  • Vacuum Forming Blister Packing

  • Chocolate and Biscuit trays

  • Food Packing


  • R-PET is made from PET that has already been used for packaging, such as plastic bottles. These films are certified for use in food, pharmaceutical & drinking water applications.

  • It has a low carbon footprint that protects the environment and a sustainable option that helps optimum utilisation of our resources.

  • 100% recycled PET flake OR both recycled PET flake and virgin PET material at percentages specified by the customer.

  • R-PET is produced by collecting, sorting and recycling PET, then refining the material into flakes that can be turned into new products.

  • Using R-PET as an alternative to PVC is a huge step forward on the path toward a greener, safer
    and cleaner future.

  • R-PET sheet with tight tolerances is ideal for packaging, laminating, and custom thermoforming applications.

  • R-PET films are best suited for rigid packaging applications in industries ranging from food and medical to automotive.

  • Compared to plastic resins such as PP, PVC, and HDPE, R-PET materials have high tensile yield strengths.

  • R-PET films exhibit resistance to strong oxidisers, alcohol, and hydrocarbon solvents.

  • In food packaging applications, R-PET films act as barriers to fat, grease, and oil. Depending on special packaging requirements, can coat R-PET sheet with silicone or anti-static/anti-fog materials.

  • Recycled PET (RPET) is a viable alternative to virgin PET and can be used in multiple applications.

  • Over the last several years, RPET has been successfully used in food packaging applications.

  • RPET produced by AGPL and by other manufacturers can be found in beverage bottles and food packages on the shelves of stores and supermarkets
