Water Packaging

Packaging for water delivers high clarity and great organoleptics

Bottled water continues to grow globally, and packaging can help elevate consumer perceptions of premium water products. Functional waters have been introduced with nutrients and natural colors that need protection from UV in their clear containers.

Highlights

  • Liquid and masterbatch colorants to provide shelf appeal
  • UV additives that deliver product protection for UV sensitive nutrients and colorants
  • TPEs for metal cap liners to keep mineral waters tasting fresh
  • Soft touch TPEs for over molded caps to help your consumers open your products more easily
  • Processing additives for PET, enabling operational efficiencies and the use of more PCR content
