Flake to Sheet

PET sheet is a versatile product and the feedstock for end products like trays, cups, tubs, food packaging, and non-food applications. rPET sheet is food grade, thanks to the supercleaning process before the extrusion of the sheet. 

In terms of processable input material, viscotec’s production lines are highly flexible: post-consumer PET flakes, in-house skeleton waste and pellets can be used.


Decontamination of the material happens in the vacuum reactor prior to the extrusion of the sheet. This guarantees high intrinsic viscosity (iV), 100% food grade approval and excellent sheet quality. No virgin material is necessary - therefore, the output is sheet made of up to 100% rPET.


From flakes to sheet with one entire solution.
