This is a well-proven barrier technology to enhance the resistance of PE containers to hydrocarbon permeation [6-9].
Our latest investigation [1] revealed that the barrier improvement of white spirit permeation of PE bottles can be improved by more than 360 times by blending the proper compositions of MPA in a PE matrix during the blow-molding process.
The concentration profiles of drug around an ideal flat film for physical permeation were illustrated in Fig.
