Extrusion blow moulding specialist RPC Emballages Moirans has developed RPC Protect, a new barrier solution for its range of blow moulded containers up to 30l.

With an ability to provide an effective barrier against solvent-based products, RPC Protect can be used to transport products from various sectors, such as chemical, agrochemical, fuel and food.

The barrier solution maintains the lightweight, robust and shock-resistant properties of the containers and does not affect their performance in any way. It passes all the requirements of drop, pressure and stacking tests.

Containers with RPC Protect are currently undergoing assessment for UN approval.

The mono-material construction of containers incorporating RPC Protect enables them to be recycled, as well as reduce energy consumption during transportation.

RPC Protect provides flexibility in design in all kinds of containers and can be used in creating family ranges containing both barrier and non-barrier packs.

The company currently manufactures and supplies plastic packaging in various sizes ranging from one litre to 30l.

Its product portfolio includes stackable and non-stackable standard containers for many markets, such as the chemical, agrochemical, DIY, lubricants, food, building and food and perfume additive markets.
