*PET bottles are widely used because of their light weight and physical durability. However, PET’s relative permeability has historically made it not ideal for sensitive contents like Sake. Lately, various gas barrier enhancing technologies have developed to solve the problem, The DLC (or Diamond-Like Carbon) coating applied to the inner surface of the bottle. Prevents the inflow and the outflow of oxygen, carbon dioxide and aroma compounds much more effectively than the conventional, uncoated PET bottle.
