Good update of the overview graph MVTR/OTR. Provided deep technical information on materials and properties used for barrier properties

Antoinette van B. , from Eastman Chemical BV

The course has given me an indication of the future behavior of the barrier industry.

Fabricio S. , from Cascades

Got access to technology I had no knowledge of. Information about biopolymers was an eye-opener !

Rajesh I. , from DIC India Ltd.

Excellent overview of multiple barrier packaging technologies and the companies that supply the services.

Kevin H. , from Avery Dennison

Nice overview of barrier packaging innovations. Time gain for us to do the same search. Thanks

Didier H. , from Eval Europe

The course gives a good overview of new and competing barrier technologies for food packaging.

Leonard D. , from Sun Chemical

The broad overview of developments that are being commercialized today was useful to me.
