Plastic Technologies Inc: Bottle technology offers UV barrier for dairy applications
Plastic Technologies’ oPTI™ lightweight foamed PET container blow molding process is available for dairy applications via both stock and custom options.
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.
