As the consumer's container of choice for microwave applications, High-barrier plastic container is the ideal package for food sterilization and pasteurization. PP/EVOH/PP material delivers the shelf stable and preservative-free food contents that do not require refrigeration before opening. High-barrier PP is ideal for products requiring extended shelf life as it mainly minimises the transfer of oxygen - by using EVOH as the chosen barrier material. EVOH also protects food from outside odours therefore retaining flavour. High-barrier containers can withstand temperatures within the range of +2c to + 125c and is resistant to water, salt and acid solutions.
Good barrier properties to water vapor, gases and aromas. High resistance to acids, oils, and fats. Good resistance to dry and wet heat (Retorting). Microwaveable up to 125c.
