The ocean shipping procedure of U.S. imports bottle jar from China

The ocean shipping procedure of U.S. imports bottle jar from China

 

In cross-border trade, there will be imports and exports of goods. American importers who want to import Chinese goods into the United States have to arrange international transportation.

 

Transnational transportation:

 

Air or sea transportation can be arranged. This depends on the quantity and weight of the goods. The sea transportation cycle is long, but the transportation price is relatively low. The air transportation cycle is short, but the price is more expensive. It should be selected according to different needs.

 

 

Container introduction: International ocean shipment is carried out through containers, which are generally divided into three types of containers: 20GP, 40GP, and 40HQ. The space they hold is also different, 20gp can hold 28cbm of goods, 40gp can hold 58cbm of goods, and 40hq can hold 65cbm of goods. If goods capacity is less than 20cbm, you can choose to ship with friends who have common needs; the cost can be understood as the AA shared type, which is what we usually call shipped out in bulk.

So if you want to import a batch of goods from China to the United States, you need to understand what processes, what qualifications are required, and what you need to pay attention to.

Next, I will tell you about the knowledge:

1. Confirm the trade terms and US importers’ receipts

The shipper firstly confirms the purchased goods, confirms the trade contract with the Chinese supplier and confirms what the trade terms are. Common trade terms are EXW and FOB.

EXW means that the Chinese factory only takes care of the delivery and does not arrange the ocean transportation. The consignee needs to arrange the import transportation and customs declaration,

FOB means that the Chinese factory will deliver the goods to the warehouse in China designated by the American importer, and the domestic consignee’s freight forwarder will arrange vessel booking and custom application.

2. Declaring ISF and AMS

What is ISF?

ISF declaration is the abbreviation of Importer Security Filing, namely “import security declaration”, also called anti-terrorism declaration. It is a requirement of the U.S. Customs for U.S. importers. This is a thing created by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to strengthen U.S. security after the “911 incident”. This is unique to the U.S. A declaration whose purpose is to improve safety supervision.

 

ISF declaration method: ISF declaration can be declared by the seller or the buyer. If the buyer declares on behalf of the buyer, then the buyer needs to declare through the freight forwarder, and the consignee needs to sign the POA authorization letter with the US agent of the freight forwarder. The freight forwarder will send the US agent information to the consignee, and will also notify the agent that it will also actively contact the consignee, and only after the POA is signed, the goods can be shipped from the port of departure.

ISF penalty: a fine of five thousand US dollars normally.

ISF declaration time limit: The electronic declaration data must be sent to the U.S. customs through the AMS or ABI system 24 hours before the goods are loaded on the ship. In terms of ISF declaration operations, importers can entrust their trusted overseas agents to declare on their behalf.

AMS declaration 

AMS is the abbreviation of the American Warehouse Receipt System.

During the transaction process, they need to be reported to the U.S. Customs through the AMS system.

The simple distinction is: AMS declarations are mainly the information in the bill of lading, and freight forwarders are more controllable during declarations.

The ISF declaration is mainly an entity in the supply chain. Part of the information is in the buyer and part of the information is in the seller, so the buyer usually declares.

3. The import operation process is detailed as follows:   

1). Obtain the necessary documents.   

The shipper provides the bill of lading, invoice and packing list of the goods of foreign customers, and if necessary, a non-wood packaging certificate or fumigation certificate is required. Provide import documents including contract (general trade) to freight forwarder after receipt.

2). Document exchanges   

Freight forwarder checks out the cargo carrier, shipping agent and place of document exchanges. And take the bill of lading to the shipping company to exchange the bill of lading. then contact the station and confirm the cost of carrying the container, the cost of removing the container, the cost of loading, and the return fee.  

3). import commodity inspection   

Through the customs commodity code book can confirm whether the goods need commodity inspection. Imported goods that need to be inspected in advance must go to the Commodity Inspection Bureau for commodity inspection. Commodity inspection also needs to be carried out as soon as possible, generally after the commodity inspection.

4). Import customs clearance   

Forwarders make correct declaration data based on the customs declaration data provided by the shipper and the container number and seal provided by the yard or trailer. The declaration materials include: invoice, packing list, bill of lading returned from shipping company, customs declaration letter of attorney, import goods declaration form, commodity inspection, animal and plant inspection, etc.  

5). Clearance by customs   

Hand over the duty payment slip to the freight forwarder, and the freight forwarder will contact the customs for clearance. That is, one time release.

6). Picking up the container   

After completing the deposit with the documents and materials and authorized by the shipping agent management department, go to the import container post to go through the procedures for picking up the container, receive the container equipment handover form, and check whether the content is correct. After the consignee has unpacked the imported goods, the empty container will be returned to the return location. After the empty container is returned to the yard, the consignee must promptly present the pledge voucher to go to the container management department to settle the container fee.  

7). Delivery   

The freight forwarder or the consignee should contact the trailer to pick up the goods at the shipping agency’s wharf and station with the documents and information. The mortgager goes to the container management department to handle the container mortgage settlement procedures.

7 types of plastic material you have to know when buy plastic bottle

7 types of plastic material you have to know when buy plastic bottle

Nowadays, there are various types of plastic bottles on the market. Consumers are dazzled. Some customers worry about the compatibility of bottles for their products, and some customers worry about the environmental protection of plastic bottles.

As the company’s sense of social responsibility increases, Many brands require or only accept recyclable plastic bottle packaging, so how to choose a high-quality plastic bottle that suits you is worth studying. Now I will provide you with several methods for your reference.

what does these number means?

In the first step, we first look at the material of the bottle. The material is very particular. Different materials can hold different products, and there are certain compatibility issues. Usually there is a label framed by a triangle symbol on the bottom of the bottle. The triangle formed by the three arrows means that the material of the bottle is ‘recyclable’, but this does not mean that it can be reused. Each bottle has its corresponding plastic bottle material type label, which is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and each number represents a type of material. If the product is made of several different materials, then what is marked is its main material. Identifying different numbers is to facilitate classification and recycling, and has nothing to do with the “safety” of the bottle. So what does this number mean?

 

Meaning of number 1, PET

 

The number 1 in the triangle at the bottom of the plastic bottle: PET polyethylene terephthalate, commonly used for mineral water bottles, carbonated beverage bottles, shampoo bottles, shower gel bottles, alcohol disinfectant bottles, etc. It is well known that beverage bottles made of this material cannot be filled with hot water. They are only suitable for warm or frozen drinks. The bottle is easily deformed if it is filled with high-temperature liquid, and releases harmful substances to the human body. It is not suitable Long-term repeated use or containing acidic substances.

 

Meaning of number 2, HDPE

The number 2 in the triangle at the bottom of the plastic bottle: HDPE high-density polyethylene, common used for medicine bottles, cleaning bottles, laundry detergent bottles, body wash bottles, shampoo bottles, disinfection bottles, plastic bags, etc.,It can withstand 110 ℃ high temperature. Plastic containers containing cleaning and bath products can be used after careful cleaning, but they are often not easy to clean and leave residues, thus becoming a breeding ground for bacteria, so it is not recommended to use them repeatedly for a long time.

 

Meaning of number 3, PVC

The number 3 in the triangle at the bottom of the plastic bottle: PVC polyvinyl chloride, common used for raincoats, building materials, plastic film, plastic boxes, pesticide bottles, etc., this kind of material has excellent plasticity and is cheap, so it is more commonly used. However, their heat-resistant temperature is low, and harmful substances may be released during high-temperature decomposition. They are even released during the manufacturing process. After toxic substances enter the human body with food, they may cause breast cancer, birth defects and other diseases in newborns. At present, containers of this material have been less used for packaging food.

 

Meaning of number 4, LDPE

The number 4 in the triangle at the bottom of the plastic bottle: LDPE polyethylene low-density polyethylene, common used for cling film, etc. Do not wrap the cling film on the surface of the food and put it into the microwave because its heat resistance is not strong. Usually, qualified PE cling film is encountered when the temperature exceeds 110°C, hot melting will occur, leaving some plastic preparations that cannot be decomposed by the human body. In addition, when food is wrapped with plastic wrap and heated, the fat in the food can easily dissolve harmful substances in the plastic wrap. Therefore, when food is put into the microwave oven, the wrapped plastic wrap must be removed first.

 

Meaning of number 5, PP

The number 5 in the triangle at the bottom of the plastic bottle: PP polypropylene, common ly used for soy milk bottles, yogurt bottles, juice drink bottles, microwave lunch boxes. With a melting point of 167°C, it is the only plastic box that can be placed in a microwave oven and can be reused after careful cleaning. It should be noted that some microwave lunch boxes, the box body is made of No. 5 PP, but the lid is not made of No. 5 PP, so it cannot be put into the microwave together with the box body. To be safe, remove the lid of the container before putting it in the microwave.

 

Meaning of number 6, PS

The number 6 in the triangle at the bottom of the plastic bottle: PS polystyrene, commonly used for bowls of instant noodle boxes and fast food boxes. Do not put it in a microwave oven to avoid the release of chemicals due to high temperature. After loading acids (such as orange juice) and alkaline substances, carcinogens will be decomposed. Avoid using fast food boxes to pack hot food. Don’t use the microwave to cook instant noodles in a bowl.

 

Meaning of number 7, PC

The number 7 in the triangle at the bottom of the plastic bottle: PC or other types, commonly used for water bottles, space cups, and baby bottles.It is easy to release the toxic substance bisphenol A, which is harmful to the human body. The water bottle marked with 7 must see whether there is a mark of BPA free (BPA free). Generally, merchants will mark it as a selling point. Found on the body or bottom of the bottle. Do not heat it when using it, and do not expose it to direct sunlight. The common drinking water plastic bottles on the market have been tested by the state and can be used safely.

In summary,  Consumers should try to avoid repeated use of aging and easily deteriorated plastic utensils, and it is best not to reuse beverage bottles for multiple times, otherwise bacteria will easily breed and there will be health risks.

Canvard Packaging Factory reminds consumers that when using plastic containers, they must read the numbers marked in the triangle at the bottom of the bottle. Only when they understand the properties of the materials can they be used in a suitable environment. What is especially important is that Plastic waste is returned to the furnace and recycled products.

Should the cosmetics company process it by itself or find a foundry?

Should the cosmetics company process it by itself or find a foundry?

Nowadays, the main production model of cosmetics is OEM, including international brands. why?

For merchants with their own cosmetics brands and merchants with mature sales channels, choosing a cosmetics processing factory to process cosmetics is very beneficial.

It can save production costs, improve product quality, reduce the market risk of enterprises, and can Innovation and many other benefits attract more and more cosmetics brands to adopt cosmetics processing mode.

Choosing a suitable cosmetics processing factory is related to the long-term rapid development in the future, so it is very important to inspect a cosmetics processing factory.

 

So, how to consider whether a foundry has the strength?

1, R&D strength The ability of a cosmetics OEM company determines the height of the product. If a cosmetics OEM factory does not even have a technical research and development center, then the strength of this factory must be evaluated, because the R&D strength determines the product quality and efficacy Good or bad! When investigating the R&D strength of the factory, we need to look at the qualifications of the R&D engineers? What is the industry experience of the R&D engineer? Does the professional engineer have a research room or professional experience in developing various types of cosmetics that meet the standards for customers? How about the equipment in the research room (laboratory)? Does it meet the R&D requirements? Is it scientific? If it is necessary to conduct stability test or heavy metal test for the product, can the laboratory be able to do it? Wait for the question.

2, Production facilities Whether production equipment, facilities and testing facilities are complete is also part of the strength of the factory. For example, does the factory have sanitary standards? Has it passed the quality management system and GMPC certification? Is it a 100,000-level production workshop? Is there a department for product quality monitoring? Is there a pure water treatment system? These production facilities can guarantee product quality and product shipment issues, which will affect the customer’s product sales strategy.

3, Factory scale China used to have many small-scale cosmetics factories, and their cosmetics were sold all over the country. Since the Food and Drug Administration implemented the two-license integration, many small factories have been closed, leaving legal compliance. Cosmetics processing factory. The size of the factory reflects the strength of the factory, how many employees it has, whether it has a professional design team, whether it has advanced equipment, etc. These details cannot be ignored.

Canvard Packaging International Co.,Ltd was founded in 2011. It is an enterprise with a factory in Guangzhou. It is a company specializing in the production of plastic bottle, plastic jar, plastic container, airless dispenser bottle, foam pump bottle, deodorant stick tube, PET bottle, Professional company of detergent bottle, ampoule bottle and other cosmetic packaging materials. Recently, I have contacted many customers who want to know this knowledge, and I hope it will be useful to everyone.

What problems should be paid attention to when purchasing cosmetic packaging materials?

What problems should be paid attention to when purchasing cosmetic packaging materials?

Almost all cosmetic manufacturers know that in addition to raw materials, cosmetic packaging materials are equally important. Packaging materials are not only containers, but also product promotion and product quality. Therefore, manufacturers must attach great importance to the purchase of packaging materials. What problems should be paid attention to when purchasing cosmetic packaging materials? Let’s look at it together.

1.Is the material “compatible”?
The “Cosmetics Safety Technical Specification 2015 Edition” stipulates that packaging materials that directly contact cosmetics should be safe, must not chemically react with cosmetics, and must not migrate or release toxic and harmful substances that are harmful to the human body. For example, heavy metals in metal packaging, plasticizers in plastic packaging bags, and bisphenol A and its derivatives dissolve into cosmetics that come into direct contact with it, threatening the quality of cosmetics and the human body. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out compatibility testing on the packaging to avoid unnecessary losses. 2. Does the printing quality pass? Cosmetic packaging requires exquisite printing and good visual beauty, so its printing quality inspection is particularly important. At present, the routine items of cosmetic packaging printing quality inspection mainly include the abrasion resistance of the printing ink layer (anti-scratch performance), ink adhesion fastness and color discrimination inspection. During the inspection process, the packaging products do not appear ink drop or deinking, etc. Qualified product.
2.Is the design reasonable? For companies, while considering the cost, they should also consider market expectations, and control the design of packaging materials, from container shape to label copywriting, from style positioning to transportation risks, from internal packaging to outsourcing, Wait, consider it all. Especially for the market characteristics and potential of the product, the basic situation of the consumer group, such as: the age of the consumer group, economic income, cultural quality and so on. If a good product does not have a suitable appearance, it will ultimately damage the overall image of the product.
3.Is the capacity standard? There are many types of skin care packaging materials and the process is more complicated. Sometimes it is inevitable that there will be a gap between the container capacity and the design standard. Therefore, before the production of the container, the characteristics of the material should be fully considered and controlled in a targeted manner. Whether the special specifications are complete, whether the appearance is beautiful, whether the vision is comfortable, etc. When negotiating business, many companies often only know that they are produced according to the model. In fact, this is incomplete, because the material body is different, and the net content of the same container is different.
4.Is the package temperature resistant? Some cosmetic inner packages are made of composite films, which use adhesives to bond films of different materials together, and different materials have different shrinkage rates, so when the temperature changes (regardless of Whether it is high temperature or low temperature), composite film bags will appear delamination and surface wrinkles. Therefore, the flexible packaging must be tested for temperature resistance.
5.Is the heat-sealing edge quality resistant? Heat sealing strength is one of the important indicators to measure the quality of packaging. Flexible packaging requires a certain degree of strength and tightness in the seal, and can withstand the pressure of a certain weight of filler to ensure that the packaging does not crack and leak during transportation. (1) Check the tightness. Use an ultrasonic sealing tester or use a vacuum method to observe the tightness of the heat-sealed edge of the flexible packaging bag. (2) Check the heat seal strength. When testing the heat-sealing strength, samples of the same width should be cut from the heat-sealed part of the flexible packaging bag in the vertical direction, and then the two ends of the strip-shaped sample should be fixed on the tension device and sent to the fixture for stretching, and the failure heat should be calculated. The maximum force value of the sealing part. It should be noted that in addition to the tensile strength of the blank packaging material, the influence of the contents on the heat-sealed part must also be considered. (3) Check the compressive strength.
The compressive strength of the flexible package can be tested using a press. Place the sample with the contents on the sample table, slowly press it to the required pressure, and hold it for 15 seconds. If there is no edge seal cracking, it is qualified. As for the amount of pressure to be applied, it depends on the situation. Different terminal enterprises and different products may have different requirements.
6.Is the package tearing smoothly? Most of the packaging bags of facial masks have wedge-shaped easy-to-tear openings. When consumers open the product, they must ensure that the opening process is smooth. It should be noted that during the tear test, the clamping force provided to the material must be large enough so that the material will not “slip” during the test. However, when consumers actually open the flexible packaging bag, if the force fit is not good, the “slip” phenomenon may occur when the grip is not strong enough, which may cause difficulty in opening. Therefore, in packaging design, packaging designers must comprehensively consider these properties of flexible packaging materials and find the best solution.
7.Is the copy standard? The country has very strict label management on cosmetics, and must be strictly implemented in accordance with the standards, especially for characteristic products. Some ingredients and their indicators must not have the slightest error or discrepancy. Otherwise, no matter how good the packaging materials are, they cannot be used. In addition, in terms of the efficacy of the product, we must carefully scrutinize and review it carefully to avoid false content, avoid banned words, and avoid consumer ambiguity.
8. Does the proportion of defective products exceed the standard? Cosmetic packaging materials, especially outsourcing materials, are often produced manually, such as cartons, handbags, etc., due to the low degree of automation, inevitably defective or defective products will appear. Some machine-produced glass bottles, hoses, etc., will have problems of one kind or another in terms of color difference, missing print, shape, etc. Therefore, these problems must be considered when purchasing. If the ratio of qualified products to defective products does not exceed the basic standard during the package material inspection, then the packaging material purchase is successful, but when ordering packaging materials, the quantity should be increased appropriately to ensure that it is sufficient and there is room for selection.

Introduction of plastic bottles in cosmetic packaging containers

                               Introduction of plastic bottles in cosmetic packaging containers
1.General materials of plastic bottles: PP, PE, K material, AS, ABS, PMMA, PET, PVC, PETG
1)Forming method: PET bottles are formed in two steps, the tube is injection molded, and the finished bottle is blow molded . Others such as PP, PE, and PVC bottles are usually formed in one step, that is, blow bottles. Acrylic packaging is an injection-molded bottle, which has poor chemical resistance and generally cannot be directly filled with lotion. Therefore, acrylic is usually only used as the outer shell of the packaging. The inner liner of the product is usually made of pp material, but the acrylic packaging material has high permeability. It looks very upscale.
2)Bottle mouth standard: generally 16mm, 18mm, 22mm, 24mm, 28mm, 40mm.
3)Printing process: silk screen, hot stamping, hot silver, electroplating, frosted effect, etc.
4)Bottle cap selection: generally with inner lid, pull The lid and inner plug are also equipped with a small spoon or a dropper, which mainly considers its tightness and ease of use.

Can the bottles containing disinfectant be recycled?

Can the bottles containing disinfectant be recycled?

I believe that every household has disinfectant, so can the bottles containing disinfectant at home be recycled?

First of all, there are two types of disinfectants commonly used at home: one is 84 disinfectant (also known as bleach), and the other is clothes sterilization disinfectant. The main active ingredient of 84 disinfectant is sodium hypochlorite. The generation of hypochlorous acid in the water has a strong oxidizing effect on the cells of microorganisms, destroying the ecological environment in the cells and causing cell death. The strong oxidizing properties of hypochlorous acid can also cause the polymer of organic pigments to be oxidized and lose their color. As a result, 84 disinfectant is sometimes used as a bleaching agent. Hypochlorous acid has a pungent smell, so we can easily smell the smell of 84 disinfectant. The main effective ingredient of the commonly used clothes disinfectant is p-chloro-m-xylenol, which achieves the sterilization effect by denaturing protein, and has the killing effect on most Gram-positive and negative bacteria, fungi and molds. The general dosage is 1 bottle cap to 1-2L of water. Because it is slightly soluble in water, when diluted with water, we will see that the solution becomes milky white and opaque. Para-chloro-m-xylenol is not oxidizing like 84, and it is relatively less irritating to the human body, so it is mostly used for disinfection of textiles and skin.

In addition, the 84 disinfectant bottles are mostly opaque PE materials, which belong to the PE bottles in the Aobei 14 classification. There are two kinds of clothes disinfectant bottles, transparent PET material and opaque PE material, which belong to PET bottle and PE bottle respectively.

However, due to the special nature of the disinfectant, although both materials can be recycled, it must be ensured that the bottles are rinsed clean before recycling and there is no residue.

Eight categories of injection molds

Eight categories of injection molds

 (1) When the single parting surface injection mold is opened, the movable mold and the fixed mold are separated to take out the plastic part, which is called a single parting surface mold or a double-plate mold. It is the simplest and most basic form of injection molds. It can be designed as a single-cavity injection mold or a multi-cavity injection mold according to needs. It is the most widely used injection mold. (2) Double parting surface injection mold The double parting surface injection mold has two parting surfaces. Compared with the single parting surface injection mold, the double parting surface injection mold adds a middle part that can be moved locally in the fixed mold part. Plate (also called movable gate plate, on which there are gates, runners and other parts and components required by fixed mold), so it is also called three-plate (movable template, intermediate plate, fixed template) injection mold, it is commonly used For single-cavity or multi-cavity injection molds that are fed at a point gate, when the mold is opened, the intermediate plate is separated from the fixed template at a fixed distance on the guide post of the fixed mold, so that the gating system can be taken out between the two templates Aggregate. The double parting surface injection mold has a complex structure, high manufacturing cost, and difficult parts processing. Generally, it is not used for the molding of large or extra-large plastic products. (3) Injection mold with lateral parting and core pulling mechanism. When the plastic part has side holes or undercuts, it is necessary to use a laterally movable core or slider for molding. After injection molding, the movable mold first moves down for a certain distance, and then the inclined section of the bending pin fixed on the fixed template forces the slider to move outward, and at the same time, the push rod of the demolding mechanism pushes the pusher plate to make the plastic part self-molding Take off the core. (4) Injection molds with movable forming parts due to the special structure of plastic parts, the injection mold is required to be equipped with movable forming parts, such as movable punches, movable concave molds, movable inserts, movable thread cores or The molding ring, etc., can be moved out of the mold together with the plastic part during demolding, and then separated from the plastic part. (5) Automatic thread unloading injection mold For plastic parts with threads, when automatic demolding is required, a rotatable thread core or ring can be set on the mold, and the mold opening action or the rotation mechanism of the injection molding machine can be used, or Set up a special transmission device to drive the threaded core or threaded ring to rotate, so as to get out of the plastic part. (6) No-runner injection mould No-runner injection mould refers to the method of adiabatic heating of the runner to keep the plastic between the nozzle and the cavity of the injection moulding machine in a molten state, so that there is no pouring system when the mould is opened and the plastic part is taken out. Aggregate. The former is called adiabatic runner injection mold, and the latter is called hot runner injection mold. (7) Right-angle injection molds Right-angle injection molds are only suitable for angle injection molding machines. The difference from other injection molds is that the feeding direction of this type of mold is perpendicular to the opening and closing directions during molding. His main channel is opened on both sides of the parting surface of the moving and fixed molds, and its cross-sectional area is usually constant. This is different from the molds used in other injection molding machines. The end of the main channel is to prevent injection molding machines. For the wear and deformation of the nozzle and the inlet end of the main runner, replaceable runner inserts can be set. (8) In most injection molds, the demolding device of the injection mold on the fixed mold is installed on the side of the movable mold, which facilitates the work of the ejector device in the mold opening and closing system of the injection molding machine. In actual production, because some plastic parts are limited by the shape, it is better to leave the plastic part on the side of the fixed mold for molding. This makes the plastic part out of the mold, and it is necessary to set a release on the side of the fixed mold. mechanism.

The performance of plastic mold steel

The performance of plastic mold steel

The performance of plastic mold steel requires plastic products to be molded by injection (injection), compression (compression molding), extrusion, injection, and blow molding. The plastic mold components are divided into two categories. One type is structural parts, including gating system, guide parts, fixed formwork, ejector mechanism parts, support parts, etc. The selected materials are generally medium and low carbon carbon structural steel or alloy structural steel and carbon tool steel. Standard products are available in the parts market; the other type is molded parts, including cavities, cores, inserts, etc., which are the key components of directly molded plastic products. The structure of the molded part is complex, the size of the fine sulfur joint is required to be close and the surface is smooth. Although the strength and toughness required by the material are not as high as the cold work mold and the hot work mold, it must have specific performance requirements.

Will heating plastic beverage bottles cause cancer?

Will heating plastic beverage bottles cause cancer?

Plastic beverage bottles are not carcinogenic.

The current PET plastic bottles use food-grade environmentally friendly raw materials, which can be recycled and do not produce carcinogens. The plastic beverage bottles seen in daily life are all blow molded from pet plastic. But ordinary plastic bottles cannot contain high-temperature water. Because the PET bottle is relatively thin, when the bottle body is heated to about 90°, due to the rearrangement of the PET molecular chain and the internal stress, the bottle body will shrink and deform, but the deformed plastic bottle does not release toxic substances.

Moreover, you cannot drink water from hot deformed plastic bottles, so the public need not worry too much about this issue. Rather than believing in all kinds of inexplicable claims that cause cancer, it is better to develop a healthy lifestyle, such as active exercise, staying up late, and eating properly.
