Biaxial orientation of PET for the production of high strength films for demanding applications, such as slot liners for electrical motors and sound and audio visual tapes, is a well established process. More recently biaxial orientation of PET has been utilised for the production of carbonated beverages, bottles and cans for processed food packaging to achieve high strength and impact resistance. These containers, however, are not suitable for hot filling and high temperature sterilization purposes owing to the lack of dimensional stability. [Continues.]
