New ECOZEN grades with enhanced transparency for glass-like applications 

SK Chemicals (South Korea) has recently modified its bio-based ECOZEN co-polyester lines, significantly improving their transparency and performance. Especially the cosmetic packaging industry, the food as well as household and consumer goods markets will benefit from the new development.

VELOX GmbH, one of Europe’s leading solution providers of raw material specialities
for the plastics, composites, additives and paint & coatings industries,announced that their long-term partner SK Chemicals (South Korea) has recently modified its bio-based ECOZEN co-polyester lines, significantly improving their transparency and performance. Especially the cosmetic packaging industry, the food as well as household and consumer goods markets will benefit from the new development.



“The new ECOZEN portfolio is further adding value to the needs of the cosmetic and packaging industries by providing a highly transparent, heat- as well as chemical resistant polymer”, comments François Minec, General Manager at VELOX. “The colour tone of the material has been drastically improved, having become perfectly suited for clear crystal- or glass-like applications.”

Besides, ECOZEN is an eco-friendly solution, containing an appropriate amount of bio-mass and is free of Bisphenol A. Further benefits of the material are easy processing, energy efficiency, high printability, excellent recyclability as well as impact strength. VELOX provides the new range in nearly all European countries.
