Dynapol L 907 and Dynapol L 914 provide high media stability and outstanding protective characteristics. They had the best results in sterilization tests with coated metal test specimens with spicy and highly staining foods, the company said in a statement.
The Dynapol product portfolio offers a variety of polyester resins, which are suited for use in food cans and meet the technical requirements of the market. In combination with the Vestanat B 1186 A, which is approved by the FDA, it is possible to formulate coatings with great flexibility and outstanding chemical stability, which are suitable for the high requirements of the sterilisation tests used in this sector.
Many other Evonik products help provide safe and healthy packaging for foods. For instance, methacrylate-based binders of the Degalan brand are used in heat-seal coatings for yoghurt cups.
Under the brand name Tego, the specialty chemical manufacturer also offers additives that have been developed for solvent-borne and waterborne as well as radiation-curing printing inks, such as those used in food packaging. Tego Dispers products give stable and low viscosity, outstanding pigment stabilization, and high colour strength. Many Tego products for printing of food packaging meet the demanding standards of the Swiss Commodities Directive for Packaging Inks. (GK)
