Focus on the development of Pharmaceutical Intermediates
The application of Pharmaceutical Intermediates is broad. Bottles are the largest market for Pharmaceutical Intermediates. With the continuous improvement of the overall living standards of society, a variety of soft drinks, fruit juice, vegetables, beverages required for the growing demand for plastic containers.
Polyester bottles are the fastest growing and most notable Pharmaceutical Intermediates in recent years. The introduction of a large number of injection blowing technology to promote the substantial expansion of PET bottles, and its excellent performance, access to market recognition. In just a few years, polyester bottles have become a variety of food, beverages, edible oil and other packaging bottles of mainstream materials. At the same time, in the cosmetics, pharmaceutical and other industries demand is also increasing. According to information, China's carbonated beverage bottles in the application of the proportion of PET bottles has more than 60%.
Domestic tea beverage market has sprung up, hot filling 85-90 ° CPET bottles in recent years, the fastest growing varieties of polyester bottles, the annual growth rate of more than 50%. Today, the annual output of tea drinks has reached 3 million tons.
Polypropylene transparent packaging bottle in recent years, the development of domestic and foreign Pharmaceutical Intermediates another hot spot. The new high-transparent PP can be widely used in injection, extrusion, extrusion, thermoforming various containers, food, medicine bottles, etc., its cost is appropriate, is PS, ABS, PET, PE bottle of competitors, the market prospect is broad.
PET material has good barrier properties, making it the most important packaging material in the field of bottled bottles of various carbonated beverages, fruit juices, dairy products, tea drinks, mineral water and so on, and in almost all areas instead of glass packaging bottle. However, beer as a glass bottle to stick to the largest piece of the market, PET has been the biggest resistance to enter, so that the Pharmaceutical Intermediates to produce the largest market association.
High barrier technology for beer bottles has been an important goal pursued by the pharmaceutical industry. Different manufacturers have developed a variety of high barrier technology. From the current market situation, multi-layer composite process is more manufacturers optimistic about the barrier technology. Multi-layer composite is generally used in the inner and outer layers of polyester, barrier layer using EVOH, PEN or nylon structure. As PEN cost is too high, has been gradually used, such as Zhuhai, the successful development of three layers of composite plastic beer bottles on the use of EVOH or nylon as the barrier layer. Relatively speaking, the composite process is more complex, but the barrier effect can meet the requirements of beer bottles. And compared with PEN, and obviously can reduce costs. Active oxygen barrier is a new type of barrier technology in recent years.
Nanotechnology is also one of the main ways to realize product functionalization and barrier. US polyester production plant and Eastman Chemical Company jointly developed a PET co-extruded multilayer blown nylon nanocomposite imperm, used as PET / nylon / PET three-layer bottle barrier core material. Chinese Academy of Sciences has also developed successful PET PET bottles for beer bottles, to meet the requirements of long shelf life.
Although a wide range of plastics used in beer bottles have a long way to go, but the continuous development of high barrier technology in the field of beer applications have made some progress at the same time, in the beverage, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, pesticides and other high barrier requirements of the packaging The bottle area is playing an increasingly important role, and to promote the Pharmaceutical Intermediates market to further expand.
