DSM to show flexible food packaging material at US events
Royal DSM, the global Life Sciences and Material Sciences Company, will be presenting a material solution for flexible food packaging at upcoming events, Multilayer Packaging Films conference, to be held in Chicago from June 2 to 3, 2015 and TAPPI Flexible Packaging Symposium, which will be held on June 10, in Miami.
As a leader in material sciences, DSM has developed a portfolio of proven, high-performance, sustainable plastics for the film industry. These materials are highly suited for the production of packaging film for foods where they deliver benefits like reducing food waste. To solve the problem of excessive crystallization of traditional PA6 in multilayer barrier films, DSM developed Akulon XS polyamide. The semi-crystalline structure of Akulon provides a strong barrier against oxygen and aromas; while the material also offers exceptional mechanical strength and durability, DSM informs in a statement.
At both of these upcoming events Harrold Goertz, global technical product manager for DSM engineering plastics, will outline how Akulon XS is making it easier and more cost effective for processors to make polyamide 6 blown films for flexible food packaging, leveraging the unique barrier and mechanical properties of polyamide 6.
Multilayer Packaging Films conference is a specialized flexible packaging event that brings together top flexible packaging experts to discuss innovations in the films and materials, additives, barrier properties, production technologies and applications that are setting the new standards for packaging excellence.
The TAPPI Flexible Packaging Symposium, co-located with the Global Pouch Forum, is the gathering place for top packaging professionals involved in flexible packaging/pouch production and the corresponding film, closures, materials, equipment and services needed for packaging. (GK)
