Ecostar HB 4000 is a unique, multi-layer sheet that when converted into retail packaging, results in a truly viable environmental solution for showcasing a variety of meats, poultry, seafood, cheese, produce and processed food items. Ecostar HB 4000 PET features a patent pending co-extruded sheet comprising active and passive layers with superior oxygen barrier performance. Once this multi-layer material is thermoformed, an instant barrier is created. The result is an extended shelf-life for perishable foods. Unlike many alternative co-extruded barrier products using EVOH type passive layers, Placon’s barrier PET has consistent layer thickness eliminating oxygen permeation. HB 4000 PET can be recycled with no negative impact on the recycling stream, says the company.
