CLEVELAND – 2020年4月28日 – PolyOne today announced the launch of ColorMatrix™ Amosorb™ 4020G, a non-nylon based, low-haze oxygen scavenger for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) rigid packaging.
与之前的等级相比，新的 4020G 等级最多可将雾化度降低 50% 并减少对 PET 回收流的影响，同时保持同样可靠的活性氧清除性能。
PET is a popular choice for food and beverage packaging, affording high clarity with design flexibility, and can be easily recycled multiple times, unlike alternative packaging materials. 通常会在 PET 包装中加入添加剂，以帮助保护内容物并延长保质期，但它们会降低包装的透明度。这反过来又会影响消费者对产品外观和品牌价值的看法。
ColorMatrix Amosorb 4020G not only helps reduce haze, but also reduces the impact on recycled PET (rPET), as it reduces yellowing by 50 percent during the mechanical recycling process.
To support the move toward a circular economy, governments are legislating increased levels of recycled material in single-use packaging. For example, an EU directive for use of rPET in beverage bottles will increase from 25 percent in 2025 to 30 percent in 2030. As a result, brand owners need to ensure the oxygen scavengers used in their PET bottles maintain efficacy as increasing levels of rPET are introduced. 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 percent.
ColorMatrix Amosorb 4020G is available with applicable regulatory approvals.
