Packaging materials: food plastic packaging has a huge market share
Milliken Chemicals Inc. introduced ClearShield, a UV absorber for PET bottles, which is a homogeneous liquid polymer for PET packaging that blocks all UV light up to 390 nm. . The product is easy to use, can be used directly, does not need to be further compounded into a liquid or solid masterbatch, can be added with the resin during molding or added during the preforming stage.
When adding ClearShield PET, there is no fouling of the soiled equipment and no delays in production time for injection molding and blow molding. This product is a clear polymer that does not affect the transparency, gloss and bottle quality of PET bottles and has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for most food and beverage packaging.
