Pay attention to surface energy. Different plastic bottles have different surface energy levels which means that you shall find an adhesive which will match with the surface energy of the bottle. Those with high surface energy such as PET and PVC work for label adhesives better as they manage to penetrate the entire surface and create a highly available bonding area. With low surface energy such as HDPE and PP, label peeling and weak bond is possible.
