German term or phrase: EVOH / sortenrein
In a patent relating to connection devices I am having some trouble with the following words in the phrase below:

EVOH
sortenrein

"Diese Folien sind nicht SORTENREIN. Es sind auch mit EVOH-Folien verschweißte Konnektoren bekannt."

Thank you very much for your help!

Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol (EVOH) Copolymers in Multilayer Structures. ...

"Sorte" in a chemical sense is grade (FWB Chemie & chem. Technik, and Wittfoht, Kunststofftechnisches WB), so I'd suggest a phrase like "pure grade" or something to that effect, depending on how you can fit it into your overall context.
HTH!
