Longer shelf life: PlasmaPlus® nano-coating improves barrier properties of plastic packaging
shelf life of soft
drinks in polyethylene terephthalate
bottles is greatly limited by the barrier properties of PET, in
particular when it is under pressure, such as from carbonation. If
the packaging leaks CO2
or if oxygen from outside can penetrate it, that will change the
flavor and quality of the soft drink.
Plasma treatment inside of a PET bottle
Longer shelf life due to PlasmaPlus® barrier-coating
has developed a nano-coating for the soft drink industry that is
transparent like glass and yet flexible and shock and friction
resistant. This nano-coating significantly reduces diffusion and
extends the shelf life of the soft drink. The coating is applied
using the innovative and cost-effective PlasmaPlus®
process and can be applied on both the inside and outside of the
same improved barrier property provides a solution for the
pharmaceuticals industry as well when this nano-coating is applied to
plastic packaging to extend the shelf life of medicines and ensure
their long-term active ingredient properties.
