The rPET material is a recycled plastic. It consists of sheets of this component and is made entirely of recyclable materials after consumption.

Its main characteristics are transparency, resistance, a good barrier to oxygen, and water vapor, and the ability to be in contact with food.

However, the most important element is that recycled PET takes care of the environment. It provides a new life to solid waste.

According to Envaplaster, the result of a study indicates that rPET is the material that emits the least greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and causes the least environmental impact.

The main advantages, as we have just seen, are that it is a 100% recyclable material.

– Its manufacture involves a reduction in the carbon footprint compared to other greenhouse materials.

– Decreases fossil fuel consumption.

– It is a lightweight material, this reduces the cost of transport and reduces its impact on the environment by having less weight.

rPET is used in many sectors, such as industrial engineering, as it is a material with many functions, for example:

  • Food and beverage packaging. It is a light and resistant material that protects from the cold and is resistant to heat.
  • Fabrics, as they are resistant and have a high heat tolerance and long durability.
  • Advertising articles. It is becoming more and more common to see designs where this material is used, such as umbrellas, backpacks, bottles …
  • Containers of any kind and for fuel for 3D printers.

At Designplast, as engineers, we are committed to the environment and we are committed to using recyclable materials to help the planet with climate change.

That’s why if you have a project, product, or design in mind and/or want to use recyclable materials, we help you do it.
