Engineered for use with perishable foods, Placon PET barrier material has a #1 recycle symbol, meaning packages made of the material can be put back into the PET recycling stream to be used over again. The OxyStar resin code recyclable material utilizes an active oxygen barrier that stops oxygen ingress through a free radical chain reaction within the packaging sidewalls. Throughout the shelf life of the active agent, oxygen ingress remains near zero.
