Oxygen ingress into the packaging causes reduction of shelf life and may result in product spoilage, as flavor deterioration, color change, haze formation and nutriment depletion. Darex Packaging Technologies' proprietary Oxygen Scavenging Technology (OST) provides a solution to problems of oxygen trapped during the filling process and oxygen ingress over time.
Celox® oxygen scavengers can be used in several applications including lined crowns, aluminum ROPP, and plastic caps. In addition, a Celox masterbatch has been developed and is designed as an OST additive for packaging applications.
