These coatings provide a carbon dioxide and/or oxygen barrier, enhancing shelf life. A topical barrier also allows manufacturers to use virgin plastic pre-forms instead of multi-layer versions. Less expensive methods for recycling the plastics back into containers may also be implemented.
Nordson can also provide a broad range of UV curing equipment for plastic containers. Our curing systems are ideal for applications in PET bottles, blow-molded extrusion bottles, dairy product containers, plastic caps, cups and enclosures, and more.
