Amcor Rigid Plastics has launched a new collection of crystal clear PET stock bottles and preforms for dairy, aseptic, and high-pressure processed (HPP) liquid beverages. These sleek containers are intended to deliver a positive consumer experience along with versatility and flexibility for brand owners and packaging manufacturers.

These premium bottles are claimed to be aesthetically-pleasing, easy to handle and to meet the needs of on-the-go consumers. They are spill-proof and offer higher quality and better sealing than competitive containers. Convenient sizes meet today’s busy consumer lifestyles and enable healthier, controlled portion sizes.

The PET beverage collection is available in round, hourglass, and square shapes and comes in four sizes (12oz, 16oz, 32oz, and 64oz). Three filling types include cold-fill for dairy and juice, aseptic for dairy and juice, and high-pressure processing (HPP) for juice. A broad range of preforms enables stock and custom bottle designs ranging from 8oz to 16oz for single-serve and 28oz to 68oz for multiple-serve applications. Labelling alternatives include wrap, shrink, or pressure-sensitive labels (barring hourglass design).

The product line is intended to enable multiple applications and one-stop shopping for manufacturers thanks to the availability of three shapes, four bottle capacities, three finishes and three filling types.

The new dairy bottle portfolio comes with the lightweight Bericap Aseptic finish. Superior sealing is achieved due to the tight tolerance of the finish, product spoilage is virtually eliminated, and secondary packaging and distribution costs are reduced. For brand owners and co-packers, Amcor’s superior vacuum absorbing technology provides bottle stability even during challenging altitudes and temperatures encountered during transportation and distribution.

Capital costs are reduced because fewer change parts are required to change from incumbent bottles as well as between the different shapes of a given size in the stock portfolio. This cost advantage applies to both the filling equipment and the blow molding machine.
