Dow Introduces New Food Packaging Adhesive for Medium-Barrier Applications

Posted By ASC, Thursday, July 27, 2017

Dow Chemical Company has announced the release of a new food packaging adhesive which the company says will confer several advantages to food packaging companies. It has been designed for resource efficiency and to enhance the recyclability of flexible packaging by enabling the use of polyolefins instead of metalized packaging, aluminum-based packing, or PET. Dow says that the advance will meet the demand for cost-competitive, recyclable packaging while still optimizing shelf-life.


When used in medium-barrier applications, the company reports that the product will not adversely affect the shelf-life of packaged foods and may even provide a better seal, excluding oxygen and moisture more effectively. Meanwhile, food packaging companies will be able to enhance their sustainability profiles by supplying products in packaging that is compatible with existing recycling techniques.
