DuPont features amine-free antistat solution for BOPP and PP film

March 22/2012

(plastemart) -- 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 AR100 will be featured in by DuPont at NPE along with other bio-based additives .

"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 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."
