What Is A-PET?

A-PET, otherwise known as amorphous polyethylene terephthalate, is a type of thermal plastic which falls under the polyester product category. It is an incredibly reliable and robust material which is most commonly used for items such as water and fizzy drink bottles, as well as household objects, including food jars. One of the most significant benefits of using A-PET is that the material is fully recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly option. Once recycled, the material takes the form of RPET and instead of the products previously mentioned, is used for items such as blankets, car part and insulation.

The cutters available at O’Leary Engineering are designed only to be used on A-PET. However, if you are unsure about which parts are best suited to your requirements, our team of engineers are always more than happy to advise you on the best route. A-PET is one of the most common materials to be paired with thermoforming machines as it is both transparent and versatile, making it ideal for commercial packaging. It also does not attract or transfer chemicals, making it a popular choice amongst those in the food and drink industry.
