Typical loading is between five and eight weight percent or 25 to 75 micron barrier layer thickness. Oxygen barrier is comparable to the performance of glass bottles. In addition, Aegis® OXCE barrier nylon resin provides excellent barrier to carbon dioxide while delivering glass-like clarity and recyclability. Aegis® OXCE barrier nylon resin is well suited to the co-injection process because its recommended processing temperature is similar to that of PET. By lowering the rate of crystallization which promotes excellent adhesion to PET, multilayer bottles containing Aegis® OXCE barrier nylon resin demonstrate superior resistance to delamination.
Aegis® OXCE barrier nylon resin is an oxygen-scavenging nylon formulated for the high-oxygen barrier demands of plastic beer and flavored alcoholic beverage (FAB) bottles. Multilayer polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles made with Aegis® OXCE barrier nylon resin demonstrate near zero oxygen transmission rates for extended periods of time, depending on barrier loading.
