The material of plastic cosmetic bottle is usually PP, PE, AS, ABS, acrylic, PET, PETG etc. Commonly used in cosmetic jar, cosmetic bottle, wall thickness cream bottle, jar cap, bottle cap, bottle stopper, gasket, spray pump, lotion pump, dust cover etc. PET cosmetic bottle blowing two-step forming bottle perform, also can be made by injection molding, blown bottle finished packaging. Other lotion bottles, such as thinner wall cosmetic containers and bottles are produced by blowing bottles process.
You only need to have a preliminary understanding of the above content, and OEM cosmetic bottles manufacturers have professional staff to explain to you. It is important to keep in mind the differences between the following common materials.
PET Cosmetic Bottle
PET has high transparency and the PET cosmetic bottle is soft and can be squeezed but is harder than PP.
PP Cosmetic Bottle
PP cosmetic bottles are softer and easier to squeeze than PET, and less transparent than PET, so some opaque shampoo bottles are more common (easy to squeeze).
PE Cosmetic Bottle
PE cosmetic bottles are basically opaque and not as smooth as PET. Detailed description of OEM packaging materials, a compulsory course for the cosmetic industry!
Acrylic plastic, also known as plexiglass, is a useful, clear material that resembles glass, but offers better transparency and weighs 50% less than glass of equal thickness. Acrylic is known as one of the clearest materials, offering a transparency rate of 93%.
Acrylic cosmetic bottles and jars are thick and hard, and has very good transparency.
Polyethylene terephthalate glycol, known as PETG or PET-G, is a thermoplastic polyester that delivers significant chemical resistance, durability, and formability for manufacturing. PETG is an adaptation of PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) where the ‘G’ stands for glycol, which is added at a molecular level to offer different chemical properties. PET uses the same monomers as the glycol modified PETG, but PETG has greater strength and durability, as well as being more impact resistant and better suited to higher temperatures.
Due to the low forming temperatures of polyethylene terephthalate glycol it is easily vacuum and pressure formed or heat bent, making it popular for a variety of consumer and commercial applications. These properties also make one of the more widely used materials for 3D printing and other heat-forming processes. PETG is also well suited for techniques including bending, die cutting and routing.
