Numerical Prediction of Barrier Properties
Integrative Simulation Shortens Development Time and Cost of PET Bottles
Bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) are increasingly used in the bottling of oxygen-sensitive products with high barrier requirements. This trend is especially evident on the fruit juice shelves of supermarkets. Due to the large amount of time and effort needed for the experimental determination of a bottle’s O2 barrier properties, a numerical approach was investigated with the aim of faster bottle development.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen

International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
