Dear All,

 

My organization manufactures PET/PE bottles, jars and preforms. Can anyone advises on the recommended shelf life of the bottles/jars/preforms.

 

Regards,

 

Maurice.

This will depend on storage conditions

 

One can assume that both PET and PT will break down faster when:

 

Exposed to drastically fluctuating temperatures

 

Exposed to direct sunlight

 

Exposed to noxious vapors that could penetrate the plastic 

 

Storage exceeding 12 months regardless of conditions


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!
