PET, Polyethylene Terephthalate, is a thermoplastic polymer resin that is often used in items such as beverage and food packaging, synthetic fibers, and thermal insulation. It is sometimes combined with glass particles to create stronger plastic that can be injection molded and used for parts in automotive and electronic industries. PET items are often recycled to create carpet fibers or clothing/bedding fiber.
