Modern consumer demands for longer product shelf lives without preservatives while providing good product protection are increasing. Greiner Packaging has followed the trend and is investing heavily in developing barrier technologies for plastic food packaging. This technique involves layers of various materials that protect the filling. By placing a great deal of value on having a wide range of offerings of plastic food packaging for different target groups, Greiner Packaging has succeeded in driving a variety of different barrier technologies, for example the Multi Barrier Technology, forward.
Advantages of the Multi Barrier Technology (mbt):
- A greater oxygen barrier can be achieved by embedding a special barrier layer such as EVOH or PA into a standard plastic, such as PP or PET - migration between the filled product and the packaging can be minimized
- A higher transparency can be achieved due to the mbt 1-step-production process
- Temperature resistance in terms of hot-filling
This plastic food packaging technology is used for extrusion, sheet extrusion with subsequent thermoforming for cups and bowls as well as for injection strech blow molding for bottles and containers. The filling requirements can be addressed individually, depending on the plastic systems chosen.
