At The Compound Company we contribute to more sustainable, high-performance - and safe - food and petfood packaging. On the one hand, Yparex® adhesive resins for packaging provide a strong bond between incompatible film layers in multilayer applications; while on the other, our EcoForte® PF peel compound enables easy-to-open plastic film seals in petfood packaging.
Tie-layers for multilayer food packaging
When incompatible materials are used in film packaging you need tie-layers to obtain the right properties – and this is exactly what our Yparex® Renew tie-layer resins provide, in everything from food-contact bottles to multilayer pouches (fish, cheese, meat) to industrial applications like agricultural films.
Yparex® is the first biobased tie-layer resins for multilayer packaging (derived from non-food-based European feedstock and fully recyclable). It’s good for the planet, but also performance. Yparex® delivers outstanding adhesion between polyolefins (PE, PP) and various barrier materials like EVOH and polyamide - along with excellent optical and mechanical properties.
This solution is fully compliant with all EU and FDA regulations and approved for food contact in Europe and the United States. It’s also easy to process. In fact, we even offer grades with high levels of activity that can be diluted: good for profit as well as the planet.
The seal on co-extruded plastic films used in food and petfood packaging needs to be convenient to open. Now you can achieve it with our EcoForte® PF peel compounds. Easy to process over a wide temperature range, they provide the ideal amount of peel resistance (formed by specific incompatibilities inside the plastic which then triggers a predetermined breaking point). Voila, easy-to-open packaging.
Once again, this solution is fully compliant with all relevant EU and FDA regulations.
