Packaging

Protective Films

Top Image

Industrial packaging, such as shrink wrap, stretch film, skin film, shrink hood, plays an important role in protecting products during transportation from the manufacturer to the consumer. These packaging materials are primarily composed of polyolefin and come in various configurations, sealed or bundled, for different types of products.

Our range of game-changing additives and specific high-dispersed colors allow you to produce industrial packaging that delivers a cost-effective, reduced-volume solution to your manufacturer customers, enabling them to extend the lifecycle of their products and deliver crates that can withstand the rigors of the supply chain.

HIGHLIGHTS

Processing Aid

High-quality, defect-free stretch film can be hard to achieve when producing at high outputs and with polymers with specialized properties. To solve this problem, we offer a high-quality processing aid that improves film quality, while reducing energy consumption.

Slip and Anti-fusion for Shrink and Shrink Hood

When producing shrink film and shrink hoods to stabilize pallets and protect products from dust, water or damage, slip and anti-fusion properties are crucial.

A consistent coefficient of friction is required to slide the shrink film over the pallet quickly, while keeping the pallet stable. You also need to avoid the problems caused to the consumer of the shrink film sticking to the product. Our special slip and anti-fusion additives address both these issues.

Our Products

UV

Polyolefins are sensitive to UV light, which can cause significant damage to plastics. Each polymer has a different minimal absorption peak in the UV range, and its expected life will depend on the irradiation level to which it is exposed, its thickness and the additives it contains. We have developed an innovative range of additives that help to protect products made from polyolefin from light and heat degradation. Sharing with you our knowhow and years of experience, we will advise on which additives to use, how to use them and in what quantities, to optimize them for both your production process and the final application by the end user.

Slip

Slip additives make film production easier, by preventing layers of film sticking together, or sliding over each other. However, they must be used with caution. Too much slip agent can cause blooming - reducing transparency, negatively affecting the printing and slipping properties of the film and increasing the risk of low bonding strength on laminated structures. You also need to ensure that the thermal stability of the slip additives used is suitable for the relevant film process conditions. With over 20 years of experience, we can help you avoid these issues.

Anti-Block

Polyolefin film tends to stick together when an attempt is made to separate it into two film layers. This so-called ‘blocking’ is determined by the composition and rolling tension of the film. The quantity and type of anti-blocking agent incorporated into the film to solve this issue can affect transparency, or it can adsorb migrating agents, such as anti-static, slip, or anti-fog additives, decreasing their efficiency. Using our experience, knowhow and synthetic silica (rather than the more commonly used crystalline natural), we can help you avoid these problems.

Slip-Anti-Block

We offer you the advantage of both slip and anti-block additives in one masterbatch, so you can avoid significant adsorption of the migrating slip additives by the anti-block agents. Our range includes several grades suitable for different types of packaging processes, so you get an innovative, agile additive that meets several needs at once.

Anti-Static

Polyolefin materials are not conductive, so they accumulate static electricity which can cause films to stick to each other or other surfaces, pick up of dust, and even sudden discharge as sparks, causing fires. Our anti-static masterbatches contain migrating molecules which migrate to the surface and attract a thin layer of water molecules from the air, which is sufficiently conductive to dissipate the charge. Our wide range of masterbatches meets different needs, making them suitable for use in a variety of relative humidity levels, from dry to high moisture.

Antioxidant

Oxidation during extrusion can be avoided by incorporating a secondary antioxidant material, usually phosphates. Long-term aging at temperatures below melting point can be avoided by incorporating primary antioxidant, such as hindered phenols. Thanks to a game-changing additive that we have developed, we can avoid the chemical reaction that inhibits oxidation and degrades polymer chains. Taking into account steps in the extrusion process that can partially consume the added antioxidants, we can create a film recipe to ensure that there is enough antioxidant additive to last for the useful life of the film.

Processing Aid

Our extensive range of Polymer Process Aid (PPA) masterbatches have been specifically designed to enhance the processability of plastics, such as PE film, pipes and tubes, to improve productivity and quality, and reduce costs.
