Phoenix Technologies, Bowling Green, Ohio, launched LNO w resin, a new food-grade, melt-extruded rPET pellet with good color and cost attributes.
The new rPET product targets both blow molded and thermoformed applications for water, cold-filled beverages, deli trays, fruit tubs and more. LNO w resin is also ideal for packages that aren’t subjected to heat (either in the filling process or during consumer usage) or need the rigorous performance attributes required by certain food applications. It can be used at levels up to 100% or blended with virgin PET.
Additionally, the resin is ideally suited for personal care packaging applications which can benefit from food-grade rPET attributes which align with corporate philosophy and marketing objectives.
