Colorway, Hall 2.2 – Booth H51

In 2014, Shanghai ColorWay New Material Co., Ltd embarked on a mission to serve the beverage and food packaging with the development of additive products. The commitment to innovation deepened in 2016 through strategic collaborations with university laboratories, reinforcing the company’s dedication to staying at the forefront of industry trends. Responding to business expansion, a new factory was established in Shanghai’s Fengxian district. At Chinaplas, the company will present is range of solutions for the global beverage and food packaging industry.

UV blocker additives

In the world of plastic packaging, protection is paramount. ColorWay’s UV blocker additives, UVS-392, are claimed to act as a formidable shield against light-sensitive components. These additives enhance product lifespan by preventing premature degradation and colour fading, reinforcing resilience against environmental stressors.

Brew preservation

The company’s PET beer packaging, OxyBLO2 1 & 2, addresses industry challenges with efficient oxygen scavenging, UV light protection, and a commitment to cost-effectiveness and sustainability. This solution is claimed to ensure efficient distribution and product integrity for breweries.

Active O2 scavenger

A key additive for the beverage industry, the company’s active O2 scavenger, OxyBLO2, aims to provide cost-effective oxygen barrier performance with minimal impact on bottle appearance. It is claimed to be ideal for aseptic cold filling and hot filling processes, extending shelf life by shielding products from oxygen exposure.

Full light-blocker

In balancing appearance and protection, ColorWay introduces DairyArmor, a full light-blocker in solid masterbatch form. It achieves a light-blocking effect equivalent to multi-layer packaging, preserving the quality of liquid dairy contents in monolayer PET bottles, says the company.

AA reducer

ColorWay’s AA reducer, PureGuard, is a specialised liquid additive designed for PET preforms. With up to an 80% reduction in acetaldehyde (AA) levels, it has been designed to prevent taste alterations and to ensure product consistency. The AA reducer supports sustainability goals by facilitating the use of recycled PET (rPET) and regrind materials, aligning with sustainability goals and offering universal compatibility with various PET resins and colours.
