The vertical stress lines on PET (a harder material) will open up with hot liquids PET will also start to deform above 90°C. ...

However, in this case, I'd say it comes down to temperature resistance: polyester (PET or PETE) does not do well at high temperatures, PP does. A reusable cup for microwave use is going to have hot ...
