PTI’s sister company, Phoenix Technologies International has developed a proprietary, patented approach to decontaminating rPET which produces a resin for direct food contact and other applications. The process has received a letter of "no objection" from the Food & Drug Administration and various other international food safety agencies to allow customer use of up to 100% LNO™ resin in packaging applications. The line includes:
Food Grade LNO™ c pellets
This product offers unique benefits in color and IV properties over traditional rPET food grade resins. For applications such as water bottles, LNO™ c resin offers exceptionally low levels of acetaldehyde, sometimes even below that of virgin resins. Based on a simplified manufacturing process, the product is cost competitive with the virgin resins with which it may be blended.
Food & Drug Administration approved for conditions of use A-J.
Food Grade LNO™ p pellets
This material can be blended with virgin resin at high levels to mimic virgin appearance, performance and cost. The process involves melting the flakes through a fine mesh filtration process to remove remaining contaminants such as aluminum, glass and label particles to minimize surface imperfections. LNO™ p is a high intrinsic viscosity resin which can also be used in non-food applications requiring those properties.
Food & Drug Administration approved for conditions of use B-H.
Food Grade LNO™ w pellets
Reduced process steps create a resin pellets with slightly lower IV and better color to blend well with water bottle virgin resins. Well suited for personal care products where the brand owner may wish to use a food contact resin in place of a general bottle resin. Food & Drug Administration approved for conditions of use E-G.
