Oxy-Guard® Barrier Bottles
Available from Clariant Healthcare Packaging
Clariant specializes in protective packaging technologies, including multi-layer extrusion blow molded pharmaceutical containers.
In order to inhibit the oxidation of sensitive drugs, our barrier bottles are engineered with six layers, one of which includes Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol (EVOH). Oxy-Guard® bottles effectively block oxygen ingress by a factor of 100 compared to regular bottles and also provide an excellent barrier against moisture. The six-layer structure can also incorporate a UV barrier, as well as customer-specific resins and design characteristics.
