A New SIOx Barrier for Small Bottles and Coffee Capsules

Cavonic SiOx coating has, until now, been only applicable to open mouth containers. The new 2.0 version greatly reduces the volume which must be evacuated out of the chamber. This significantly lowers the capital cost and increases the containers per hour which can be coated. It also enables, for the first time, the barrier coating of small PET and HDPE bottles at high volume very cost effectively with complete recyclability. Examples will show the range of applications which can be coated, the improvement in barrier that can be achieved and the cost /1000 bottles.
