  • 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.
