New barrier plastic packaging materials advancing rapidly
By Don Rosato
It is important for food packaging to provide good protection against factors crucial to product quality to ensure product shelf life. Depending on product sensitivity, it is vital to provide food packaging protection with proper barrier components. Barrier films often consist of multilayers or coated films designed to be impervious to gas and moisture migration, as single-layer films are in general quite permeable to most gases. Various approaches can be taken to improve barrier properties in the plastics packaging sector.
