A preform is an intermediate product that is subsequently blown into a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) container. Preforms vary in neck finish, weight, color and shape, and are specifically designed to meet the needs of customers in different market segments.
Because preforms are manufactured from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), they are called PET preforms. They are produced using a highly-accurate injection molding process on equipment from the leading world vendors.
Preform weight depends on the end container's desired volume. Preforms can be single-layer or multilayer. Barrier preforms provide additional benefits and increased beverage shelf life, thanks to a special layer embedded in several layers of polyethylene terephthalate.
RETAL offers a full assortment of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) preforms for packaging, transporting and storing drinking water, mineral water, carbonated beverages, juices, nectars, baby food, dairy products, beer, low-alcohol and alcoholic beverages up to 40% abv, cooking oil, mayonnaise, ketchup, sauces, household chemicals, and cosmetics.
In addition to standard preforms, RETAL manufactures custom preforms tailored to individual customer needs.
To choose the best packaging option for your needs, contact a sales representative or technical support specialist. They can help you make a selection based on your equipment, the complexity of the shape of the PET bottle, and your special requirements.
RETAL's offerings also include other specialized and custom neck finishes in various weight ranges. e.g. "34/29 and 28mm double-start" and 17-63 mm
In addition to preforms for retail packaging, we manufacture preforms weighing 260-485 g for large PET containers with volumes of 10-25 liters, which are used in the food and chemical industries.
We can manufacture any other type of preform within 4-6 weeks.
