Solvay Specialty Polymers, in partnership with Husky Injection Molding Systems, is launching Verian High Barrier Polyester (HBP), a recyclable, innovative line of high-performance polymers that will enable a new generation of sustainable packaging solutions for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and films. The new polymer expands Solvay’s portfolio of specialty polymers for barrier packaging.
- Working together with Husky, the development of Verian HBP highlights our robust capability to design cutting-edge and game-changing products and technology that will play a major role in high performing sustainable packaging solutions of the future - said Augusto Di Donfrancesco, President Solvay’s Specialty Polymers GBU.
At the Drinktec 2017 tradeshow, Husky was running a HyPET HPP5 fully integrated preform manufacturing system and was demonstrating its ability to process Solvay’s Verian HBP for a 17gm carbonated soft drink application. By combining the benefits of its high-performing HyPET HPP5 platform with an advanced melt delivery system and highly sophisticated controls, Husky’s Multi-Layer Technology delivers all-new capability that enables the most precise distribution of Verian HBP within a MultiLayer preform.
- We are excited about our partnership with Solvay and the potential that Verian HBP presents in minimizing the impact PET packaging has on the environment - said John Galt, Husky’s President and CEO.
- We believe this development will open new growth opportunities for the next generation of high performance engineered PET packages, while ensuring compatibility with existing recycling streams.
