Ethylene based ionomers have been used in film applications for many years. Ionic associations formed by neutralizing ethylene-acid copolymers with metal salts, typically sodium or zinc, give these ionomers a unique combination of low seal initiation temperature and high melt strength, clarity,...
Poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) is one of the polymers most widely used in the packaging industry. However, it is highly desirable to enhance its barrier properties for applications, such as carbonated drinks and other rigid and flexible packaging applications. The nanocomposites route offers...
Heritage Bag Company has developed compostable bags and liners, which are produced from composites utilizing polymer and mineral materials technology of Heritage Plastics, Inc. This product line is based on proprietary blends of different biodegradable polymers which have been modified using...
The processing, morphology, and tensile properties of blown films prepared from polyamide-6 (PA6) and low density polyethylene (LDPE) blends with and without compatibilizer (Surlyn ® 9020) are studied. The results indicate that the presence of PA6 and a compatibilizer has a great influence on...
Ethylene ionomers, such as Surlyn ® from DuPont, have been the premium sealant materials for packaging applications due to their excellent seal strength and process robustness. The ethylene ionomers exhibit their unique property characteristics because they form a network morphology. In this...
