Valspar - Oxygen-Scavenging and Barrier Additives for Plastic Containers

Oxygen reacts with fresh and packaged foods and alters them, often to their detriment. Even miniscule amounts of oxygen ingress through the package, will cause products to become unappetising or spoiled, while still on the shelf. valOR® barriers from Valspar, help preserve the freshness of food, beer, condiments, juices, teas, sauces, meat, cheese and much more.

valOR® barrier additives are specially designed to provide superior oxygen-scavenging, barrier performance and compatibility with PET. By using a barrier, customers can make their PET containers lightweight, reduce costs and extend shelf-life.

valOR® barriers are suitable for a wide range of foods, package designs, and storage conditions. These barriers can also be used in both multilayer and monolayer structures.


Product range for a variety of barrier needs

valOR® grades are available to protect the package contents from spoilage for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Oxygen ingress
  • Carbonation loss
  • Vitamin degradation
  • Colour change
  • UV absorption

Products are available on a global basis, with stocked material in Europe and the US. Valspar technical specialists will help you select the product that is right for your application.
