Parma, Italy (PressExposure) April 17, 2009 -- Bormioli Rocco writes a new chapter in the history of plastic pharmaceutical packaging entitled high transparency PP. This polymer of the polyolefin family is used for brand new dosage caps which combine optimum processability with excellent rigidity.
Constant research in the fields of materials and technology has enabled the Plastics Division to improve the characteristics of standard PP and offer customers an innovative product that meets their specific requirements. High-transparency dosage caps in PP are approved for contact with foodstuffs.
PP also offers exciting scope for application in the field of plastic packaging for cosmetics. Indeed, the company also produces a range of bottles in PP with levels of transparency similar to PET. And it doesn't stop there. The company is experimenting with the inclusion of nanocomposites in the polymer matrix of PP. Results to date are highly encouraging in terms of greater mechanical resistance to impact and a barrier effect against water vapour and gases in general.
