These come in several sizes and very innovative flavors. All the hot fill bottles have a 1881 neck finish that works with standard 1881 closures. The bottle is designed for Nitro Hot Fill, in which a small amount of nitrogen gas is injected into the top of the filled bottle to stop it from deforming as the contents cool down.
Project: Xiwang Edible oil Bottle
Application: Edible oil
Bottle volume: from 3L to 5L
Project Brief: The customer asked for a bottle with a handle that was easy to handle and reminded of the shape or texture of corn, from which the oil is extracted.
SIPA development: SIPA has created a bottle with an integrated 'in-mold' handle: the plastic handle is inserted into a special blow mold and the bottle is blown 'around' the handle. This way the handle is fully integrated with the bottle for better handling and pouring experience. The cap has also been customized for this product, designed with a round profile, fully integrated with the shape of the bottle and for a better opening

Project Brief: Monini S.p.A. asked SIPA to develop the new line of 'Premi e Sremi' bottles with the aim of developing a line of practical, light, easy to handle, unbreakable PET containers that could be taken anywhere and with particular attention to sustainability and aesthetic quality that distinguishes the product range of the Italian brand.
SIPA development: Developed in 2 formats of 450ml and 650ml in PET, the 'Premi e Spremi' family by Monini has been completely designed and engineered by SIPA which has paid great attention to the development of an aesthetic with details of absolute quality comparable to containers in glass. The Monini 'Premi and Squeezer' line was developed specifically for the SIPA SFL 4/4 linear platform.
Project: Olden water
Application: Flavoured Water
Bottle volume: 0.5L -1.25 L
Project Brief: The client wanted to develop a new family of premium feeling containers for still, sparkling and flavored water.
SIPA development: SIPA has developed the bottle design, the mockup and the molds for the rotary blow molding machine already own by the customer. The formats developed are: 500ml, 650ml Sport, 1250ml
Application: Mineral Water and CSD Flavored Water
Project Brief: Hartwall is the most popular Finnish water brand. The project includes the redesign of the classic bottle for the Novelle brand of sparkling water and water flavor. The goal was to develop a container with a disruptive, ergonomic and modern design, which marked an aesthetic turning point within the Hartwall product portfolio.
SIPA development: SIPA helped Hartwall with the design, engineering and prototyping of the new bottles for the Novelle brand. Both formats, used for sparkling and flavored mineral water, have been successfully tested in the SIPA prototyping laboratory in Italy. SIPA also supplied a complete set of molds to be used on the SFR24 rotary stretch-blow molding system already in use by Hartwall.
Project: Tritan™ Bottle
Application: Sparkling water - CSD
Bottle volume: 1Lt
Application: Water-carbonated soft drinks
Bottle volume: 1 liter
Project Brief: The request for PTI first and SIPA later was to develop a Tritan ™ preform that could be produced on standard systems and then blown with machines available on the market. Later a thick-walled bottle had to be developed that would hold up during the blowing phase. The preform and bottle production systems were supplied by SIPA.
SIPA development: Prototyping and performance evaluations were conducted to ensure safe pressure application and a wall thickness of at least 0.7mm, required for bottle integrity after undergoing multiple pressurization cycles. SIPA was able to design a blow molding machine with sufficient lamp power to heat a very thick preform (around 140 ° C) without having to transfer the heat of the injection for blowing.
Application: Mineral Water
Bottle volume: from 500ml to 5 l
Project Brief: The challenge was to create attractive, light and performing bottles with elegant and sophisticated geometries for two new ranges, one for the mass market and one for the premium sector
SIPA development: "SIPA contributed with an excellent design and engineering job, working together with an external design agency that took care of the labels and corporate identity", says Vítor Hugo Gonçalves, CEO of Água Monchique. “The challenge was to create very attractive and at the same time light bottles, with geometries that gave them an elegant and sophisticated look. We have succeeded in our goal of creating bottles in different formats that maintain a family feeling ".

It had to be possible to wash in the dishwasher (max temperature 55C °).
SIPA development: The intervention of SIPA was inserted in the context of design and re-engineering of the container which saw interventions on the profile of the bottle designed to make possible the production in rPET with single-stage technology (injection-stretch-blow molding). SIPA also took care of the prototyping of the preform and container on the ECS SP single-stage system.
