The company's unique PET resin and patented DPETTM sheet have gained critical acclaim for their superior mechanical and optical properties, while delivering the lowest carbon footprint compared to other PET sheet and the polymers for which DPET
The unprecedented environmental advantages of DPET
have also encouraged local companies such as Dhofar Cattle Feed, National Mineral Water Company, Lulu Hypermarkets and Areej Vegetable Oils to use OCTAL's proprietary.
Octal states its DPET
sheet is ideal for produce packaging such as fresh produce, meat, cheese and yoghurt, as it has superior optical qualities together with strength, flexibility and sustainability.
The advantage is that DPET
sheet is clearer and less brittle than recycled sheet, but with the same environmental benefits;" says Knutson.
Attracting the attention of the market in particular this year are the company's recently launched, first of its kind, new process technologies for DPET
pots for yogurt and dairy products and modified PET disposable cups, lids, cutlery and food service applications, which delivers performance while using lower energy.

OCTAL currently uses 67% less electricity to manufacture DPET
sheet and 38% less energy for resin.
Our patented DPET
technology uses a single-phase reactor to integrate PET resin and sheet manufacture," says Octal managing director Nicholas Barakat.
The patented DPET
reactor-to-sheet process--skipping the drying and extrusion stages of conventional PET sheet production is said to cut energy consumption in the production of sheet by 65 per cent, and to give better optical and mechanical properties.
