BPA free resins

  • BPA Free
  • Solutions for food packaging
  • Same cost and performance as epoxies

Recent Nestle guidance note has led many companies to seek BPA free resins with similar cost and performance to epoxies. allnex has developed BPA free products that meet the requirements for most applications. Our recent EBECRYL®  876 can match epoxy performance in OPV's (Over Print Varnishes). Contact us to know more about our other BPA free resins.

Waterborne adhesive for packaging

  • Adhesion to various plastic substrates
  • High durability & elongation
  • High clarity and transparency

The blister packaging and the security card lamination industry need very high standards features to adhere the different layers of plastic. Our DAOTAN® TW 6450/30WA products in this regard give excellent adhesion to different plastic substrates and have a low VOC content. Apart from adhesion, these products give very good barrier properties and green strength.

Low migration resins for food packaging

  • Low odor, low extractable
  • No VOC
  • Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)

Energy curing (UV/EB) technologies have already made significant inroads into non-food applications due to the numerous advantages (e.g. high gloss, excellent resistance properties, high printing speed, fast drying or cure times, no VOC and low system cost). The usual concerns to use UV inks in food packaging are odor and taste transfer, migration of existing resins and of photo-initiators as well as presence of chemicals of concern. To address above mentioned fears, allnex is offering low migration resins as well as EBECRYL® LEO resins.

Photo-initiator shortage? Test our solutions!

  • UV LED booster
  • easy to handle polymeric benzophenone
  • self-curing resins

Are you facing problems getting photo-initiators at a reasonable cost for industrial wood coatings and packaging coatings and inks applications? allnex has 3 ways it can help: EBECRYL® LEO Self-Curing Resins, EBECRYL LED 03 UV LED booster and polymeric photoinitiator EBECRYL® P 39.
