DuPont Launches Amine-Free Antistat for Film at NPE - International Plastics Showcase
Posted on March 21, 2012 at 02:58 AM EDT
A new amine-free antistat solution for BOPP (bi-axially oriented polypropylene) and PP (polypropylene) film delivers a unique combination that helps ensure safer chemistry for food packaging.
The new product - GRINDSTED(R) AR100 - will be featured in DuPont Booth #35013 along with other bio-based additives resulting from the recent acquisition of Danisco. It also is the subject of a science and technology talk at the Technology Theater in the South Hall Booth #39039 on Tuesday, April 3, at 2:30 p.m.
"DuPont has strength and depth in antistat solutions for polyolefins, and our new product is something that the market has been seeking for some time," said Bjarne Nielsen, senior applications manager, DuPont Polymer Additives. "Antistats are an important additive in many different packaging applications serving a well-defined purpose: preventing the attraction of dust and other fine particles to the polymer surface that would otherwise render a packaged product unattractive. There is a widespread desire today to avoid traditional ethoxylated amine chemistry wherever possible as demands for unquestioned safe chemistry in food packaging grow steadily."
The new product is aimed at the food packaging industry. "Brand owners are striving to improve all aspects of product safety, and the fact that GRINDSTED(R) AR100 can be used at any loading level to obtain the optimal, desired performance and that it is a 1:1 alternative makes it an obvious choice in PP packaging applications," said Mick Potenza, DuPont Polymer Additives account manager, USA. "We expect the product to be a leader in its field on both sides of the Atlantic."
DuPont acquired Danisco - the largest producer of food emulsifiers in the world - in May 2011, and this now forms the basis of the Nutrition & Health division. Included in the acquisition are the company's five emulsifier manufacturing plants throughout the world in Europe, the United States, Malaysia, China and Brazil, and the Polymer Additives section takes this safe, non-contentious food ingredient chemistry and applies their technology to the polymer industry.
