POLIPROTECT
M&G’s new barrier solution
1
Poliprotect & BicoPET:
Poliprotect differs from M&G’s previous solution, Actituf, primarily because of
the technology used, the BicoPET.
BicoPET ™ is an innovative technology patented by M&G which allows to mix
in a single chip the active barrier (preventing the oxygen entry) and the passive
barrier, BASF’s new nylon Ultramid X17 (preventing the loss of CO2).
In such a way M&G offers to converters the possibility to have both active and
passive barrier without the need to dose. This avoids possible errors and limits
the necessity for quality control.

M&G’s new range of barrier resin:
•
Poliprotect PB (passive barrier)
this is the solution for products that require passive barrier only:
 CSD
 Ready to drink
•
Poliprotect APB (active and passive barrier)
this solution guaranties a high active barrier associated with the necessary
passive barrier for the following applications:
 Juices, smoothies, juice based products
 Beer, Wine
 Milk and dairy products
 Food applications (ketchup, salad dressing, etc...)
•
Poliprotect JB (juice barrier)
this solution suits particularly products that need medium active barrier:
 Juices, smoothies, fruit based beverages
 Food applications (ketchup, salad dressing, etc...)

For the PB grade, the core of the pellet contains the passive barrier.
For the APB grade, the core contains the passive barrier while the shell is
made of modified PET mixed with the active barrier.
For the JB, the structure is identical to the APB but with a nylon content
significantly lower.

What are the advantages of BicoPET™?
•
No additional investment required by the converter because it is
dried, injection molded, and reheat blow molded like standard
PET
•
No separate handling system for nylon
•
No dosing errors
•
Excellent dispersion
•
Barrier active only when bottles are blown which allows to keep
preforms at stock without time limit
•
Recyclable
•
Fully approved by FDA and EC

Ultramid® X17, the key to our transparency:
•
What makes Poliprotect unique in comparison to the other existing solutions is the
new nylon Ultramid® X17 included in each pellet.
•
The development of Ultramid® X17 is the result of a considerable R&D investment
from the part of BASF for the exclusive use of M&G.
•
This innovative nylon has a perfect compatibility with our modified PET and allows to
have high transparency in the final bottle appearance.
•
The comparison with the MDX6 (in the same % of dosage) shows that the final haze
on clear bottles is dramatically reduced.

Top load
Creep
Burst (bar): it determines the bottle strength by pressurizing it until it bursts.
Creep (%): it examines the progressive expansion of a bottle once it is filled and
carbonated and then put under pressure.
Top load (kg): it measures a container's maximum resistance to a vertical pressure.

The red line indicates the rate of 1 ppm of 02 ingress which is the typical market
requirement.
It appears clearly that Poliprotect APB’s performance exceeds by far this target and
therefore is the ideal barrier solution for sensitive beverages.

High protection against Vit. C loss
This test was commissioned by an Italian top-quality juice
maker on a 250 ml bottle 100% Poliprotect APB + barrier
cap filled with a smoothies (100% juices of mixed fruits)
The Vit. C loss is very limited due to the fact that the oxygen
ingress is prohibited by the barrier scavenger, also odour
and color test show no evident change during time.

Long lasting barrier for juices
This graph represents a real test done with a premium orange juice (100% pure juice)
that has given a very positive results after approx 9 months shelflife.
The customer was using mulitlayer bottles and comparing the Poliprotect results on
Vit. C loss saw no difference with its solution and switched to Poliprotect.
This will grant the customer higher flexibility and economical convenience at the same
barrier performance.

• Poliprotect was developed to meet current market requirements
on CO2.
• Nevertheless, in case of higher performance needs on passive 13
barrier, our solution can easily be adapted by adding a greater %
of nylon.

Masterbatches
•
M&G has homologated a family of colorants from Holland Colours,
which have perfect compatibility with our Polyprotect resin.
•
The same co-operation is ongoing with Colormatrix, Clariant, Repi,
Toyo, Sukano, Polyone.
•
Upon request, M&G can homologate a specific masterbatch in
short time.
•
Already a list of colorants tested and approved to be used with
Poliprotect is available.
15
PoliProtect is recyclable as part of the regular PET
stream :
•
Extensive testing has shown that PoliProtect has the
same physical properties as PET when recycled at
25%
•
PoliProtect is fully recyclable in the colored bottle
stream
•
Due to the presence of nylon a color shift can occur
during recycling of bottles into the clear stream
•
At projected market penetrations of around 2%,
testing has shown color shift well within the
recycling industry’s tolerance levels
•
Sorting equipment exists which can move nylon
containing flakes to the colored stream
•
Recycled resin can be toned

EEC approval – FDA - Migrations
•
•
Poliprotect fulfills the requirements of the European Community
and national food packaging regulations.
None of the substances listed in Directive 76/769/EEC are present
in this resin
Poliprotect has received the FDA in 2008.
•
In Fraunhofer Institute Poliprotect PET bottles for juices were
screened for migration of relevant compounds with satisfactory
results. (available report with results)
