EATONTOWN, NJ - Novapak has introduced a new PET decanter style container in 12 oz. and 18 oz. sizes for condiments, soups, sauces, fruits, vegetables and other hot-fill applications.

Both containers are molded of monolayer PET resin and can be filled at temperatures to 185°F (85°C). The 12 oz. container (Mold # 1071) is 6.919" high and 2.410" in diameter, has a 38MM VAJ neck, and weighs 27 grams.
