5 G Water Bottles

A fresh drink from the water dispenser is often all it takes to feel ourselves again – whether we’re at the office, in school, or at a shopping center. At Greiner Packaging, our 5-gallon water bottles made of Tritan™ ensure that people end up drinking only the best water – entirely free of plasticizers. For many years, the entire industry used polycarbonate as a standard material in the manufacture of 5-gallon water bottles. However, the chemical compound bisphenol A, or BPA for short, is used in the production of polycarbonate. 

Due to the public debate surrounding BPA, we have completely eliminated the use of this chemical for products in the food segment since 2014. Instead, all our multi-use packaging is made of the BPA-free material Tritan™. Tritan™ copolyester is manufactured by US company Eastman and is approved by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) and listed by the EFSA (European Food and Safety Association). This plastic is not just plasticizer-free but also impresses with a number of other advantages that make it a popular substitute material for glass. We work with Tritan™ in both the injection stretch blow molding and extrusion blow molding processes when producing our 5-gallon water bottles.
