As for all thermoplastics, PET is transformed from the state of granules into finished products by different methods:


Thanks to this assembly of 2 different molecules, PET has specific characteristics:

  • Transparency,
  • Brightness,
  • Resistance to shocks, pressure, gases, traction.

Transformation technologies:

  • Injection blowmolding, hot or cold cycle,
  • Extrusion,
  • Thermoforming.

Each method makes it possible to manufacture a certain type of product.


The intrinsic properties of PET make it an ideal material for the production of soft drink bottles.

Recycling and RPET:

PET is 100% recyclable and can therefore be recycled to produce bottles containing 25%, 50% or 100% recycled PET (RPET). Which means less impact on natural resources and helps reduce CO2 emissions by up to 110%.

However, CVP voluntarily limits the amount of RPET in its packaging to a maximum of 50%. This restriction allows us to be able to recycle our packaging without any limit in terms of cycle.
Beyond 50%, the mechanical qualities and the resistances are altered and limits the number of recycling to 8.

To simply identify all its plant-based plastic packaging and other materials with a reduced carbon impact, CVP uses the name: « SO GREEN by CVP ».
