INEOS Barex manufactures a specialized acrylonitrile-methyl acrylate co-polymer; Barex®.
Barex® has established a strong position within the global packaging industry due to its unique performance characteristics. It offers exceptional oxygen barrier protection and chemical resistance combined with strength, impact resistance, and processing versatility. Its versatility makes it readily convertible into bottles, blown film, sheet and moulded parts.
Barex® can be processed through traditional extrusion, injection and calendering techniques and is easily thermoformed. Because of its exceptional strength, Barex® can also match the stiffness of other resins at reduced thickness, allowing for source reduction as well as lighter packaging, which can translate into substantial cost savings to the end-user.
Consumer appeal is one of the most exciting characteristics of Barex®. Barex® offers the design flexibility to create individualized packages that attract the attention of shoppers everywhere.
INEOS Barex manufacturing is based in Lima, Ohio. After being developed in-house, it was introduced commercially in 1975. As a new product, Barex® initially found widespread use in packaging processed meat, correction fluid, gasoline additives and agrochemicals. Since then, its use has expanded to an ever-widening range of challenging packaging applications such as medical and pharmaceutical, personal care products, cosmetics and premium fruit juice beverages. In addition to the production facility in Lima, sales and technical offices are found in Delaware, Texas, and Switzerland.
