UV and Light Blocking

ColorMatrix™ Ultimate™ UV390 Light Barrier for PET

UV Product Protection

From beverages and condiments to personal care and household products, you need the right protection against the harmful effects of ultraviolet light. UV rays can cause common dyes used in beverages and personal care products to lose color and can initiate oxidation reactions with various types of vitamins that could result in taste and odor changes.

ColorMatrix™ Ultimate™ UV Light Barrier additives effectively block ultraviolet light transmission, protecting your product and brand integrity during storage, transportation, and in the retail environment.
