Protect against photodegradation with low mineral loading
Ampacet Safari White PET masterbatches impart a high level of opacity while dramatically reducing mineral loading—less than 4% in PET bottles. It is also suited for the preservation of ultra-high temperature (UHT) processed milk which has an unrefrigerated shelf life of six to nine months. Compared with conventional preforms loaded with 10% TiO2, one-liter bottles produced with 6.5% of Ampacet Safari White (less than 4% of mineral loading) perform better in preventing light transmission while allowing throughput increases and reducing the number of IR heating elements. This new technology helps to decrease energy consumption and the overall environmental impact of preform stretch-blow molding operations. Because Safari White is NIR transparent it allows sorting with near infrared optical sensors and recycling.
