- Metallocene-based PP specially developed for ISBM technology
- Highly-effective oxygen barrier for long shelf life
- Thermally stable to temperatures exceeding 100°C
Total and RPC Promens Consumer Corby have launched a new multilayer PP/EVOH/PP jar using ISBM (Injection Stretch Blow Moulding) technology. The jar features a combination of effective barrier structure and exceptional high clarity and gloss.
Metallocene-based PP specially developed for ISBM technology
RPC Promens is using a special metallocene-based PP specially developed for ISBM technology. Together with the development of a new manufacturing process, this has allowed RPC Promens Corby to produce multilayer containers that maintain their highly-effective oxygen barrier for long ambient shelf life, while delivering very good clarity. The containers are thermally stable to temperatures exceeding 100°C for pasteurization and sterilization. A number of popular retail jar sizes are being developed with additional sizes planned for the future. Caps, also supplied by RPC, are manufactured in Polypropylene leading to a mono material pack, which facilitates recycling.
This barrier technology opens up opportunities in the retail sector, in particular markets such as cook-in sauces, instant coffee, ready meals, fruits and baby foods, among others.
