The process enables up to 50% improvement in ultraviolet (UV) barrier when compared to traditional monolayer PET or HDPE dairy bottles, according to the company. The first stock container is 300 ml (10-oz.) and features a tall, square profile, with a 38 mm finish.  Designed without additive because additives can limit package recycling.  Containers also have a unique surface feel and provide tactile “traction” which minimizes slipping.  The process blow molds details more prominently which enables decorations (embossed logos, art elements) to stand out better.
