BP Polymers Introduces Kortrax® Barrier Resin for HDPE Containers
More than a year in development, Kortrax® BR is now launched for Baritainer® HDPE plastic bottles, jerry cans, drums and intermediate bulk containers (IBC).
By: BP Polymers
Kortrax® utilizes the same platform as Quoral® - a polyamide base – with the addition of other polymers to improve both the chemical permeability performance profile and the oxygen transfer rate (OTR) of HDPE containers. Kortrax® constructed containers, trade marked as Baritainers®
Now with the new Kortrax® BR, food applications requiring a barrier resin to prevent both permeation and oxygen contamination, may now be pursued with HDPE mono-la yer Kortrax® barrier containers. Kortrax® BR is FDA, EU and USP 661 compliant.
Another new feature for Kortrax® BR is the addition of an optical tracer. With Kortrax® BR, it is possible to identify its presence within the Baritainer® using a UV flashlight to confirm both the presence and distribution of Kortrax® within the walls of the HDPE matrix. Thus, the end user is assured that Kortrax® BR is present and acting as a barrier to the liquid product packaged within the walls of the HDPE container.
