      In the world of flexible packaging, raffia is playing a significant role in industrial bulk packaging.  Globally, millions of tons of goods are packed, stored and transported in standard small size bags or in more demanding jumbo bags called FIBC’s (flexible intermediate bulk containers).
      The use of raffia as a packaging material is increased by the continued development of the raffia fabric quality and manufacturing efficiencies.

      Clariant polymer additives increase the mechanical performance of raffia and improve its resistance to UV light. In addition, increased use of recycled material and CaCO3 fillers and higher production line speeds also become a reality with AddWorks solutions.

    • Many flexible packaging applications require the addition of migratory antistatics to ensure trouble-free manufacturing and high speed handling during post operations such as finished packaging article production and pack filling operations. The aesthetic characteristics of the packaging such as color perception, gloss and transparency also have to meet the highest standards and cannot be negatively affected by the antistatics.

      Clariant offers a range of short and long term migratory antistatics additives and solutions under the tradenames Hostastat and AddWorks.  Both are suited for most common polyolefin film processes such as BOPP, CPP and blown film manufacturing. The main focus is always on obtaining the best possible cost-performance balance while maintaining the best possible quality in the application.

    • Films for flexible packaging are typically manufactured on state-of-the-art high output production lines. Both the processing equipment as well as the raw materials such as PP and PE are pushed to the limits. Additional protection against the exposure to high shear forces and elevated temperatures will benefit the line output as well as the quality of the films produced. Using the dedicated Clariant Hostastat, Hostanox, Hycite and AddWorks polymer additive solutions in BOPP, CPP and blown film can significantly influence the film processability. Expected net results are reduced gel and black spot counts, reduced number of film breakages at high line speeds and more stable film processing. Additional benefits are extended screen pack lifetime and reduced die build up, all resulting in reduced equipment maintenance.

    • Padd_recycle
      Conscious consumption of raw materials, sustainability and improved economics are the main drivers to increase the use of recycled material in the film making process. Besides the common practice of side trim recycling, more and more on–purpose use of recycled material is realized. Clariant AddWorks polymer additive solutions play an important role in the use of increased levels of recyclate, whilst securing process stability and final film quality. AddWorks solutions help to save resources, while adhering to the highest possible flexible packaging quality standards.

    • Inside the extruder, complex auto-oxidation reactions take place in the hot polymer melt. The polymer is further stressed during the extrusion process with shear. The by-product of oxidation, like aldehydes and ketones, result in yellowing of the final polymer product. Clariant develops solutions for increased color stability of the polymer products.
