What is PET plastic, and why is it safe for use in alkalife plastic containers?PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is a clear, tough polymer that provides an excellent barrier against oxygen and carbon dioxide. Because of those properties, it is the plastic material of choice for food and beverage packaging worldwide.
Consistent with studies by regulators and independent research groups, a report in 2000, from the International Life Sciences Institute, indicates that “PET itself is biologically inert if ingested, is dermally safe during handling, and is not a hazard if inhaled.”
We understand many are concerned with leaching of chemicals in the water. In taking into account these concerns, we take the following measures to minimise any leaching of chemicals if at all:
- All our products are distributed in closed vehicles to minimise contact with sunlight or heated conditions;
- Once water is bottled at the source, it is delivered to our storage as soon as possible, usually the same day or next day;
- Water delivered to our storage is distributed immediately and is not stored for prolonged periods so water is fresh.
