Kuraray EVAL™

EVAL™ helps food producers and distributors make packaging more efficient, avoiding waste while conserving energy and resources, as well as reducing the total amount of packaging materials. Just 1 mm of this ethylene vinyl-alcohol (EVOH) copolymer has the same gas barrier properties as a 10-meter-thick wall of standard low-density polyethylene.

With such performance, an EVAL™ resin or film thickness measuring just a few microns can provide amazingly effective barrier properties against oxygen, carbon dioxide, and contamination. EVAL™ is recyclable and recoverable, and allows for innovative packaging design that is both reliable and safe to use.
