Closing the loop with recycled PET


Closing the loop with recycled PET

It starts with a sheet of recycled PET made from post-consumer plastic bottles. Using the well-established thermoforming process, the material is gently heated and moulded into thin-walled packaging products, enhancing the user experience with intricate features such as hinged lids.

Thermoforming is a fast, reliable manufacturing process that makes it easy to deliver packaging solutions you can count on.

Injection moulding

Recyclable rigid PP packaging

Utilising injection moulding, Bonson is capable of producing a high volume with superior quality. During the process, melted plastic is pressed into a custom mould where the container is shaped to your exact specifications, offering highly flexible product design and precision manufacturing.

Our Bonson Solutions division features a wide range of packaging solutions that are designed and manufactured here in New Zealand.

Enhance shelf appeal with in-mould labelling

In-mould labelling (IML) is a superior decoration process where a label is placed in a mould before the plastic container is formed. This process removes the need for an adhesive as the label fuses with the container wall during injection moulding, allowing seamless integration into your manufacturing line.

Utilising IML, our award winning design team can help you create unique customised packaging.
