PET Competence

KHS and Eckes-Granini have been a good team for many years when it comes to the sustainable protection of high-quality juices and juice beverages.

PET bottles with a premium coating

The innovative FreshSafe PET coating system is an especially sustainable system for the optimum protection of carbonated beverages, juice, wine or sauces in PET containers.

This is made possible by an ultra-thin protective layer of silicon oxide (SiOx) or chemically pure glass which finishes the inner wall of the PET container. In this way the protective properties of a glass bottle are combined with the weight benefits of PET packaging.

The barrier protects sensitive products from oxidation and carbonated beverages from carbon dioxide loss. Another advantage is that the products keep up to seven times longer than products in standard PET containers. The SiOx barrier is also 100% transparent which means that the PET containers retain their crystal-clear appearance.

The coating system is available in a number of variants – as a single machine with an output of up to 3,600 or 46,000 bottles per hour or as a block concept. Here, KHS offers the InnoPET FreshSafe block, a stretch blow molder/coating unit for the processing of up to 40,000 bottles per hour, or the InnoPET FreshSafe TriBlock, a stretch blow molder/coater/filler unit which outputs up to 46,000 bottles per hour.

The benefits of FreshSafe PET

Sustainability

The bottle is 100% recyclable. This not only makes it especially innovative but also convincing in its level of sustainability.

Product quality

The wafer-thin layer of glass ensures that the quality of sensitive products or carbonated beverages is perfectly maintained and protected.

Shelf life

With FreshSafe PET no unwanted substances enter the PET bottle from outside – and valuable ingredients such as vitamins cannot escape. This makes products especially long lasting, with shelf lives up to seven times longer than without FreshSafe PET.

Taste

The specially protected quality of the bottle content results in a convincing taste which is both fresh and unadulterated.

Weight

The innovative coating combines the advantages of the glass bottle with the extremely low weight of the PET container.

Unbreakable

The layer of glass is so thin that coated bottles are just as unbreakable as any other PET container.
