ColorMatrix™ Ultimate™ UV Light Barrier for PET

From beverages and condiments to personal care and household products, you need the right protection against the harmful effects of ultraviolet light. UV rays can cause common dyes used in beverages and personal care products to lose color and can initiate oxidation reactions with various types of vitamins that could result in taste and odor changes.

ColorMatrix™ Ultimate™ UV Light Barriers effectively block ultraviolet light transmission, protecting your product and brand integrity during storage, transportation and in the retail environment.

Highlights

Container lightweighting and recyclability

  • ColorMatrix™ Ultimate™ UV does not impact the clarity of the PET container
  • Product integrity can be maintained, even in lightweight containers, and containers are fully recyclable
  • This is the only UV barrier additive for PET that is currently recognized by Association of Plastics Recyclers and the European PET Bottle Platform for having no negative impact on the recycling stream
