Petainer: PET jar
Offering significant cost and sustainability benefits, Petainer’s fully recyclable petainerJar PET jar can be supplied with short lead times either as a fully blown jar or as a PET wide mouth preform, ready to be blown by food manufacturers on their own premises.
Designed for products such as protein powders,the petainerJar is a highly-engineered preform made from a PET blend that is said to offer significant benefits over standard PET, including superior barrier technology for extended shelf life, and maximized weight reduction to save materials, thus reducing costs.
The jar is available in sizes ranging from 300ml to 7.6 litres, with standard neck sizes from 63 to 120mm. Petainer offers a portfolio of jars and is able to work with individual customers to create a range that meet their exact requirements.
The two-stage delivery process offers inbound freight savings of up to 90%, according to the company. And because the petainerJar weighs much less, more can be carried on a truck to save dramatically on freight costs and fuel consumption. Transporting jars in preform format improves environmental performance since many more can be transported in fewer shipments. Preforms additionally offer operational benefits because they require less storage space.
