BC212 is a crystalline, high molecular weight thermoplastic polymer made by continues melt-phase polymerization process followed by solid-state polymerization. BC212 is specially formulated bottle grade PET, characterized by high I.V and low acetaldehyde. The high I.V. confers good mechanical properties; high burst strengths and reduced bottle distension after filling.
BC212 is especially suitable for the production of bottles for carbonated drinks. The high I.V. gives the bottle the extra mechanical strength required in hot countries due to the high pressure from carbonation. It can also be used for bottles for non-carbonated and other packaging applications, e.g. edible oil & thermoformed packaging.
