OCTAL : DPET™ sheet for thermoformed package
OCTAL Petrochemicals’ proprietary DPET™ (direct PET) sheet can replace recycled PET (RPET) sheet for clear thermoformed packaging for food, dairy, and consumer product markets.
DPET™ sheet combines sustainability and product performance--high consistency, easy forming, high machine output, and good aesthetics. The carbon footprint of DPET™ sheet is roughly the same as RPET blends with up to 50% recycle content. DPET™ sheet has a higher modulus than RPET (280,000 psi vs. 180,000 psi). Because of this, downgauging by up to 12% over RPET is achievable without affecting package performance.
