Advanced polymer modifier could boost its take up in packaging - DuPont Packaging

February 23/2011

(Food Production Daily) -- An advanced polymer modifier that tackles a host of limitations linked with polylactic acid (PLA) could boost its take up in packaging, said DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers.

Latest trials by the US-based company have shown its Biomax Strong 120 delivers remarkable toughening effects in brittle PLA materials, cuts power consumption and increases thermal stability during extrusion, according to Dr Carol Casarino, packaging and consumer global technology manager.

The modifier can also have a dramatic effect in reducing crinkly film noise which has so far restricted its acceptance in flexible packaging application such as snack bags, said DuPont.

The firm said recent testing had revealed the new benefits from this PLA modifier that could speed the growth of PLA polymers in packaging.
