Plastic Technologies, Inc.
Plastic Technologies, Inc. (PTI) is recognized worldwide as the preferred source for plastic-based packaging development. Brand owners partner with PTI to create commercially-viable packaging structures and find solutions to challenging packaging issues. Extensive capabilities include package design, rapid prototyping, material evaluation, preforms, etc.
Companies come to PTI when they want to understand plastic materials, develop a new plastic package or modify their existing packaging. (You probably have several examples of packages in your own home that we have worked on. But because we are usually brought in as a confidential partner, we typically cannot comment publicly.)
PTI’s concept-to-commercialization package design process assists companies in navigating the multiple stages critical to a successful market introduction. With more than 25 years of successful product development, helping its clients achieve market differentiation through innovative packaging solutions is a top priority.
In addition to managing commercialization projects for brand owners, PTI is also known as a technology innovator.
To help companies make informed decisions on how their packaging impacts the environment, PTI provides comprehensive evaluations on components such as additives, coatings, labels and resins. Extensive analysis can help you understand the environmental impact and recyclability potential of your additive/material combinations.
The company has shown its commitment to source reduction by creating modular systems which produce food grade recycled PET (rPET). These small footprint systems promote a local “collect, convert, consume” approach to recycling. Increasingly, up to 100% rPET is being used for a variety of beverage and food applications and PTI considers itself to be at the forefront of this movement.
Also believing that “leaders should be teachers,” PTI has developed an extensive training program on packaging technologies including aseptic, recycling, barrier properties and PET. The tutorials are designed to enhance knowledge and assist companies who are interested in self-manufacturing.
PTI also offers a wide range of standard and custom testing capabilities for plastic-based packaging materials and containers—both in its U.S. and European locations.
