Laser+® UV
Ultra Violet Container
PET Resin

LASER+® UV: The only resin with the power to stop light in its tracks At 390 nanometers, it's the most effective integrated UV barrier available in a PET resin. The only resin of its kind with single-pellet solution technology, Laser+®UV eliminates the need for extra steps or additives in the PET conversion process.


Laser+<sup>®</sup>W<br /> Water Bottle<br />PET Resin

Laser+®W
Water Bottle
PET Resin

LASER+®W: For once, being tasteless can actually pay off Bottled water can be a tough test for any resin. But with its low acetaldehyde level, Laser+®W helps assure that all the consumer tastes is water. Its lower intrinsic viscosity speeds injection times without sacrificing performance.


Laser+ <sup>®</sup>HS<br /> Heat Set Container <br />PET Resin

Laser+ ®HS
Heat Set Container
PET Resin

LASER+® HS: The resin that takes the heat, without showing the strain. Higher glass transition temperature, increased sidewall crystallinity, and greater vacuum resistance all combine to set a new standard in hot-fill performance. Like all DAK Americas resin, Laser+® HS is available with up to 390 nanometers of UV protection.
