Shelfplus® O2: Oxygen Scavenger masterbatch - trends in food and cosmetic packaging

This is a Past Webinar

In food products oxidation causes degradation of organoleptic properties and taste profiles, whilst in cosmetic products active ingredients such as vitamins can lose their nutritional properties.

Oxygen scavengers are used to extend product shelf life and to reduce the use of preservatives in foodstuff and cosmetics. Shelfplus® O2 is an iron based oxygen scavenger masterbatch that can directly be integrated into the packaging. Various carrier materials from polyolefins to styrenics, nylons and EVAs are available.

Latest developments in mainly flexible applications will be presented.
