PCR boasts the barrier, impact and compatibility of virgin resin and containers made using PCR can be frosted, decorated and labelled. While O.BERK admits that PCR can yellow a bottle or jar, it reassures clients that this unwanted effect vanishes when colourant is added. Steel cans, aluminium containers and glass bottles, all of which have high recycling rates, are also available.
