Brave and bold beer bottles
PET Engineering established a partnership with ColorMatrix, an innovator of liquid colour and additives for plastics, in order to investigate new colours.
As a result of the collaboration, the Brave & Bold one litre bottle for beer was born using the Liquid Metallic Colors series by ColorMatrix.
The bottles feature the shimmering effect of aluminum bottles, but with the advantages of PET, such as excellent mechanical performances, unbreakability and lower cost, the company says.
The material also decreases the risk of fobbing as it doesn’t contain any particulate, giving the internal surface of the bottle a perfect continuity. Moreover, it can be combined with barrier additives for content protection, is more recyclable compared to existing technologies used to create similar effects and allows rapid colour changes with minimal downtime.
