MBT Kavoblow

Injection stretch blow molding

Kavoblow is the name of Greiner Packaging’s innovative advanced injection stretch blow molding (ISBM) technology. In combination with the multi barrier technology (MBT), the packaging has a higher oxygen barrier. MBT Kavoblow has the unique advantage of combining optimal barrier properties with high transparency and heat resistance. It therefore also proves to be a great alternative to glass, cans, and aluminum packaging.

How does it work?

This production technology makes it possible to produce bottles with a higher output than common ISBM technology; the best quality, free from impact marks, can be produced economically. The Kavoblow technology promises a closed EVOH layer from the injection point in the bottom up to the thread seam area. It is used particularly for products that require hot-filling and transparency, such as ketchup, table sauces, cooking sauces, ready meals or baby food.

Your benefits:

Longer shelf life

  • Higher oxygen barrier PP/EVOH/PP
  • Significant increase of best-before-date
  • Addition of EVOH below 5 percent, thus good recyclability
  • Consistent barrier layer

Higher temperature resistance

  • Hot filling up to 85°C

Appearance

  • Transparency comparable to PET

Safety

  • Food authorizations according to actual effective EU regulations
  • Tested for NIAS (non-intentionally added substances) and SML (specific migration limit and organoleptic)

Efficiency and flexibility

  • Single-step quality combined with high efficiency
  • Bottle dimensions from 5 to up to 5,000 ml, mouth inner diameters from 8 to 150 mm on one machine
