The demand from packaging manufacturers and brand owners for LDPE regranulates to re-use in packaging is increasing. However, the availability of LDPE regranulates that are suitable for this purpose in terms of quality is very limited.
With Mersalen® LDPE, APK offers high-quality granulates with properties similar to those of virgin plastics. This allows virgin LDPE to be replaced in flexible packaging, labels, films, and many other demanding applications, without compromising on functionality or appearance.
Mersalen® LDPE granulates are also convincing with constance technical values, such as viscosity and mechanical properties, as well as offering the highest purity and being almost completely odor-free.
Flexible packaging, e.g. stand-up pouches, place the highest demands on the plastic materials used. Mersalen® LDPE NCY can, depending on the application, largely or even completely replace virgin LDPE in flexible packaging without any disadvantages in quality. Moreover, both the packaging design and the processing parameters for extrusion and FFS packaging systems can be retained. Possible applications are:
The pressure to improve sustainability is particularly high in labels and stickers, For this reason the usage of regranulates is highly pushed in this segment. Mersalen® LDPE NCY is suitable for many label applications and meets high standards in terms of appearance, e.g. optics and low speck and gel concentration. The very thin film thicknesses often used for labels can be achieved without any problems using Mersalen® LDPE NCY:
Mersalen® LDPE NCY is suitable for a variety of other film applications as well as most standard processing techniques, such as blown and cast extrusion. Furthermore, Mersalen® LDPE can be used for lamination and coating.
Polyamide is a high-quality technical plastic that has, for example, replaced metallic materials in many technical applications. The desire for a higher proportion of regranulate is also increasing significantly in this segment.
Mersamid® PA-6 NCY convinces with its constant property profile and its consistent quality, which allows it to be used in complex technical applications, providing a sustainable alternative to virgin polyamide
