neck sizes. These closures are available in two varieties with a single band or a double band. With the double band, one layer is left behind the special tamper-evident ring when the user opens it for the first time. With the single band, no layer is left behind which makes the packaging easier to recycle. These high-quality caps are available in standard colours of white and black, but other colours are also available. The ribbed sides ensure a good grip and the top is available in either an angular or rounded designs.

    Special campaign
    Together with our partner, PET Power has developed a presentation box for these ten lids. This gives you a good overview of the different sizes and models which are available. The box also contains a cap/jar combination which is filled with a delicious treat. This allows you to see how the tamper-evident function works.

    Fields of application
    The tamper-evident function is commonly used in the food and pharmaceutical markets. Vulnerable products or products for which the user wants to be sure that he or she is the first person to open the pack are often provided with an extra guarantee of this kind. Because of (future) changes in EU legislation, this application will also start to be used more and more frequently in the cosmetic market. The table below provides an overview of all the standard PET Power jars which have a tamper-evident ring.

  • Two squeezable oval bottles

    With pride, PET Power is introducing two new oval squeezable bottles which are being added to the standard range. The two shapes appear related, but still differ slightly from each other in regards to dimensions, curves and small details. The striking and light-hearted shapes of both models are unique and have already proved very popular with our clients even before their introduction. The Ohadi Squeeze is supplied in a 300 ml model and the Oregon Squeeze in a 285 ml model. In the future, PET Power wishes to develop one of these bottles further into a new family with several different volumes. With these squeezable bottles, PET Power is responding to the growing demand for these kinds of products. Both models have a 38SP400 neck which is very common within the food sector. Many standard dispensing caps are available for this type of neck.

    Fields of application
    The oval squeezable shape makes these models highly suitable for the food industry. With an appropriate closure, they would be very suitable for dressings and other dispensable food products in particular. These models also lend themselves extremely well to all kinds of cosmetic products. With an attractive aluminum cap, you can create your own identity.

    Decoration options
    Both models can be supplied in any colour. An attractive result is obtained by combining a coloured model with a matching label which precisely follows the lines of the presentation area. Screen printing also lends a unique character to these models, allowing you to create a striking presentation on the shelf. Ask our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • 730 ml oval bottle in standard range

    PET Power is adding a new oval bottle to its standard range. This imposing bottle has a volume of 730 ml and its narrow shape makes it seem fairly tall. The model has two flat presentation areas on the front and rear. The sides and neck are nicely rounded. The bottle is produced with the common neck finish 28SP410, which can easily be combined with a large number of standard closures.

    Fields of application
    Partly because of its imposing oval shape and size, this bottle is a genuine eye-catcher on the shelf. This model would show off all kinds of different cosmetic products to their best advantage. However, it would not be out of place for food products either, and would also look striking on the pharmaceutical shelves.

    Decoration options
    The nice flat areas on the front and rear of the bottle lend themselves very well to a suitable label. The attractive lines would also be extremely suitable for a close-fitting sleeve. There are no limits to the decoration options for this model, which can be provided with a label, sleeve or screen print. It goes without saying that this bottle can be supplied in any colour. Ask our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • Two tamper-evident models added to existing family

    PET Power is adding two models to the standard Recessed Cylindrical family. These two models are existing shapes with an extra ring in the neck. As a result, these models can now also be provided with a special tamper-evident closure. The 82 RTS neck type remains the same for both models, except for the fact that a TE version is now also available. This modification of the neck type allows PET Power to respond to the growing demand for food safety guarantees. PET Power is also expanding its standard range of TE caps, to ensure that you have sufficient choices when it comes to the jar/pot combination.

    Fields of application
    The round, robust shape of this well-known family is already being used in many different markets. The new TE ring, however, means that these models are now also highly suitable for food products for which the user requires guarantees about food safety.

    Decoration options
    The round shape gives you a great deal of freedom when it comes to decoration. The use of a coloured bottle with an attractive label is just one of the many options. As the tamper-evident guarantee is already provided by means of the closure, you can use an attractive matching sleeve to create a streamlined whole. The sleeve does not need to cover the closure, but can be tucked away under the closure. Ask our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

    http://www.petpower.eu/index.php/en/news-events/ne...

  • Expansion of the one-stop-shop range: two new caps

    In the context of our one-stop-shop concept, PET Power has added two functional closures to the standard range. These 63SP400 and 82 RTS closures have a dispensing slide on the top. The very common neck finishes can be combined with many standard PET shapes. The caps can be supplied with or without an IHS (Induction Heat Seal) liner and any colour variant is possible, subject to a minimum order quantity.

    Fields of application
    The 63 and 82 neck finishes are generally used for jars with a capacity of 500 ml and above. The dispensing slide, in combination with the IHS liner, makes the end product highly suitable for all kinds of food products, such as herbs, spices and other powdered products. Our website www.petpower.eu also shows all the other models which would suit these dispensing closures.

    Decoration options
    Both closures are available in any colour. The most attractive effect is obtained by matching the colour of the closure to the colour or decoration of the jar. The Tamper Evidence is created using the IHS liner or a sleeve which covers the entire pack. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

  • Further expansion of the popular Sharp Cylindrical family

    At the end of last year, PET Power introduced three new volumes for this popular range. We are now presenting a further addition to the family, a 1000 ml size. In total, this range now has eight different volumes ranging from 50 ml to 1000 ml. It is the attractive rounded cylindrical shape, in combination with the square shoulders, which makes this family so popular. The 1000 ml model has the common neck type 28SP410. This means that a wide range of standard pumps, screw caps and flip-top caps are available. Our range naturally includes a number of closures, allowing you to order any bottle in combination with the desired cap from us at the same time.

    Fields of application
    The simple, straight shape gives this family its chic image and makes it extremely suitable for all kinds of cosmetic products. However, make sure you do not limit your options, as this shape would also lend itself extremely well to high-quality foods or OTC pharmaceutical products. The simple shape gives the finished product its own individual character and is a treat for the eye in combination with a perfectly fitting cap. This addition makes it possible for our customers to use this range for a total concept which consists of various different volumes.

    Decoration options
    The simple lines, in combination with the round, neutral shape, give every product developer the chance to put their own stamp on this packaging. This family can of course be produced in any colour. However, this range also lends itself extremely well to other decoration solutions. This type of bottle can easily be given a label or sleeve, for example. In addition, screen printing is increasingly being chosen for this type of bottle. This gives the bottle a striking, modern look. Ask our decoration specialist Annette Kraan about the various options.

  • Closure for the 200 ml Sphere Jar

    In the context of our one-stop-shop concept, PET Power has developed a matching closure for the 200 ml Sphere Jar. This jar has been in the standard range for several years, but many clients found it difficult to combine with a suitable closure. The new cap has been designed in such a way that it blends in seamlessly with the neck of the jar. This reinforces the ball shape of the jar, and allows the cap and the jar to form a single unit. You can request both the jar and the cap via info@petpower.euThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

    Fields of application
    The attractive sphere shape makes this jar and cap combination highly suitable for all kinds of cosmetic products such as hair gel, skin creams and other personal care products. However, this specific jar is now also being used for various food products such as confectionery and desserts. Our website www.petpower.eualso shows the other models which would suit these products.

    Decoration options
    Both the jar and the cap can be produced in a very wide range of colour combinations. The spherical shape also gives you many other decoration options. An attractive label or screen print would really make the item stand out on the shelf. A sleeve would also allow you to create an attractive finished product, as well as applying Tamper Evidence. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan about the various options.

  • Luxury matt-finish screw caps

    PET Power has added two new screw caps to its already comprehensive range of caps. These are matt-finish variants for the 70SP400 neck and the 89SP400 neck. The matt finish provides a high-quality image. Both caps have an EPE liner which is glued to the inside. This means that you will not have any problems with the liners falling out during the fully automated capping process. The EPE liner ensures a good seal, thus preventing the leakage of gels or creams, for example. We have the screw caps in stock; you can request them via sample@petpower.euThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or from your local sales representative.

    Fields of application
    Both screw caps have common neck sizes and can be combined with many different jars. These simple matt closures work well with our straight cylindrical range, for example, which has both the 70 mm and the 89 mm neck. The high-quality image makes the end product highly suitable for cosmetic products, although it also works very well with exclusive food products. You can view all the matching PET products on our website www.petpower.eu.

    Decoration options
    Both variants can be ordered in any colour, subject to a minimum order quantity of 30,000 units. This means that the cap colour can match the colour of the bottle or label perfectly. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan,about the various options.

  • Neville Round Bottle

    PET Power is adding two new products to the well-known Neville Round range. These new bottles are freely available and complement the range, which now has seven different volumes.

This means that a wide range of standard pumps, atomisers, screw caps and flip-top caps are available. Our range naturally includes a number of closures, allowing you to order any bottle in combination with the desired cap from us at the same time.

    Fields of application
    It is the compact, bell shape which gives this family its own unique image, making it highly suitable for all kinds of cosmetics and food products. The wide base tapers into a graceful neck in an appealing domed manner. This attractive contrast makes the range very striking. The expansion makes it possible for our customers to use this range for a total concept which consists of various different volumes.

    Decoration options
    The round shape gives you a great deal of freedom when it comes to decoration. A coloured bottle with a label or screen print would create a highly attractive packaging solution. However, a shrink sleeve would also show off this shape to its best advantage. The combination of the compact shape and attractive decoration will turn this range into a genuine eye-catcher on the shelf. Ask our decoration specialist Annette Kraan about the various options.

  • Dual Bottle

    PET Power is introducing a new family to its standard range. The unique feature of this range is the combination of a round and triangular shape in a single design.

    The range comes in two different volumes (250 ml and 100 ml), and both bottles have the common neck finishes 20 and 24SP410. This means that you can combine the bottles with a wide range of standard atomisers, screw caps and flip-top caps.

The family comes in three different volumes (1000 ml, 420 ml and 220 ml). The largest jar has an 83SP400 neck finish and the two other sizes have a 63 RTS neck finish. As these are both common neck finishes, the jars can be combined with a wide range of standard screw caps.

    Fields of application

  • Modern Grinders for herb range

    In the context of our one-stop-shop concept, PET Power has added two new grinder models to the standard range. Both have a standard 38SP400 neck, which makes them different from most other types. The advantage of this design is that they can be refilled, with the end user topping up the product. The difference between the two grinders is the shape. The first model has a conical design and the second model is in the shape of a mushroom. These grinders fit on PET Power's standard range of herb jars and together they form an attractive whole.

    PET Power is introducing a new design in the shape of a bear. This product was created in close collaboration with a client who had a clear picture of the finished product in mind. The client wanted the shape of the packaging to complement the product and to immediately reinforce the association.

    Decoration options
    The Bear Bottle can of course be produced in any colour. However, a transparent bottle will present your product to its best advantage.

  • Flat Round Bottle

    PET Power is introducing a new family to its standard range. The unique feature of this range is the combination of different shapes.

  • Luxury modern pumps

    In the context of our one-stop-shop concept, PET Power has added attractive new pump systems to the range. These pumps fit many of the bottles in our standard range, have a modern, contemporary image and form an attractive match with various types of bottles.

    Fields of application
    The luxury image, together with the ease of use, make this range of pumps highly suitable for various skin and hair care products. Because of the high-grade materials and the quality finish, these pumps will tend to be used more for relatively expensive cosmetic products. We naturally have a supply of samples in stock and will be happy to send you a sample together with the matching bottle. However, please remember that the pumps with coloured aluminium rings are only produced to order and that a minimum order size applies for these products.

    PET Power is introducing a new family to its standard range. This range of triangular bottles and jars consists of two different bottle volumes (250 ml and 100 ml) and two different jar volumes (250 ml and 200 ml). All four models have common neck types, which means that a wide range of standard atomisers, screw caps and flip-top caps are available. Our range naturally includes a number of caps, allowing you to order the bottle or jar in combination with the desired closure from us at the same time.

    Fields of application
    The unique, striking triangular shape lends itself extremely well to cosmetic and food products. The highly individual, quirky shape gives the finished product a clearly identifiable character, creating extra opportunities to really stand out on the shelf. The triangular shape is an exiting challenge for any product developer, giving them a good opportunity to really make their mark on the product. This offers many positioning options for your brand.

    Decoration options
    This family can of course be produced in any colour. However, these ranges are also extremely suitable for other decoration solutions. For example, this triangular design has three nice flat label surfaces and a striking screen print would ensure a highly appealing image. A high-gloss sleeve would create a genuine eye-catcher. Ask our decoration specialist Annette Kraan about the various options.

  • Shampoo Shallow Cap

    PET Power is keen to push the boundaries of what is possible within the PET production process. As a result, we are now introducing three new shampoo/shower gel models with a very low snap neck which is unique in PET. This development has partly been made possible through close collaboration with the manufacturer of the matching flip-top caps. The result is a bottle/cap combination which forms an integrated whole, which until now has not previously been available in PET. The three shapes are being added to our standard range, each with a volume of 250 ml and a 23 Snap neck type. Our range naturally includes the caps, allowing you to order both the bottle and the cap from us at the same time.

    Fields of application
    All three shapes are most suitable for shampoo and shower products. It is precisely the fact that the cap and bottle are integrated which gives the product a striking character with a premium image. The lightweight cap is also an important step towards the reduction of packaging materials, which is good for sustainability. Both the cap and the bottle are available in various different colours and models and can be fully coordinated.

    Decoration options
    Three distinctive shapes, each with various different decoration options. Depending on the shape, printing or sleeves are the most obvious decoration solutions, but labels are also possible. Ask our decoration specialist Annette Kraan for a no-obligation discussion about the various options.

  • Rectangular Bottle family

    PET Power is introducing a new bottle family to its standard range. This family is characterised by its rectangular shape and comes in four different volumes (325 ml/200 ml/100 ml and 50 ml). The largest bottle has a neck diameter of 28 mm, the 200 ml bottle has a neck diameter of 24 mm and the other two bottles have a neck diameter of 20 mm. All the models have an SP410 neck type, which means that a wide range of standard atomisers, screw caps and flip-top caps are available. In addition, our range naturally includes a number of different caps, allowing you to order both the bottle and the cap from us at the same time.

    Fields of application
    The rectangular shape lends itself extremely well to both cosmetic and food products, but also to many other product groups. We're happy to leave that to your own creativity. The distinctive shape gives the finished product a clearly recognisable character of its own. The relatively wide presentation area ensures optimal ‘facing’ on the shelf. The graduated bottle sizes make it possible for you to launch a uniform product range.

    Decoration options
    It goes without saying that the distinctive shape is one way to make your product stand out from similar products. However, this shape also lends itself extremely well to decoration. An attractive sleeve can give your product a higher experiential value and the large rectangular front face offers good labelling opportunities. A simple print can be used to easily create a modern image. Ask our decoration specialist Annette Kraan for a no-obligation discussion about the various options.This family of bottles can of course be produced in any colour.

  • Square Bottle family

    PET Power is introducing a new bottle family to its standard range. This family is characterised by its square shape and comes in four different volumes (206 ml/120 ml/106 ml and 58 ml). The two largest bottles have a neck diameter of 24 mm and the other two bottles have a neck diameter of 20 mm. All the models have an SP410 neck type, which means that a wide range of standard atomisers, screw caps and flip-top caps are available. In addition, our range naturally includes a number of different caps, allowing you to order both the bottle and the cap from us at the same time.

    Fields of application
    The square shape lends itself extremely well to bath and shower products, but also to all kinds of skincare and cleansing products. The unusual shape gives the finished product a clearly recognisable character of its own, and the possibility of really standing out on the shelf. The Square family has many possible applications in all areas and offers many positioning options for your brand.

    Decoration options
    This family of bottles can of course be produced in any colour. However, these bottles are also extremely suitable for other decoration solutions. As this design has nice, flat label surfaces, you could use screen printing (for example) to create a very appealing image. A high-gloss sleeve would really attract attention on the shelf. Ask our decoration specialist Annette Kraan.

Product news

  • From plastic boat to trendy skateboard. What’s next?

    Plastic Whale is a great success. We have shared our enthusiasm about this initiative several times in the past. However, we had not expected that it would gain momentum so quickly. Meanwhile, there are three boats operating on the canals of Amsterdam and many companies are actively involved in the fishing out of plastic. Would you also like to spend a ‘sustainable’ day on the water with PET Power? Then email kk@petpower.eu

    We are very proud to inform you about a new development at Plastic Whale. Marius Smit, the first official Dutch plastic fisherman, has developed a ‘Waste Board’ together with several partners. This unique skateboard is made from recycled bottle tops, which have been fished out of Amsterdam’s canals. As a result, the entire plastic catch is now being used for new applications. For more information about Plastic Whale or the WasteBoards, go to www.plasticwhale.com

    Win a WasteBoard

    What else could you possibly make besides a boat and a skateboard from recycled plastic from Amsterdam’s canals? Along with the Plastic Whale employees, we are very keen to see your creative suggestions. PET Power is offering two WasteBoards for the two most innovative inventions. Don’t just tag along; help us with your ideas about how we can expand this initiative even further! If you would like the chance to win one of the two boards, please send your idea to info@petpower.eu by 31/12/2015.

  • Small change with big positive consequences

    At the beginning of this calendar year, we informed you about the fact that PET Power had become part of the packaging multinational RPC from that point onwards. In the past ten months, you have found that PET Power as a company has continued all its business normally. We continue our efforts to be a trusted and reliable supplier to our customers. However, something is now changing in our appearance, because we are getting a new logo. As well as showing immediately that there is a synergy between the different companies in our RPC Group, the new logo also includes the famous PET Power brand name - a name we will be working together to grow in the years ahead.

    What positive consequences does it have for you?

    The RPC Group is one of the world’s market leaders in stiff packaging. RPC processes virtually every type of plastic for packaging purposes, such as HDPE, PP, PET, and more. The Group can deliver every component from the packaging chain. RPC can boast the world’s largest range of standard products and happily accepts every packaging challenge, from relatively simple new designs to high-tech innovations. This way you can give all your packaging needs to one party, which will make your job a lot easier. RPC has branches around the world, providing internationally oriented companies with the opportunities to achieve logistical advantages. RPC is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is known as a healthy and strong company, something a partner and supplier must be nowadays. If you wish to receive more information about the advantages that RPC can offer besides the well-known PET Power service, please contact your local sales representative or email info@petpower.eu

  • We all want to stand out! But how?

    Standing out from all the alternatives on the shelf is a must for every brand. This can be achieved by means of a striking shape, attractive decoration or a combination of the two. In-mould labelling (IML) is a less well-known decoration technique for lids but PET Power can now offer this process for the standard 70 mm and 82 mm lids. We have produced around a dozen examples for you in a PET Power style. This will give you an idea of the high quality involved and might help you to come up with ideas for your own product ranges.

    What is IML?
    The name IML precisely illustrates the technique. A preprinted polypropylene label is placed in a cap mould. Once the molten polypropylene material for the cap is injected into the mould, it immediately merges with the label. Together, they assume the shape of the cap during the curing process and form a single unit. The main benefits of IML are as follows:

    Extremely high printing quality, with up to 8 colours at high resolution
    Resistant to major temperature changes and therefore also suitable for frozen products
    Scratch-resistant, free of wrinkles or other irregularities
    Tear-proof
    100% recyclable, as the label and cap are made of the same material
    When can IML be used?
    This attractive cap decoration technique is unfortunately not yet available for all cap sizes and can only be used for production quantities from 100,000 units upwards. We can produce mock-ups if required, allowing you to check in advance whether the image of the finished product meets your expectations. If you would like more information, please contact our IML specialist Babette Klaassens directly or email info@petpower.eu

  • Sweeten Your Brand

    This calendar year, PET Power will be placing the confectionery market in the spotlight by means of its Sweeten your Brand campaign. In the months ahead, we will be regularly contacting producers, filling companies and brand owners in this market segment. By means of this campaign, we wish to convey all the benefits of PET as a packaging material and of course also the USP’s offered by PET Power.

  • What are the current packaging trends?

    What are the current packaging trends?
    The packaging market is an innovative place which is constantly in motion, and not entirely without reason, as the right packaging is crucial for the success of your product. The four standard functions of packaging (protecting the product, keeping products together, providing information and serving as a means of advertising) will perhaps always remain unchanged. Nonetheless, it is certainly possible to identify trends within the packaging market. Currently, the following four trends are evident: authenticity, ease of use, customisation of the packaging and visual distinction.

    The four trends

    Authenticity

    Everything in our world is changing extremely quickly. Many people just can't keep up with it all. Precisely for this reason, consumers tend to seek out packaging with shapes and colours which are familiar from the past.


    Ease of use

    As well as the four standard functions, consumers are also looking for ‘packaging which pleases’. This means that the functionality of the packaging must be attractive and enjoyable but that it must also offer ease of use.


    Customisation of the packaging

    The best-known example of this is the Coca-Cola campaign. Figures show that consumers tend to buy packaging with a personal touch. Thankfully, today's digital printing techniques make this an option for many kinds of packaging.


    Visual distinction

    It is becoming increasingly important to stand out from your competitors. In general, product life cycles are getting shorter and shorter and brands therefore have less time to position themselves. This means that getting your product and your brand to stand out on the shelf right from the start is a must for many products.




    Specialists
    PET Power has several specialists on its team and in its network who will be happy to take a critical look at your product or brand with you. We would like to tackle this project together with you from the start, in order to ensure the best possible result on the market. In brief: Packaging your Brand.

  • Plastic dream: building a boat

    The challenge is easy to describe, but harder to carry out: building a boat made of plastic waste. The problem of the Plastic Soup is complex, and as a result there is no single solution. However, Plastic Whale is fighting to ensure that as little waste as possible ends up in nature and therefore in the oceans. Plastic Whale wants to achieve this by making consumers, companies and governments look differently at plastic waste. In many respects, plastic is a fantastic product until it becomes litter. The reason why it ends up as litter in so many parts of the world is that it is perceived as having little value once it has been used. It is literally regarded as disposable. Plastic Whale feels that consumers, companies and governments all over the world should start to recognise the value of plastic waste. If something is valuable, you don't tend to just throw it away, or you will make more effort to recycle it.

    Why build a boat?

    The Plastic Whale initiative was started by Marius Smit and, together with large numbers of volunteers, he wishes to use the boat as a symbol: the ‘Rainbow Warrior of Amsterdam’. They wish to invite many people (school pupils, management teams, tourists etc.) on board this boat, which is around 12 metres long, to tell them about the plastic soup and what we can do about it. The ultimate goal is to have a copy of this boat floating in as many harbours as possible all over the world. If this challenge has struck a chord and you would like to set up the initiative in your own country, please email marius@plasticwhale.org.

    Why is PET Power supporting this initiative?

    PET Power is a producer of PET packaging and therefore understands very well that PET also forms part of the Plastic Soup. However, we fully support the use of PET as a packaging material, but also wish to contribute to its proper use. For this reason, we warmly welcome such awareness initiatives. This also involves telling our business contacts about them. However, we will also roll up our own sleeves and get busy. On Sunday 1 September, we will once again take numerous boats onto the water to fish plastic waste out of the canals in Amsterdam. If you would like to join in, please apply to our marketing manager Kees Kok kk@petpower.eu

  • Refresh your Brand campaign

    Until the end of this calendar year, PET Power will be putting the shampoo, shower gel and hand soap markets in the spotlight. This will take place by means of a special campaign entitled ‘Refresh your Brand’. During this period, we wish to convince every producer, co-packer and filling company in these market segments that PET Power is the right partner when it comes to PET packaging, as well as the management of one-stop-shop projects. This applies to both standard and customised solutions. This applies to both standard and customised solutions.

    What does this campaign involve?

    PET Power has many years of experience in PET production. Our comprehensive range of standard designs and our European Sales network have given us the privilege of being able to produce products for many different customers. Customer requirements are changing at a fast pace, and more and more customers are looking for a total solution instead of just an empty bottle or jar. At PET Power, the way we have set up our organisation allows us to provide you with 100% support by means of this service. Within our network, we work closely together with specialist companies which all have their own areas of expertise when it comes to the various packaging components. We can act as a project manager for you and help our partners, possibly in conjunction with your trusted suppliers, to produce the perfect packaging by working together. We would be delighted to visit you in person to demonstrate the added value of PET Power.

    50 innovative packaging concepts

    Specially for this campaign, PET Power has developed fifty new products for shampoo, shower gel and hand soap. We are presenting three new standard shampoo models in an aluminium gift box. We would be delighted to visit you to present the other models, plus the fifty innovative concepts. If you would also like to participate in this campaign or make an appointment for the presentation of the fifty concepts, please contact your local sales representative or apply via info@petpower.eu. You can find all the information about our campaign by clicking the Refresh Your Brand banner on our home page at www.petpower.eu.

  • PET Power goes ‘Social’

    More and more sectors are discovering the use of Social Media. The packaging sector is also increasingly open to this new method of communication. Social Media can be used for many different applications and offer unlimited communication options. PET Power wishes to use this dynamic, fast method of communication to share new developments with you more quickly. These may be innovative packaging solutions, material developments or sector-related news which may be of interest to both you and your network. As well as providing this information, you will also learn more about our company. What we stand for, what goes on in our factory, what we support and which extra services we can provide which may benefit you.

    Follow us if you would like to be kept informed of all the latest developments within PET Power.
    PET Power would like to start sharing more information, news and developments with you. We have decided to keep you informed using the following channels: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube. The follow icons for these channels can be found at the top of this newsletter. Each article will also feature the share icons, allowing you to share it with your colleagues or other people who may be interested.

    Which subjects will be communicated via which channel?
    PET Power will start using several different social media channels. We will try to avoid too much overlap. In brief, our plans are as follows:

    •We will use Twitter to share news from the packaging sector which is relevant to PET.
    •We will use Facebook to tell you more about our company. This may include new developments, sustainability or a look behind the scenes at the factory, as well as the latest products.
    •We will use LinkedIn to maintain our business relationships, to announce events which we will be attending, and also to discuss our products.
    •On YouTube, we will show clips about various different subjects. These may include internal aspects, but also external items which we would like to share with you.
    •We will try to ensure as little overlap as possible, but sometimes particularly interesting information will be passed on by means of several different channels.

  • Discover the numerous possibilities of PET

    The use of PET has been growing in popularity for years, and more and more users are discovering its wide range of possibilities. It is the freedom to create almost unlimited shapes, in combination with the shiny finish, which makes PET so popular. Nonetheless, you could go even further and use a combination of coloured PET and screen printing to really show off the end product to its best advantage. Complete the product with a theme-enhancing closure and you will create a genuine eye-catcher on the shelf. PET Power is expanding its commercial range to include a soap dispenser in the shape of a snowman. The product is made of PET in an attractive shade of white, with accent colours in places which stand out (such as the buttons and the nose). The pump, in the shape of a hat, turns the finished item into a sought-after object for the kitchen or bathroom.

    What does this mean for you?
    The Snowman is included in PET Power's commercial range and this bottle, including the decoration and cap, can be ordered from us. The packaging lends itself extremely well to a themed product or for use as a gimmick. Our aim was to inspire you and to show you that many more possibilities are available. If you are interested in other possibilities (such as a Father Christmas, Easter bunny, comic-strip hero etc.), please contact your local sales representative. We have already filled the snowman with hand soap for you.

  • A new decoration method: innovative and sustainable

    In collaboration with a partner, PET Power has come up with an innovative decoration solution which is 100% sustainable. This initiative developed out of a comment from the market about the problems caused by labels and sleeves when recycling PET. PET Power wanted to create a decoration option which satisfies the following three requirements: easy to apply, attractive to look at and sustainable. Our partner worked with these three conditions and came up with a surprising idea which meets all the specified requirements: attractive decoration made of folded cardboard. An additional advantage is that both the inside and outside can be printed. This offers huge potential for the presentation of text and images. In one simple step, the cardboard can be folded around our triangular Triconal bottle and remains firmly in place. It's just as easy to separate the cardboard from the PET bottle.

    What can we offer you?
    Are you interested in this new decoration option? For this project, we developed a solution for the Triconal 250 ml (triangular bottle), but you might be interested in using a completely different bottle or jar. If so, please don't hesitate to contact us. We can't wait to start developing your own ideas!

  • PET Power is observing an increasing demand for PCR material

    In the packaging market, this trend cannot be ignored because as a raw material, PCR has a significant market share. Whereas before it was mainly cosmetics companies which showed an interest in this recycled material, we are now also receiving more and more requests from the food industry. PET Power can help you make a well-considered decision to switch to this raw material.

    What exactly is PCR PET (rPET) and can it be used for packaging food?
    PCR stands for Post Consumer Recyclate. It is also referred to as rPET, or recycled PET. In almost every country, packaging waste is now being separated much more effectively. The PET material is separated from all the other plastics and is pressed into square bales. In special locations, these bales are separated, ground and washed. The washed product is extruded and then dried. This process ultimately recreates PCR granules which have the same processing properties as the original, new granules (also known as virgin PET). Just like our virgin material, PCR PET has all the necessary certificates which enable it to be used for packaging food products.

    How does PET Power use PCR PET?
    Depending on the client's requirements, PET Power mixes the virgin granules with a percentage of the PCR PET granules. You can use from 0% right up to 100%, according to your wishes. A higher percentage of PCR PET material will give the resulting bottle a grey tinge and as the composition of the waste can vary, minor colour deviations may be possible over time. At a lower percentage, this will only occur to a minimal extent and will either not be visible at all or will barely be visible in filled products.

    Why might PCR PET be important for you?
    The production of PCR PET reduces the total demand for energy. As a result, it can make a good contribution to your company's sustainability goals.

    Which PCR PET solutions can PET Power currently offer?
    We would of course be delighted to help you find out whether PCR PET could be useful for your business. The first step might involve testing your existing products with PCR PET, giving you a clear picture of the visual consequences. PET Power has also put together a presentation box containing three small bottles. The 1st bottle is standard 100% virgin PET, the 2nd bottle is produced with 50% PCR and 50% virgin material (a common composition) and the 3rd bottle is made of 75% PCR PET and 25% virgin material.

  • New decoration options for aluminium closures

    PET Power offers its clients a new and relatively simple way to make their product stand out from similar products. For most aluminium caps in the standard range, it is possible to apply a relief by means of embossing. The accompanying image shows an embossed bee. It is immediately possible to see from the cap which kind of product is in the jar. To ensure a perfect seal, the closure can be supplied with an EPE liner.

    Fields of application
    The cap shown is an aluminium 70SP400 with a gold finish. This specific project was developed together with a honey packaging company. This form of decoration can be applied to any model, subject to a minimum order quantity of 25,000 units. As a result, this cap is an excellent solution for all kinds of markets and products. Our website www.petpower.eu shows all the standard PET models which would suit this closure.

    Decoration options
    This aluminium cap is available in both silver and gold. The unusual effect can be enhanced still further by means of printing. We can even print in up to six colours on this cap. Ask your local sales contact person or our decoration specialist Annette Kraan about the various options.

    http://www.petpower.eu/index.php/en/news-events/ne...

  • Colour communication improved

    PET Power has developed a new tool to help you establish the right colour for your product. More and more frequently, clients are requesting coloured bottles and jars. In many cases, this is intended to make the product stand out properly from the various competing products, for example by creating an eye-catching colour block on the shelf. Clients are also increasingly choosing to extend the lifecycle of a product through the use of a new or different colour. Whatever the reason for choosing a coloured product, it is always a challenge to find the right colour or an exact colour match between the cap and the bottle.

    Opaque, translucent or transparent colours
    Together with a masterbatch supplier, PET Power has developed a sample book containing 250 colour variations. These variations relate not only to the various colours, but also to the colour density. For example, all the colours are available in an opaque, a translucent and a transparent version. The PET samples allow clients to see the difference immediately. After the correct colour and colour density have been established for your product, PET Power can then start producing it. PET Power has sufficient quantities of each standard colour in stock, which allows us to act very fast.

    Standard colour range and more
    Together, these 250 colours form PET Power's standard colour range. However, your choice is not limited to these colours. Any desired colour can be requested and tested. The sample book merely serves as a useful tool for establishing the desired colour and colour density and to speed-up the colour matching process. Please contact your local sales representative, who will personally discuss all the colour sampling options with you.

  • PET-O2 Barrier

    Safety and the environment
    High-quality wine producers are looking for a good, environmentally-friendly and transparent solution for packaging their wines, in their pure state without the addition of antioxidants. For in-flight catering or for events, the light weight and unbreakability are of course also significant reasons for choosing PET. For new fruit juices and fruit products, in which the trend towards purity and health will start to play an increasingly important role, in some cases an extra oxygen barrier in the PET packaging is also required. For small containers, but certainly also for large containers, such as 2 to 3-litre tubs of pasta sauce, oxygen-barrier PET means that a transparent plastic solution is now also available. This can also satisfy the demand of the retail sector for less vulnerable, lighter packaging.

    Increased oxygen barrier of PET
    Oxygen-barrier PET can increase the shelf life of wine from 3 to 18 months, without the addition of antioxidants to the wine. This is one of the conclusions of the real-time study carried out by PET Power in close collaboration with several specialists. This is good news for the packagers of oxygen-sensitive products, such as wine, pasta sauce and fruit juices.

    Test results with oxygen-barrier PET
    When testing wine in 187 ml oxygen-barrier PET bottles, we worked with a wine-packaging company and an independent wine-testing institute in the Netherlands. The 187 ml Bordelaise model is used frequently for in-flight catering. Various different wines (red and white) were included in a direct comparison between standard PET, glass and oxygen-barrier PET. Every 3 months, the test bottles were tested for:

    Free sulphite levels. Oxygen molecules within the packaging bind to the free sulphites. The lower the sulphite levels over time, the more oxygen molecules will have penetrated the packaging.
    Organoleptic tests. Taste, aroma and colour tests by an expert panel.
    The conclusion of this test over time is that over a period of 12 - 15 months, oxygen-barrier PET is comparable to glass using the above measuring methods, whereas standard PET was already showing excessively low sulphite levels after 3 months. Other similar tests even showed a shelf life of 18 months.

    Material Oxygen Transmission
    (cm3/package.d.bar)
    PET 0,18-0,20
    Oxygen-Barrier PET < 0,0005
