Food packaging made with Aegis® Nylon 6 resins are tear- and puncture-resistant with excellent flexural strength. These characteristics make these resins well suited for meat and cheese packaging and other packages having sharp edges.
In addition, Capran® biaxially-oriented nylon (BOPA) films can be used in a variety of packaging applications requiring excellent mid-barrier oxygen requirements and extended shelf life. These range from general foods, pet foods and coffee beans to packaging lids and liquid bag-in-a-box flexible containers. Selecting Capran® nylon films can help you meet a virtually unlimited range of flexible food and liquid packaging needs.
As a newer addition to our portfolio, Aegis® Nylon 6/66 copolymer resins are designed to 1) increase extruder throughput during manufacturing and converting and 2) reduce haze when incorporated into multilayer co-extruded cast or blown film structures. They are ideal for use in shrink film for bone-in-meat and other protein applications where thermoformability, high shrink, ovenability and puncture resistance are critical for shelf life and consumer satisfaction.
