ColorMatrix Amosorb 4020G offers up to 50% lower haze and reduces impact on the PET recycle stream compared to previous grades, while maintaining the same reliable active oxygen scavenging performance.

It not only helps in reducing haze but also reduces the impact on recycled PET (rPET), as it reduces yellowing by 50% during the mechanical recycling process.

PolyOne testing shows that ColorMatrix Amosorb 4020G is one of the most robust oxygen scavengers for PET rigid containers, with negligible effects on efficacy for the rPET grades tested, while other competitive materials lost almost all oxygen scavenging ability with rPET content as low as 20%.
