A preform is an intermediate product that is subsequently blown into a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) container. Preforms vary in neck finish, weight, colour and shape, and are specifically designed to meet the needs of customers in different market segments.

Preforms are manufactured from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), so they are called PET preforms. They are produced by RETAL 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, edible oil, mayonnaise, ketchup, sauces, household and cosmetics products

In addition to standard preforms, RETAL manufactures custom preforms tailored to individual customer requirements.

To choose the best packaging option for your needs, contact a sales representative or technical support specialist. They will help you make a suitable selection based on your equipment, the complexity of the shape of the PET bottle, and your special requirements.
