New Innovative Acrylates for Food Packaging Applications from Cytec Industries Inc.

Published on 2010-10-12. Author : SpecialChem

Brussels -- Energy Curable technologies have already made significant inroads into non food applications, but are slow to conquer food applications due to migration, odor and taste transfer issues. EBECRYL LEO® resins from Cytec Industries Inc. prove that these issues can be overcome. Besides having print properties which meet at least the quality of standard resin grades, Cytec's range of EBECRYL LEO® resins shows attributes in line with legal and industry requirements'.

"In order to meet this challenging profile, we have developed new qualities of raw materials and catalysts and have selected new inhibitors with food contact clearance", says Paul Gevaert, TS&D Engineer Radcure. "The Low Extractable/ Low Odor Resins design process includes a master strategy for minimizing the transfer of acrylates from the packaging matrix. This is based on increasing the size and cross-link density of the resin components. This strategy permits to limit the migration of acrylate resins into food, under normal conditions of use. The non-mutagenic nature of each Low Extractable/ Low Odor resin has been demonstrated through appropriate tests", he adds.
