EVAL™ is the trading name for the ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) copolymer resins manufactured and marketed by Kuraray. Characterised by their excellent processability and outstanding barrier properties, EVAL™ is suited for food, medical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, agricultural & industrial packaging and automotive applications.
One of the major applications of EVAL is as a functional barrier in food packaging. Keeping oxygen out, an EVAL layer preserves the flavour and the quality of the food. Even in cases where the food is stable or specially treated, such as baby milk, EVAL barrier properties can be used to protect sensitive vitamin content.
EVAL™ resins are manufactured by Kuraray’s unique polymer technology under a strict and a continuous quality control. Technological innovations have led to an extended range of different grades of EVAL™ resins for various applications.
