PET heavy wall combines the best qualities of glass & plastic packaging

When we say "Heavy Wall style", it means a material that is extremely durable, with absolutely no compromise on beauty or luxury of the lok and feel.

At EPOPACK, all of the PET plastic is done in the Heavy Wall style. It requires special machines and expertise to produce, but the results speak for themselves. The term Heavy Wall refers to the container’s surface, which is very sturdy.

What exactly is the "Heavy Wall Style"?

- it is high-clarity and appears to look like glass
- its sturdy construction makes it shatterproof, crack proof, and chemical resistant
- it is not heavy in weight — in fact it is lighter than glass and acrylic
- it does not require multiple layers, and so it is thinner than glass and acrylic
- it is rated International Recycle Code #1 (the most recyclable plastic)

Because PET plastic is used so widely in food and beverage containers (like water bottles), some people assume that it may be a flimsy or cheap material. In terms of cosmetic packaging, this could not be further from the truth. When done in the Heavy Wall style, PET containers are strong, striking, and quite luxurious.

PET Heavy Wall bottles and jars can be customized and decorated in many ways, including printing, hot stamping, spray or injection coloring. Several of our caps and attachments are also made using PET Heavy Wall for the same robust construction (and of course to have single-material packaging that is more convenient to recycle).

Cosmetic containers made from eco-friendly PET plastic

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is rapidly becoming the world’s preferred packaging material. It does not contain bisphenol-A (BPA) or phthalates, and is fully recyclable.

PET plastic is rated International Recycle Code #1, making it the most eco-friendly plastic on the market.

It also has excellent physical and chemical resistance to contain nearly any cosmetic. And we manufacture our PET bottles, jars, and attachments to be ideal for hair care and skin care products

The first choice for a sustainable luxury cosmetic brand

PET is a great substitute for glass. It is high-clarity in appearance, but also shatterproof for more secure shipping and handling. It also has a lower Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) than glass.

And compare the sustainable and high-end PET plastic to other plastics available:

- PET plastic is rated International Recycle Code #1, making it the most eco-friendly plastic on the market.
- PP (Polypropylene) has poor transparency and is rated as International Recycle Code #5
- AS (Acrylonitrile Styrene) / SAN (Styrene-Acrylonitrile) is acid sensitive, easier to crack, and is lowly rated as International Recycle Code #7
- Acrylic / PMMA (Poly Methyl Methacrylate) is acid sensitive, overly bulky, and is lowly rated as International Recycle Code #7
- PETG has a higher raw material cost, and is lowly rated as International Recycle Code #7

PET is the clear winner.

EPOPACK has taken PET packaging to the next level with a high-end innovation

In order to get the quality and beauty of glass with the security and convenience of plastic, EPOPACK pioneered the development of Heavy Wall PET material.

The PET used in our cosmetic bottles and jars is still fully recyclable and completely customizable in terms of colors and decorations. But it is also sturdy and glass-like in feel and appearance.
