ColorMatrix™ Lactra™ SX Light Blocking Additive for PET

Extend the shelf life of light-sensitive dairy products in PET bottles with ColorMatrix™ Lactra™ SX

ColorMatrix Lactra SX Light Blocking Additive in solid masterbatch form provides high-performance light blocking technology and protection for liquid dairy contents when added to monolayer PET bottles. The additive is particularly suitable in packaging for ultra-high temperature (UHT) liquid dairy products, as these types of products have a longer shelf life, making them more susceptible to light-induced oxidation due to ambient storage conditions. UHT dairy products require special packaging consideration for long ambient shelf life, which ColorMatrix™ Lactra™ SX Light Blocking Additive can provide as a high-performance light blocking product.
