Yparex® plays an important role in a wide variety of packaging applications – ranging from food-contact bottles to multilayer pouches to industrial applications like agricultural films.

Today’s packaging applications demand a great deal from their materials of construction:
  • Barrier to flavour, oxygen and water
  • Mechanical strength
  • Transparency and gloss
  • Sealability
  • Printability
  • Thermoformability
  • High-temperature resistance
  • Food-contact approval
  • Flexibility or rigidity
These always demanding and often conflicting properties cannot be provided by a single material, hence multilayer structures are widely used. The broad array of polymers used in multilayer films are often incompatible and therefore a “tie-layer” is needed to provide packaging films that have all the desired properties. Yparex adhesive resins provide the solution!

Application areas
Typical application areas for Yparex® in multilayer packaging concepts are:
  • Flexible packaging (meat, sausage, cheese, fish)
  • Liquid packaging (juice, milk)
  • Medical packaging (intravenous bags, needle packaging)
  • Containers and bottles (intermediate-bulk containers (IBC) and sauces)
  • Agricultural film (fumigation)
  • Protective film (bubble wrap)
  • Tubes (for cosmetics and sauces)

The benefits of Yparex adhesive resin in your packaging application:
  • Excellent adhesion towards various polyolefins and barrier materials
  • Cost attractive dilution opportunities
  • Excellent optical and mechanical properties
  • Easy processing
  • Food compliance
