Arkema presents brand new tie resin with improved clarity and adhesion for PE-based barrier films
Updated: 2016-01-29 09:52 Source: Market Report Company share:

Arkema, a France-based chemical manufacturer, has introduces a new tie layer resin, Orevac18362, with excellent clarity and high adhesion to EVOH barrier films and polyamides used in clear multilayer packaging for fresh produce, said the company in its press release.

LEYGATECH, a well-known producer of specialty films, has successfully tested Orevac18362 and since then adopted it for the production of all its transparent food barrier films.

For aesthetic and marketing reasons, food companies require flexible lids and barrier bags with higher transparency to pack their cheese, meat or vegetables. In order to meet this requirement Arkema has designed Orevac 18362, a tie resin for multilayer polyethylene-based barrier films offering excellent transparency and adhesion.

This versatile grade expands Arkema’s range of tie resins, which now cover a large part of film packaging applications. Its formulation (maleic anhydride grafted LLDPE) has been fine-tuned to increase its transparency compared to current commmercial grades such as Orevac 18360 tie layer. This new grade complies with both FDA and EU food regulations.
Orevac 18362 can be processed on standard PE extrusion lines and equipment. It is suitable for blown film, cast coextrusion, tube extrusion and blow molded multilayer structures.
