Polyester / PET is important to the worldwide plastic industry. Many products that we use on a daily basis are made from Polyester / PET, such as the containers we drink from or the carpet we walk on. Polyester / PET is used to produce plastic resins and fibers that have widespread use in plastic containers, carpeting, textiles, films and laminates, foam construction materials and high strength cord.
