BASF presents new plastic film in a line of LUVITEC

November 29/2011

(basf.com) -- Now a new plastic film gives even better protection to Luvitec« high molecular weight powders from penetrating oxygen from the air. Luvitec« (polyvinylpyrrolidone, abbreviation: PVP) is an important component in the manufacture of specialty membranes and specialty adhesives. ôWith the new packaging, we can guarantee our customers even better and, in particular, consistent product quality. The membrane industry in particular is dependent on consistent product properties and purity,ö explains Dr. Markus Lohscheidt, Global Business Management PVP at BASF.

The new packaging made of ethylene vinyl alcohol plastics (abbreviation: EVOH) gives the high molecular weight PVP powders reliable protection from oxidation. The EVOH film has optimum sealing properties. It also has excellent chemical resistance, very good tensile strength, and is impermeable to gases and fluids. Thus, all the relevant product properties remain protected, not just now but for years to come. BASF guarantees a shelf life of up to three years for high molecular weight powders.

Perspectives of development of the polymers markets, pricing issues and other important aspects will be discussed at The Polymers Summit-2011, which will be held in Moscow on November 30, 2011 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The Summit is organized by MRC with the support of ICIS. The main idea of the Summit is to find a "the golden mean" between producers and converters. When producers receive exactly such margin of production, which helps them to invest in production expansion in order to substitute polymers imports, and the converters receive such price of feedstock that helps them to compete imported finished products. The Summit site gives an access to the live video of the Summit, speakers" presentations, as well as opportunities to ask questions or make appointments to any Summit partcipant.
