The Monolayer Barrier


PolyShieldTM is a PET barrier resin which provides
excellent oxygen and carbon dioxide barrier in
combination with outstanding clarity for tinted
bottles when blended with MXD6 at the injection
machine
PET - MXD6 blend
Monolayer bottles
Active O2 scavenging
Passive CO2 barrier
Excellent clarity

The Polyshield - Clarity


Superior clarity is achieved by significantly
reducing the size of the barrier platelets
through applying an innovative compatibilizer

O2 Ingress Monitoring
Multilayer Bottle
Some multilayer bottles show
significant O2 ingress after a
very short time at the base,
neck and finish
Closures without barrier liner
are a source of significant
