Carbonated Soft drinks and water market

Soft drinks are often carbonated and commonly consumed while cold or at room temperature. The most common of them include cola, flavoured water, sparkling water, iced tea, sweet tea, sparkling lemonade (or other lemon-lime soft drinks). In the late 18th century , the method of infusing water with carbon dioxide to make carbonated water was discovered. Since then, numerous inventions and patents have been filed for this specific market. The first commercial PET bottle in Europe was marketed in 1970´s (with the specific base-cup for carbonated products).

The carbonated soft drink and mineral water markets are the largest segments of the PET beverage industry with more than 50% of the total market. For the majority of these markets, RESILUX offers you the standard PET preforms and bottles produced according the latest state-of-the-art processes.

For specific applications where longer shelf-life and improved CO2 barriers are needed, RESILUX offers the ResiC® products. These products are used for small CSD bottles with high carbonation levels or for a long shelf-life where little C02 loss is required.

Beer market

Imagine going for a picnic on the beach and taking some beer with you. Idyllic, you might think, unless you either (a) have to carry the heavy load of bottles or (b) drop the bottles and leave fragments of glass all over the place. That is why new safe and light PET bottles for beer have proven themselves to be doubly attractive for outdoor use, as well as for serving at music festivals and in clubs.

With the rise of both indoor and outdoor leisure activities, such as music festivals and sporting events, traditional glass bottles, which may break or be broken, can increasingly be seen as a safety hazard. But on top of this, the re-closable PET bottle is suitable for the larger bottle sizes, which is reflected in the common use of PET bottles for beer in Eastern European countries.

The principal obstacle to the introduction of a PET container for beer is that PET is something of a gas "sieve" when it comes to the permeation of oxygen and carbon dioxide. The shelf-life of a beer depends on how long it keeps its flavour, which is limited by its exposure to oxygen. These delicate flavours are also adversely affected when carbonation levels decrease. The focus of recent material developments at RESILUX has therefore been to improve the PET's barrier properties in order to cope with these two gases. This enables our customers to offer a longer shelf-life, as is needed to meet both consumer and retail requirements.

RESILUX has developed the ResiMid® product for the larger size beer bottles (1.5 and 2.0 litres) or for a medium-term shelf-life of the beer.

For the smaller size beer bottles (0.33 cl up to 1.0 litre) and for a long shelf-life of the beer, we can support these beer products with our ResiMax® product. With the extra CO2 and O2 barriers provided by Resimax, the customer can conserve the beer's flavour for a longer period.

Wine market

Wine has predominantly been packed in one-way glass bottles since the 17th century. Recently, we have seen some changes in this market and also in consumer habits and preferences. The packaging needs to be lighter, to be more ecological, to have greater differentiation in the design, and so on. As innovative products as screw caps and synthetic corks have found their way into the wine market, RESILUX also wants to introduce the new PET bottle for wine applications.

750 ml wine bottle in glass weighs between 480 gr and 620 gr. With PET, we are able to offer weight-reduction of up to 90%, as the standard wine bottle weighs 48 gr. But as wine is also an oxygen- sensitive product, RESILUX has developed the ResiOx® product range, which can guarantee a longer shelf-life of the wine in PET. The ResiOx® range has three variations depending on customer need:

  1. ResiOx® 3 gives you a minimum of three months of no oxygen ingress through the PET bottle
  2. ResiOx® 6 gives you a minimum of six months of no oxygen ingress through the PET bottle
  3. ResiOx® 9 gives you a minimum of nine months of no oxygen ingress through the PET bottle
Besides the wine's sensitivity to oxygen, we also know that light can affect the wine's flavour over a period of time. RESILUX can also offer a solution for this phenomenon with wine-specific colour stabilisers and UV blockers.
