VELOX GmbH has offered a new, enhanced range of Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol (PETG) for injection molding and film extrusion applications. VELOX’ long-term partner SK Chemicals (South Korea) has recently modified its bio-based ECOZEN co-polyester lines, significantly improving their transparency and performance. Especially the cosmetic packaging industry, the food as well as household and consumer goods markets will benefit from the new development.

Adding Value to the Packaging Industry


François Minec, General Manager at VELOX, commented:
“The new ECOZEN portfolio is further adding value to the needs of the cosmetic and packaging industries by providing a highly transparent, heat- as well as chemical resistant polymer. The color tone of the material has been drastically improved, having become perfectly suited for clear crystal- or glass-like applications.”

Key Properties of ECOZEN


Besides, ECOZEN is an eco-friendly solution, containing an appropriate amount of bio-mass and is free of Bisphenol A. Further benefits of the material are easy processing, energy efficiency, high printability, excellent recyclability as well as impact strength.

VELOX provides the new range in nearly all European countries.
