PET, which stands for polyethylene terephthalate, is a clear, strong and lightweight plastic belonging to the polyester family.
It is typically called "polyester" when used for fibers or fabrics, and "PET" or "PET Resin" when used for bottles, jars, containers and packaging applications.
Best of all, PET is recyclable and highly sustainable. It is the most recycled plastic in the United States and worldwide. PET can be recycled again and again – back into containers for foods, beverages and personal care products – or into carpet, clothing, automotive parts, construction materials, industrial strapping, and scores of other products.
How PET is Made
The basic building blocks of PET are ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid, which are combined to form pellets of PET. These resin pellets are then heated to a molten liquid that can be easily extruded or molded into items of practically any shape.
