O-I: Plastic beer bottles

An alternative 16-oz design is also offered as well as stock designs for 12- 24- and 32-oz bottles. All bottles are available in clear or amber color. The SurShot™ multilayer injection technology a patented process of the Owens-Illinois Plastics Group precisely premeasures and controls the amount of material that goes into each layer of the PET bottle walls. The SurShield™ barrier material acts as both an active and passive barrier for oxygen and carbon dioxide.
