Alpha Packaging, a US manufacturer of plastic bottles and jars for the personal care, pharmaceutical and nutritional supplement industries, has recently introduced four 32-ounce narrow-neck bottles. Each of the new bottles represent the largest size in Alpha’s four most popular polyethylene terephthalate (PET) liquid lines: Boston Rounds, Cosmo Rounds, Modern Rounds and Capri Ovals.
These bottles are typically used for large quantities of hand sanitizers, liquid soaps, shampoos and conditioners, and other liquids used around the home or in larger institutional settings. The overflow for each bottle exceeds 1 litre, so they are ideal for items marketed as either 32 liquid ounces or liter-size.
All four bottles are made on 2-stage (reheat and blow) process at Alpha’s Salt Lake City plant. According to Bob Wilson, Director of Alpha Technology Center, “The 2-stage stretch blow moulding process offers the ability to produce fairly lightweight containers with very high impact resistance, which is ideal for these large PET bottles.”
