Sustainable materials for a greener future:
meet us at K Show, Hall 7a, Booth D06


At K 2019, we will present our comprehensive portfolio of high-performance materials. Stop at our booth and learn more about our unique products that combine performance and sustainability such as the bio-barrier material PLANTIC™, the bio-rubber SEPTON™ BIO-series or MonoSol’s water-soluble film. This material dissolves completely upon contact with water and is biodegradable making it a promising replacement for many kinds of single-use plastics. Or discover our latest development: EVAL™-Types with a particularly low ethylene content enabling the development of recyclable multilayer structures.

EVAL™

EVAL™'s barrier properties give more performance per thickness than any conventional polymer, and the barrier function works in both directions. Value, quality, flavour and CO2 are locked inside. Oxygen, odours and contamination like MOSH/MOAH are kept outside where they belong. The advantage of the excellent gas barrier properties of EVAL™ resins implies that smaller quantities of raw materials (e.g. plastic) can be used without any loss of performance and protection capacity. As a result, the packaging is lighter in weight and does not contain chemicals that cause harm to the environment. Moreover, scrap containing EVAL™ can be recovered and recycled.
