Wide-mouth PET jar

November 1, 2011




A lightweight replacement for glass for pasta sauces, apple sauce, salsas, jams, jellies and other food products filled at temperatures up to 205ºF, the Amcor 24-oz., round, wide-mouth PET jar is unbreakable, transparent and recyclable. Its 4 horizontal ribs and stiff walls resist vacuum as the product cools, maintaining bottle shape. Blow-trim technology ensures consistent finish dimensions, closure performance and sealing integrity.
