PET container with integrated handle passes HPP tests
Pretium Packaging’s SureHandle polyethylene terephthalate (PET) container with an integrated handle is now applicable for high-pressure processing (HPP) food and beverage applications.
The Chesterfield, Mo., company tested the HPP ability at The Packaging School at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, N.Y. The SureHandle bottle was subjected to compression, drop and tensile testing to make sure it could meet the rigorous distribution demands.
The stock SureHandle bottle is available in a 64-ounce, 38-400 mm finish, and gives brand owners significant shelf differentiation, handling convenience and aesthetics.
