PET Plastic Jars
Before going into which lids and caps go well with our plastic jars, we have to know what PET Plastic Jars are first and what they can handle. PET stands for (Polyethylene Terephthalate)and it has a resin identification code of 1. The resin code PET is of the polyester family and has a high clarity and impact resistance. In addition, it has medium rigidity and good chemical resistance. PET jars are perfect for products such as hair-care, personal care products, and essential oils. Therefore, Avoid using PET style packaging with products that contain essentials oils greater than 5% percent and fragrance oils greater than 15% percent. If your essential oils percentage is above the recommended limit, we would highly consider using glass.
