Discarded plastic packaging

Avient has unveiled a new range of light-blocking additives with a low total inorganic and titanium dioxide (TiO2) content.

Suitable for PET dairy and dairy-alternative packaging, Avient said the ColorMatrix Lactra additives can help brand owners overcome current French tariffs and potential future tariffs elsewhere that may limit the content of TiO2 in food packaging. Lactra Four, One, and Zero offer light blocking with up to 99.9 per cent effectiveness, and with total inorganic content of less than 4 per cent and TiO2 content between 0 and 4 per cent.
