Avient Corporation will present its portfolio of materials and technologies that can help designers, brand owners, and manufacturers improve the sustainability, performance, and aesthetics of their applications, with a focus on enhancing recyclability in packaging.

Avient will highlight the following solutions for applications in packaging, with a particular focus on bottle-to-bottle recycling developments:

ColorMatrix Smartheat RHC Process Aid: an APR accredited, patent protected, liquid dispersion process aid, available to rPET producers and converters to help improve recycling and sustainability of PET bottles by enabling increased rPET content, improving rPET quality, and helping to reduce energy use and CO2 emissions. SmartHeat RHC is claimed to have minimal impact on final product colour or aesthetics.

ColorMatrix Amosorb 4020R rPET Booster: an oxygen scavenging additive formulated for use with rPET. The solution has been developed to deliver full oxygen scavenging performance with up to 100% rPET content. It is also claimed to improve the aesthetics of the recycled bottle in terms of haze and colour.

PCR Colour Prediction Service: a digital tool developed to illustrate the colour possibilities or limitations of certain post-consumer recycled material (PCR) before sample development to help simplify the overall decision-making process for brand owners and technical colourists.
