Five grams for 500 milliliters: with its Factor 100 half-liter PET bottle the KHS Group presents an extremely lightweight container. The lightest 0.5-liter PET bottle for still water known to KHS to date is the result of a cooperation between KHS and Canadian injection molding machine manufacturer and world market leader Husky. The innovative design is perfectly adapted to suit its load and gives users huge material savings with the best possible stability.
The bottle’s working title of Factor 100 is based on the fact that at just five grams the bottle weighs only one hundredth of its volume of 500 milliliters. “Compared to what was previously the lightest bottle on the international market to date, the new bottle allows a huge reduction in materials of about a third,” explains Christian Rommel, project engineer for Bottles & Shapes™ at KHS Corpoplast.
