Flexible

Woman stacking shelves in supermarketFood packaging made with Aegis® Nylon 6 resins are tear- and puncture-resistant with excellent flexural strength. These characteristics make these resins well suited for meat and cheese packaging and other packages having sharp edges.

In addition, Capran® biaxially-oriented nylon (BOPA) films can be used in a variety of packaging applications requiring excellent mid-barrier oxygen requirements and extended shelf life. These range from general foods, pet foods and coffee beans to packaging lids and liquid bag-in-a-box flexible containers. Selecting Capran® nylon films can help you meet a virtually unlimited range of flexible food and liquid packaging needs.

Equally important, you can count on a knowledgeable team of application development engineers dedicated to support your needs and requests. Contact us to see how we can enhance your manufacturing processes and flexible packaging applications.

Product Description TDS
BarrierPro2™ Aegis® BarrierPro2 nylon resin is an oxygen-scavenging formulation providing high oxygen barrier for juice, tea and condiment bottles. With a melt viscosity that is well suited to the co-injection stretch blow molding process with PET, Aegis® BarrierPro2 nylon resin suppresses crystallization resulting in glass-like clarity. Hot-filled and/or hot-stored bottles place stringent demands on the integrity of the multilayer interface and Aegis® BarrierPro2
CSDE Aegis® CSDE barrier nylon resin is a passive (non-scavenging) nylon formulated for the high carbon dioxide retention demands of carbonated soft drink and carbonated water applications. Typically these applications require excellent delamination performance due to high carbonation levels and complex bottle geometry. In addition, Aegis® CSDE barrier nylon resin provides an excellent barrier to carbon dioxide while delivering glass-like clarity and recyclability. It is also well suited to the co-injection process, because the recommended processing temperature of Aegis® CSDE barrier nylon resin is similar to that of PET.
