Now more than ever we are surrounded by PET containers of sanitizers and room and personal hygiene detergents.
Safety, functionality, innovation and ergonomics are the main features that the containers used by manufacturers of detergents and sanitizers must have. These characteristics can be easily achieved by using a packaging material that is now back in fashion: plastics.
The advantages of plastics (especially of PET) in the production of containers for personal care and pharmaceuticals are many.
This material is cheaper than other packaging solutions, it is light, flexible and has a high resistance: a very useful feature, especially during the transport and storage of products; furthermore, the processing of plastics requires less energy compared to other materials (such as glass).
The world consumption of plastic materials for producing containers for household cleaners has grown an average of 4,8 % per year over the last ten years (data 2010-2019); a growth determined by an evolution of the sector, in which liquid products or products contained in plastic bottles are progressively taking market share from powder cleaners or detergents in tablets packed in cardboard cases.
Thanks to a team of highly specialized engineers and latest generation tools, SMI is able to design, develop and virtually prototype a wide range of packaging solutions in PET, according to the customer's specific requirements.
