Nestle Waters to make new coating to San Pellegrino PET water bottles

April 09/2012
(polyestertime) -- Nestle Waters claims that a novel silica dioxide coating added to San Pellegrino PET water bottles
will cut their weight, increase their carbon retention and increase their shelf-life by three months.

Nestle Waters said it was the first global water brand to use the coating technology, which delivers a weight reduction of up to 17% without changing the bottle shape or colour, and has been approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

A Nestle Waters spokeswoman told that the technology "allowed for a better capacity of carbonation retention and extended product shelf-life from the current 12 month period to 15 months. "The PET bottles treated with the coating guarantee indeed a perfect carbonation of the water, despite temperature changes during transport, time elapsed from the filling of the bottles up to their consumption, and finally, weather differences between destination countries," she added.

The technological advance led Nestle Waters to install two new coating machines within its 500ml bottle
production lines located at the San Pellegrino Terme Plant, in Bergamo, Italy.
