Kuraray EVAL™

EVAL can help 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.
