UV and Light Blocking for rPET

ColorMatrix™ Ultimate™ UV390R Light Barrier 

UV Absorbing Additive Technology Designed for Improved Recyclability

Part of the ColorMatrix™ Ultimate™ range, Colormatrix™ Ultimate™ UV390R is a patented liquid light-blocking additive formulated for rPET that can help extend the shelf life of UV-sensitive food, beverage, personal care, and home cleaning products.

The formulation is specifically designed for improved recyclability and combines UV content protection with improved processability. This ensures that packaging with higher usage rates of rPET can maintain adequate UV barrier functionality and improved rPET processability. With an improved reheat performance, the solution also aids in reducing carbon footprint, and has no impact on the recyclability stream.
