Oxygen reacts with packaged drinks and alters them, often to the failure of the packaging and product. Even tiny amounts of oxygen ingress or a lack of C02 retention can cause products to spoil while on the shelf. valOR® barriers from Valspar, help preserve the freshness of beer, juices, teas, and much more.
valOR® barrier additives are specially designed to provide superior oxygen-scavenging, barrier performance and compatibility with PET. By using a barrier, customers can make their PET containers lightweight, reduce costs and extend shelf-life.
Easy injection molding processes and minimal production downtime
valOR® is easy to run in your injection molding process. It does not require an inert atmosphere and runs with minimal nozzle build-up. We manufacture products using a comprehensive program, designed to reduce the risk of contamination, thus minimising your production downtime and scrap rates.
