Ultraviolet (UV) light is a threat to packaged products like beverages, food and consumer goods. It can affect and alter their formulation, color, taste and nutritional value, dramatically reduce shelf life and impact brand reputation. However, traditional UV protection can be problematic: opaque packaging prevents consumers from seeing inside, while additives in the contents run counter to the “clean label” movement. Today, there is an additional challenge as brands eliminate color from PET bottles to simplify the recycling process, further exposing products to degradation. Milliken & Company’s ClearShield™ UV Absorber for PET packaging offers a more sustainable, polymer-bound UV absorber that lets you maintain the clarity consumers prefer and avoid unnecessary additives in the contents. Learn more about this invaluable solution by attending our presentation given by Bharat Ganesan at The Packaging Conference 2022.
