This thermoplastic, which has been known since the 1930s (abbreviation for polyethylene terephthalate ) was further developed and made malleable in the 1960s. It is used to manufacture bottles (PET bottles), foils and textile fibers. The breakthrough came in 1978 when Coca-Cola marketed the branded beverage in a 2 liter bottle made from this material. There are PET bottles in sizes from 0.3 to 5.0 liters in circulation. From the 1990s, simpler-cut wines were also bottled in PET bottles. Since the valid from August 2009 EU wine market is now also used for quality wines allowed. The plastic is also used for the production of Bag-in-Box. Tetra pack and capsules used.
