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.
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
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.
