The third part of this PET training program reviews the uniqueness that exists among bottle grade PET materials and how PET's properties can be altered. The conversion of PET pellets into preforms requires very diligent attention to detail that begins with the drying of PET through melt processing using conditions that minimize degradation. Various degradation mechanisms are reviewed along with a discussion on how the final preform quality is impacted by excessive loss of IV, enhanced generation of acetaldehyde, discoloration, and altered stretch characteristics.
