PETG

Selenis PETG copolyesters are designed for high performance and easy manufacturing in a broad range of applications. These copolyesters provide all-in-one transparency, high gloss surface, easy formability, chemical resistance, durability and high impact resistance.

PETG guarantees easy formability thanks to its low forming temperatures, making this product the ideal choice for easy vacuum and pressure forming and a number of different processes and techniques, such as, bending, drilling, cutting, routing and polishing. PETG copoylesters have fast thermoforming cycles and don’t require pre-drying.

PETG’s unique characteristics make it the material of choice when impact resistance and high strength are required, as these products are known for being virtually unbreakable. PETG tolerates a huge amount of pressure and can endure thermoforming applications that require deep draws, precise mold shapes and complex die cuts, whilst maintaining structural integrity. PETG is also found across the medical field as its rigid structure helps survive harsh sterilization processes such as Gamma, E-beam and EtO sterilization.

Products manufactured with Selenis PETG copolyesters combine exceptional clarity, surface gloss and easy decorability, making intricate imagery an affordable option. The superior clarity that can be achieved with these copolyesters allows packaging engineers to design parts with thick walls without sacrificing transparency. PETG grades are easy to colour with masterbatches, representing the perfect solution to transform ideas into lively creations with superior aesthetics.

PETG copolyesters offer superior chemical resistance when compared to other transparent plastics, as well as good barrier properties, helping brand owners grant product safety and preservation during storage.

All of Selenis PETG copolyesters are BPA and syrene free.

IPA MODIFIED COPOLYESTERS RESINS

Selenis offers a wide range of IPA-modified copolyester resins. Numerous levels and viscosities are available, starting from a low level modification up to a level of 36%.

While the low and medium level modified resins show a significantly reduced speed ofcrystallization they will eventually crystallize and therefore are similar in processing to standard PET bottle grade. However, due to the modification, thicker cross-sections in injection molding and higher thicknesses in sheet extrusion are possible when compared to standard PET and APET.

Due to the low speed of crystallization Selenis IPA-modified copolyester resins are frequently used as heat seal layers in coextruded rigid and flexible packaging.

Selenis’ highly IPA-modified copolyester resins are truly amorphous polymers behaving similarly to PETG. Such resins may be used in heat seal layers for BOPET production allowing heat sealablity, without the need of applying an offline heat seal lacquering layer at a later stage and therefore reducing costs significantly.

Another field of application is in the cosmetic packaging business where very thick wall jars can be easily produced without the fear of any haze developing, hence maintaining prime optical qualities.

HEAT SHRINK SLEEVES

The Selenis Weezen family of copolyesters has been specifically developed for full body shrink sleeves, a packaging solution that will make your products stand out on the shelf. These full-body labels maximize marketing space as they allow 360º printing of eye-catching graphics with excellent printability, clarity and gloss. The Weezen family is the solution that will enhance your brand image and increase consumer brand loyalty.

Weezen grades are the ideal choice for any kind of packaging: beverage, soft drinks, juices, alcoholic drinks, personal care, household products, and labels to fit high contour containers. Labels made with Selenis Weezen copolyester will wrap perfectly around any shape when heat is applied. This product line also offers solutions for shrink processes at lower temperatures, as well as for thin-walled bottles where a lower shrink force is required.
The Weezen grades perform at the highest standards, guaranteeing a high shrink rate, and reaching maximum shrinkage potential at the temperature and time-period that better fits the customer, depending on the choice of product.

Full-body shrink sleeve labels made with Weezen copolyesters allow tamper-evident packaging, promoting a sense of security to your customers whilst reducing packaging cost as there is no need for plastic rings or other tamper evident bands. The portion of the sleeve covering the cap can be perforated to facilitate opening.
