Woman stacking shelves in supermarketFood 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.

Equally important, you can count on a knowledgeable team of application development engineers dedicated to support your needs and requests. Contact us to see how we can enhance your manufacturing processes and flexible packaging applications.

Key benefits of our portfolio of resin and film products for flexible packaging include:

  • Scratch and flex-crack resistance
  • Puncture resistance
  • Delamination resistance
  • Extended shelf life
  • Flavor and aroma-preserving capabilities
  • Exceptional strength and toughness
  • Light weight
  • Clarity and printability for consumer appeal
