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.

- Product integrity can be maintained, even in lightweight containers, and containers are fully recyclable
