RPC barrier solution offers protection for blow-moulded containers

An array of rigid blow-moulded plastic containers can be protected from solvent-based liquids using a new barrier solution, called RPC Barrier.

RPC Barrier has been developed at RPC Emballages Moirans, France. It can be used on containers with a volume of 1-30 litres without interfering with the weight, strength or shock resistance properties of the plastic material.

RPC notes that the new protection solution is suitable for use in packages used to transport fuel, chemicals and food. RPC Protect also has an environmental benefit; as the treatment is easy to remove, the recyclability of containers is enhanced.
