What material is the clear plastic water bottles made of?

Clear plastic water bottle is a kind of plastic packaging container with transparent white color formed by blow molding. After injection molding, the intermediate product bottle blank is formed, and then the plastic bottle is formed by blow molding, which is the two-step molding principle. The main materials for making clear plastic water bottles are as follows:

1. PET (polyethylene terephthalate)

PET clear water bottle is hard, good toughness, high strength, bright surface, environmental protection and non-toxic. PET materials are generally used to make plastic bottles for packaging food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

2. PP (polypropylene)

PP clear water bottle has good toughness, environmental protection, non-toxic, high temperature resistance, but its PP plasticity is poor, processing is difficult, the surface gloss is poor, and the color will be lighter when processing, so it is used to make disposable plastic water bottles.

3. Tritan has low density and good permeability, so the tritan water bottle is very transparent, as clear as glass. The price of clear water bottle made of tritan material will be higher than that of PP.
