PET Power introduces the Carpo Square line

April 25
14:20 2013

PET Power is expanding its already comprehensive range to include a completely new standard family. This family is called Carpo Square

It is the combination of different shapes which gives this family its highly striking character. The lower part of the bottle is square, with attractively rounded corners. The neck is cylindrical and conical, giving the upper part of the bottle a different look and feel. All three bottles are produced with a 38SP400 neck finish and can therefore be combined with many standard closures. In particular, many dispensing closures are available with this neck size.

Fields of application

The somewhat unusual shape of the bottle may not suit all products. Nonetheless, it is precisely the shape which offers product managers the opportunity to really stand out on the shelf, with packaging which certainly could not be called ‘run of the mill’. The model can be used for fruit juices, but also for dressings or other types of sauces. In the cosmetics world, too, the shape of the bottle can help the end product to stand out from similar products. The shape would lend itself extremely well to products such as bath salts and skincare products, with the right matching closure.

Decoration options

The combination of shapes gives packaging developers a nice challenge. The lower part of the bottle, which is square, can easily be provided with a label. An attractive result can be achieved with this model by using a close-fitting sleeve which emphasises the different shapes of the bottle.

In addition, the PET bottles can be produced in any desired colour.
