Our Barrier Resin Proposal

Poliprotect
Poliprotect gives excellent barrier
solution to diverse product families
3
What do brands ask to barrier PET today?
3
4
New consumers trends
New targets in barrier
Excellence in perfomances in barrier to oxygen for
medium-long period from 3 to 12 months of shelf life (beer,
wine, juices, "food category), and good CO2 retention (beer,
wine, CSD, RTD)
No influence on taste or migration of substances from plastic to
the product.
Increase in transparency of the bottle (consumers need to
see the product inside)
From legal point of view there are always more and more
restrictions on the use of additives and preservatives that
leave the product weak and in need of barrier from the packaging
itself.
The trend of change in the consumer habits ("drinking and
eating on the go", individual doses) and the new energetic,
healthy drinks rich in nutrients and vitamins oblige producers to
use barrier packing for nutritional protection.
5
Key points of monolayer solutions
- Convenience in comparison to glass, aluminium, or carton,
moreover today that glass producer company jhave monopolistic
position on the market
- Possibility of light weightening of the bottle
- Freedom of design and shape of the bottle that vehicules the
brand identity
- Flexibility on different products, different markets,
different packaging (500 ml to 5L bottles up to keg)
- Recyclability of the solution
6
Polyprotect family of resins
Polyprotect is M&G new co-polyester that provides excellent oxygen
and carbon dioxide barrier in combination with outstanding clarity.
- Polyprotect PB (passive barrier material)
The applications concern products that need passive barrier for
carbonation:
- Carbonated soft drinks
- Ready to drink
- Polyprotect APB (active & passive barrier material)
The applications concern products that need excellent oxygen barrier:
- Beer
- Wine
- Fruit Juices
- Poliprotect JB (active barrier)
The applications concern products that need excellent oxygen barrier
with a reduced nylon content:
Juices

PoIyprotect is produced with the BicoPET"
TechnoIogy patented by M&G
Each pellet contains the necessary
barrier
"Its all in the pellet!"
It's patented exclusively by
M&G
8
Modified PET in association with special polyamide to
improve appearance and transparency
For the PB grade, the core contains the passive barrier.
For The APB grade the core contains the passive barrier
while the shell contains the active or activating portion.

Advantages of
patented BicoPET" barrier TechnoIogy
No additional investment required by the
converter
No separate handling system for nylon
No dosing errors
No bulk handling
Dried, injection molded, reheat blow
molded like std PET
Excellent dispersion
Allows segregation of potentially reactive
ingredients, reacting only when molded
Can be recycled

UItramid X17:
What makes Polyprotect so special in comparison to the
other existing solutions is the new nylon Ultramid X17
included in each pellet.
Developed by Basf company on exclusivity for M&G, this
innovative nylon has a perfect compatibility with our
modified PET and allows to have high transparency in the
final bottle appearance.
The comparison the MDX6 (in the same % of dosage)
shows that the final haze on clear bottles is dramatically
reduced.
Our various tests demonstated that the ideal dosage is 5%,
but there are no limits to increase or decrease the quantity
of nylon used, depending on the end users' needs.

The horizontal red line indicates the rate of 1 ppm of 02 ingress that is
typically accepted on the market.
It appears cIearIy that PoIyprotect APB perfomance exceeds by far
this target and therefore it is the ideaI barrier soIution for sensitive
beverages.

PoIyprotect
- Burst in bars:The burst test determines package strength by
pressurizing a package until it bursts.
- Creep in %:The creep behaviour test examines the progressive
expansion of a bottle under pressure once it is filled and
carbonated.
- Top load in kg: The Top Load Tester measures a container's
maximum resistance to a vertical pressure.
15
RECYCLABILITY
Polyprotect resin is recyclable on a bottle to
bottle stream
It can be recycled as well as all the other
barrier resins existing on the market
Polyprotect has been approved by the
Association of Postconsumer plastic
Recyclers (APR)
16
MASTERBATCHES
M&G has homologated a family of
colorants from Holland Colours, which
have perfect compatibility with our
Polyprotect resin.
The same co-operation is ongoing with
Colormatrix, Clariant, Repi, Toyo, Sukano.
Upon request, M&G can homologate a
specific masterbatch in short time
17
WHY CHOOSE POLYPROTECT?
18
MuItiIayer and coating technoIogies both
present Iimitations:
MuItiIayer
Higher costs of barrier
material
nvestment at the injection
molding level is substantially
higher;
The mold cavitation is
unproven above 96 cavities
and very limited above 48
cavities;
Lack of QC tool to prove that
the thickness of the barrier
layer is constant in each
preform.
Recycling can be difficult if
the different layers are tightly
sealed. f not, the risk of
delamination is very high.
Coating
Specific coating equipment
costs (more than 2 mio C)
High technical complexibility
Lack of flexibility (shoul be
done in line with blowing)
Drop in line efficiency (long
cycle time)
Limited n. of equipment
suppliers
Limits in the choice of bottle
shapes
M&G monoIayer soIution is a more cost effective,
fIexibIe, proven technoIogy
19
Limitations of other monoIayer
technoIogies
None of the foIIowing soIutions have the BicoPET technoIogy,
they have to be dosed at the injection machine.
AMOSORB
The barrier is immediately active once the box of Amosorb is open
t requires special handling equipment and precaution during preform/bottle
storage to avoid loss/variation of performances
t is particularly weak on passive barrier, therefore can not meet market
requirements on CO2
MONOXBAR
Active from very first moment of preform production
Special handling equipment and precaution during preform/bottle storage to
avoid loss/variation of performances
POLYSHIELD
The need to feed the passive barrier at the injection machine generates
quality risks.
Dosing issues: risk of bad dispersion and dosing fluctuation
Additional investment needed for dosing system
