Wide-Mouth Polyethylene Terephthalate Containers
The ThermaSet line is based on a proprietary process developed by Liquid Container that substantially increases PET’s glass transition point. The end result is sustained thermal stability at 205°F and shrinkage of less than 1%. Another benefit of the proprietary process is that it yields an incremental improvement in barrier. Liquid Container also has additional barrier options to meet more challenging product performance objectives.

PetroOxy Oxidation Stability Tester
The compact PetroOxy features a small hermetically sealed test chamber in which a 5 ml sample is combined with oxygen at a pressure of 700 kPa (approx. 7 bar) and heated to a temperature of 140°C. These test conditions initiate a very fast aging process, which is measured by a pressure drop within the chamber.
