Glass-like O2 scavenger debuts in ketchup bottle.
Introduced in 2005, DiamondClear reportedly offers the same clarity as standard PET and has barrier performance similar to Monoxbar, Constar's other monolayer barrier system. When blended with PET, DiamondClear has greater clarity than Monoxbar and other competing oxygen scavengers, according to Scott Pleune, vp. of marketing and business development. "We feel this will be the ultimate monolayer barrier solution for oxygen barrier in hot-fill food and juice containers," he asserts.
Other grades are in development for other food and beverage applications. Constar will use the technology in North America and may pursue licensing agreements outside the U.S. Tel:(215) 552-3700 * www.constar.net
