New PETG grades with enhanced transparency for glass-like applications 28th February 2018
VELOX GmbH, one of Europe’s leading solution providers of raw material specialities for the plastics, composites, additives and paint & coatings industries, is offering a new, enhanced range of Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol (PETG) for injection moulding and film extrusion applications.
VELOX’s long-term partner SK Chemicals (South Korea) has recently modified its bio-based ECOZEN co-polyester lines, significantly improving their transparency and performance. In particular, the cosmetic packaging industry, food, and household & consumer goods markets may benefit from the new development.
“The new ECOZEN portfolio is further adding value to the needs of the cosmetic and packaging industries by providing a highly transparent, heat-as well as chemical resistant polymer”, comments François Minec, General Manager at VELOX. “The colour tone of the material has been drastically improved, having become perfectly suited for clear crystal- or glass-like applications.”
ECOZEN is an eco-friendly solution, containing an appropriate amount of bio-mass and is free of Bisphenol A. Further benefits of the material are easy processing, energy efficiency, high printability, excellentrecyclability as well as impact strength.
