PET Bottle Flakes

Gravita produces high quality food packaging PET flakes. Up to 1750 MT of PET flakes are produced a month. We produce 75% clear and 25% mix flakes from the total volumes. 60% of our clients are food packaging producers and 40% are fiber and PP strap producers.

Recycled PET Flakes

PET Flakes

The manufacturing of recycled PET flakes has been the cornerstone of Gravita since its inception. The company produces a wide-range of high-quality PET flakes in addition to fibre-grade flakes that have been sought after by various industries from food packaging to textiles. The growing utilisation of plastics in industrial and consumer applications worldwide, combined with consumers’ growing awareness around plastic recycling has led to an increase in demand for recycled plastic materials. Gravita’s expertise in recycled PET flakes manufacturing allows for a sustainable approach to plastic recycling combining environmental awareness and cost effectiveness.

In producing recycled PET flakes, Gravita utilises its vast network of recycling centres to sort and separate the plastic raw materials by colour and plastic type to avoid contamination in the manufacturing process. The company’s sustainable supply chain management system allows for the continued supply of PET bottles to its recycling centres and a production capacity of 1000 metric tonnes per month. The recycled PET flakes are available in a selection of colours such as light blue, dark blue, green and clear ready for immediate delivery to the company’s customers around the globe. This rigorous approach is done manually so as to ensure consistently low level of impurities; PVC bottle tops are also disregarded during sorting. Once the sorting process is complete, the source materials are then grounded into flakes and are then washed and sterilised to remove further impurities in the final product.
