they have eliminated visible panels thereby producing smooth-sided containers that mimic glass jars and are easier to label. The containers are suitable for filling at temperatures between 195 and 205 degrees Fahrenheit (91 and 96 degrees Celsius) that should handle most food applications.
Graham Packaging have developed what they claim to be the first polyethylene terephthalate (PET) containers for wide-mouth hot-fill applications. Using proprietary vacuum absorption technologies, they have eliminated visible panels thereby producing smooth-sided containers that mimic glass jars and are easier to label. The containers are suitable for filling at temperatures between 195 and 205 degrees Fahrenheit (91 and 96 degrees Celsius) that should handle most food applications.
