Hot-fill beverage bottles

October 1, 2006




Amcor PET Packaging says its family of PET containers, the QuadPlus and QuadMax3, offers improved strength for hot-filled beverage applications. The QuadPlus offers a more rigid, stronger alternative for 46-/48- and 64-oz., hot-filled rectangular PET bottles. QuadMax3 also offers a more rigid alternative. The design is for processors with beverage applications currently in round PET containers or already in a rectangular footprint but interested in converting to 64- or 46-/48-oz. rectangular footprints with space-saving geometry.
