Neden rPET?

Why rPET?

RPET stands for Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate, also known as Recycled Polyester.It is strong, water-resistant, color-fast, lightweight, wrinkle resistant, and of course, environmentally friendly!

• 90% less water is used in making recycled polyester versus polyester

• RPET requires 70% less energy than virgin fiber production

• Recycling one plastic bottle saves the equivalent of 3 hours of energy from a 60w light bulb

• 1 LB. of RPET can keep 30 water bottles out of landfill

Screen printing is the most common and cost-efficient printing technology. This technique is suitable for the positioned printing of single or multiple color logos in fixed (Pantone) colors. With screen printing, it is possible to print a rasterized logo, but it is not possible to print shades, gradients or photoprints. You can print to a max. coverage of 30 to 40% of the surface

Sublimation printing is a technique that uses heat sensitive inks, it can be used for single or multiple color prints with an all-over coverage of ink (up to 100% of the surface). In addition, it is ideally suitable for photographic images, patterns or artwork including logos with gradients.


Recycled polyester has the exact same properties as conventionally manufactured polyester.RPET produces a smaller carbon footprint and also contributes to a reduction in plastic waste.
