Improved stability by up to 25%
The new geometry of the completely flat StarLITE HPC base is cleverly structured. Its new anti-rocking design is based on a 360-degree continuous contact surface which improves tilt angle and may be combined with structural ribs and oval push-up. “The doubled sitting surface and the balanced stretching ratios between small and large sides enable better material distribution, while avoiding base sagging,” explains Laurent Naveau, Packaging expert at Sidel. This oval shape achieves an optimum performance level, drastically improving empty or filled container stability by up to 25%. This helps increase production uptime, with better container stability on conveyors in comparison with existing major flat PET container bases, and also improves consumer experience.
