Additive solutions for flexible packaging

FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS FOR PREMIUM RESULTS

cookies, chocolate bar and sweets in flexible packaging
Flexible packaging is an integral part of our modern day consumer lives. It is used in multiple segments such as food, beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, pet food and many more. Global trends like urbanization keep fueling growth of retail markets. At the same time, continued development of raw materials and processing technologies keep improving efficiency, economics and sustainability opening up new applications.

As a global performance additive solution provider, Clariant offers many options to improve performance and functionality of flexible packaging. Processability, quality, recyclability and lifetime extension are important features. Our additives solutions contribute to improved printability, static control and reduce gel formation in the production process.

PRODUCTS

AddWorks® PKG 190

Antistatic
AddWorks® PKG 190 is a Clariant proprietary vegetable based antistatic composition for polyolefin based flexible packaging films. It provides excellent long term antistatic performance in terms of surface resistivity and static decay times. AddWorks PKG 190 also maintains high optical film quality level making it a preferred antistatic for transparent printable films. more

AddWorks® LXR™ 568 MP

Heat/Thermal Stabilizer
AddWorks® LXR™ 568 MP is a highly efficient phosphorous solution for the process stabilization of polymers, which reduces yellowing and polymer degradation. It shows enhanced hydrolytic stability and works as heat stabilizer as well as antioxidant for polymers. It shows high solubility in polymeric materials and has a broad compatibility in coating polymers. When used in film production it contributes to reducing gels and defectsmore

AddWorks® PKG 906

Heat/Thermal Stabilizer
AddWorks® PKG 906 is a proprietary additive solution focussing on plastic recycling, allowing film manufacturers, e.g. of polyolefin film or BOPP film, to incorporate a higher amount of recyclate in their film process. As antioxidant, it provides extra thermo-oxidative protection, preventing uncontrolled MFR increases, gel or black spot formation. In addition, higher than normal line speeds can be maintained due to improved process stability and tendency for reduced film breakage. It is ideal for flexible packaging applications. more

Hostanox® P-EPQ® MICRO PILLS

Heat/Thermal Stabilizer
Hostanox® P-EPQ® MICRO PILLS is a highly efficient phosphorus based secondary antioxidant for polymers, which reduces polymer degradation and yellowing during processing. It works as heat stabilizer and antioxidant for polymers and supports process stabilization. It shows high solubility in polymeric materials as well as broad compatibility in coating polymers. more

Hostavin® N 30 PILLS

Light Stabilizer
Hostavin® N 30 PILLS is an oligomeric hindered amine light stabilizer (HALS), designed for light stabilization of plastic materials. This HALS is characterized by its broad compatibility, low discoloration and excellent resistance to migration making it particularly suitable for packaging film applications, either food packaging such as those made of water quenched blown films or industrial packaging. more

Hostavin® N 30 is also available as powder. more

Hostastat® FA 14

Antistatic
Hostastat® FA 14 is an ethoxylated alkyl amine based on renewable fatty acids which provides highly effective internal antistatic effect to thermoplastic polymers like packaging film. more

Hostastat® FA 24

Antistatic
Hostastat® FA 24 is an ethoxylated alkyl amine which provides highly effective internal antistatic properties to thermoplastic polymers like packaging film. It provides a reduction of static charges on polymer surfaces preventing undesired or hazardous effects caused by dust attraction, spark discharge, or ink misting. Hostastat® FA 24 also acts as anti-fouling agent for PP polymerisation, when used in-situ. more

Hostastat® FA 38

Antistatic
Hostastat® FA 38 is a free flowing solid ethoxylated alkyl amine based solution which, as an internal antistatic agent, provides highly effective internal antistatic properties to thermoplastic polymers like packaging film. more

Hostastat® FA 68 V

Antistatic
Hostastat® FA 68 V is a vegetable based, halal certified ethoxylated alkyl amine which, as an internal antistatic agent, provides highly effective internal antistatic properties to thermoplastic polymers like packaging film. It shows a high thermal stability and maintains excellent optical performance such as transparency and gloss of the packaging films. more

Hostastat® FE 1

Antistatic
Hostastat® FE 1 is an internal antistatic agent based on renewable fatty acids which is used to reduce static charges in thermoplastic polymers. It is ideal for rigid packaging with food contactmore

Hostastat® FE 2

Antistatic
Hostastat® FE 2 is an internal antistatic agent based on renewable fatty acids which is used to reduce static charges in thermoplastic polymers. It is ideal for rigid packaging with food contactmore

Hycite® 713

Acid Scavenger
Hycite® 713 is an inorganic multifunctional additive specifically tailored for use in polyolefins. As high performance, non migrating acid scavenger, it shows a high contribution to corrosion protectionmore
