Bottles are produced in sizes 100 to 500 ml. Designed for fresh dairy products, particularly yogurt drinks and fruit juices. The plastic goes directly from sheet to bottle, a cost savings of 30 to 50%, according to the company.  Blowing is performed at low-pressure (< 6 bar) and at low temperature (< 150°C). Compatible with PS, PP, PLA, and PET plastics.  Produces 7,000 bottles/hour.  Not only provides material cost savings, but also transportation and sustainability advantages because the rolls occupy so little space.
