We know that it is very challenging to succeed in the plastic packaging business. Choosing the optimal plastic material to work with for the future is a great part of this challenge. The material needs to be high performance, sustainable, safe and perhaps most importantly, cost competitive.
To address these challenges we are now offering a new product to the world, in the range of thermoplastic polyesters called Akestra™.
Akestra™ has a heat resistance superior to PET making it excellent in for example hot food service and hot fill applications. The sparkling transparency makes it stand out on-the-shelf and gives that high quality feel that will lift up any brand. As Akestra™ is completely safe for all types of food contact applications brand owners can also feel 100% secure in serving their products, hot as well as cold, in Akestra™.
Thanks to its similarities with PET when it comes to processing, with Akestra™ you can use your PET-production lines without any investments. This enables you to offer an innovative alternative to polycarbonate, polystyrene and even glass.
