Mullinix has launched our innovative, glass-clear, PET/scavenger packaging, OxyRx™, which is capable of maintaining zero oxygen permeation for over four years, after which headspace oxygen is lower than the initial oxygen. Better than cans or glass at preventing oxidation of foods and beverages, OxyRx™ from Mullinix addresses consumer demands for the quality and convenience of prepared foods. Contents can be seen by consumers, and product flavor is not absorbed into the packaging. This protects and preserves flavor and consistency of foods and beverages. The OxyRx™ material enhances traditional PP/EVOH packaging used since the 1980s, and it can be thermoformed into stock or custom geometries and lidded with film or foil.
The OxyRx™ material can also be crystallized into CPET packaging for heating in both microwave and conventional ovens up to 400 degrees.
Traditionally, packaging comprised of oxygen-scavenging materials costs more. The new OxyRx™ PET/scavenger material is competitive with many of the commercial PP/EVOH containers and offers cost savings for higher EVOH percentage applications. Advantages of the OxyRx™ containers include better flavor, odor, shelf life, and overall performance. The material can also be recycled with other #1 PET packaging.
