The Enviroclear® copolymer bottle has the lowest total impact ratings in all tests and results matched the control in three out of four tests. The character notes were the same as the control plus a slight fruity note.
The water aged at 45 degrees was analyzed for organic concentration. The low levels measured on the Enviroclear®, HDPE homopolymer and PVC samples correlate well with panel results. The PET and HDPE copolymer samples tested much higher.
Conclusion: The laboratory conclusion is that the Enviroclear® copolymer bottle should be excellent for packaging water.
