Plastic Bottle Fluorination – A Solution To Prevent Paneling And Fragrance Loss


Plastic bottle and jar fluoridation is a “secondary” manufacturing process, which means you can fluorinate bottles post manufacture. It is commonly used to prevent bottle paneling (for more information about bottle paneling visit this blog post) and prevent gas permeation through bottle walls, which results in fragrance and weight loss.

There are 9 common fluorination levels you can choose from, and each has a different associated cost and barrier level. We recommend fluorination to be done on both bottle and closure at the same time, which provides barrier protection for the whole package.

While fluorination sounds ideal for all applications, it is not always necessary. Common applications include acetone, chemical additives, beauty products and some preservatives. Remember to always perform compatibility testing of your product and package first to determine whether fluorination is needed.
