Transatlantic Partnership Changes PET Industry World
In a transatlantic partnership a new PET material named “Verian HBP” is exposed to the world’s PET industry. It is the result of partnership of Husky Injection Molding Systems (Toronto), and Solvay Specialty Polymers (Boloni, Italy).
“Verian HBP” is a recyclable line of high-performance polymers that will enable a new generation of sustainable packaging solutions for polyethyleneterephthalate (PET) bottles and films. It expands Solvay’s portfolio of specialty polymers for barrier packaging.
“Working together with Husky, the development of Verian HBP highlights our robust capability to design cutting-edge and game-changing products and technology that will play a major role in high performing sustainable packaging solutions of the future,” says Augusto Di Donfrancesco, President Solvay’s Specialty Polymers GBU.
At the upcoming Drinktec 2017 tradeshow, Husky (Hall A4, Booth 338) will be running a HyPET HPP5 fully integrated preform manufacturing system that demonstrates its ability to process Solvay’s Verian HBP for a 17gm carbonated soft drink bottle . By combining the benefits of its high-performing HyPET HPP5 platform with an advanced melt delivery system and highly sophisticated controls, Husky’s Multi-Layer Technology delivers all-new capability that enables the most precise distribution of Verian HBP within a Multi-Layer preform.
“We are excited about our partnership with Solvay and the potential that Verian HBP presents in minimizing the impact PET packaging has on the environment,” says John Galt, Husky President and CEO. “We believe this development will open new growth opportunities for the next generation of high performance engineered PET packages, while ensuring compatibility with existing recycling streams.”
