SoarnoL™ is commonly used in barrier tube applications such as toothpaste, cosmetics, glues and caulks. In these applications SoarnoL™ serves as a barrier not only to oxygen but also various hydrocarbons (e.g. flavors and fragrances).
SoarnoL™’s ability to prevent oxidation of the oils that are components of cosmetics, and to preserve other aromatic components, is expanding the use of SoarnoL™ as a barrier material in this application. In addition, SoarnoL™ exhibits almost no decomposition gases during extrusion, which ensures that cosmetic properties are not compromised by the presence of undesirable odors coming from decomposition of the resin itself.
