PET bottles

rdb-plastics-Misch-PET

In the field of disposable PET drinking bottles, we differentiate between the following fractions:

  • PET clear *
  • PET mix **
  • PET colored ***

* transparent bottles, ** transparent and colored bottles, *** colored bottles, (depending on the source, collecting bags and cans may be included)

The RDB trades more than 100,000 tons of disposable PET drinking bottles per year worldwide. The top priority here is the purity of the bale goods, which is ideally free of any foreign or interfering substances or other plastics, e.g. PVC or PS. In addition to the pure PET bottles, the side streams such as PE / PP caps and labels are also traded.

PET Flakes

PET-Flakes-2

Our portfolio of hot washed flakes includes the following qualities:

  • PET Flakes clear
  • PET Flakes colored
  • PET Flakes light blue

In accordance with the high quality requirements of our customers, the PET bottles are sorted, crushed, chemically cleaned and then hot-washed in the processing plant. Among other things, residues from drinks but also adhesive residues from labels are completely removed. Secondary streams such as metal cans, ground caps and labels are also generated by this process.

PET regranulate (rPET)

R-PET-2

Our portfolio of PET regranulates includes the following qualities:

  • R-PET (food grade) (various specifications)
  • R-PET (non-food grade) (various specifications)

Through subsequent granulation, our PET flakes are further processed into PET regranulates and further refined as part of certified processes for a large number of industrial applications, particularly in the food sector. The PET regranulates produced are offered for sale in big bags or silos and are ideally suited for packaging in contact with food (e.g. bottle to bottle, film, etc.)
