ThermoShape™ Hot Fill Advanced Technology

THE ALTERNATIVE TO:
beverage aseptic filling
beverage preservative
glass bottle hot filling usage

Revolutionizing PET Packaging Solutions

ThermoShape™ is a simple process utilizing existing Hot Fill Injection/Blow Molding Technology to make lightweight, recyclable PET bottles for shelf stable drinks.

Efficiency and effectiveness define Hot Fill processing

In the ThermoShape™ process, pasteurization renders the product microbiologically stable. The product is then filled hot to decontaminate the inner surface of the container and the closure. At this point, the container is cooled rapidly and immediately to maintain product taste and vitamin content integrity. As the result of this well-performing fill technology, Hot Fill products have a shelf life ranging from 6 to 12 months, similar to aseptic fill products.

In contrast to aseptic filling methods, however, hot filling involves a less rigorous level of technical training and product preparation.

Hot Fill does not require any chemical decontamination of the preform, container or closure. Further, with Hot Fill technology, it is unnecessary to fulfill the stringent filling conditions that are required by aseptic processes to avoid any possible re-contamination of the product or the container during filling and capping.

ThermoShape™ adds economy and flexibility

Plastipak’s revolutionary patented ThermoShape™ technology makes it possible to hot fill lightweight PET containers, providing customers with product integrity and cost effectiveness, as well as the luxury of extensive, brand-building design flexibility.
