Tosaf’s new antifog masterbatches meet challenging packaging needs
Afula/Israel, April 2014 Tosaf (www.tosaf.com) has further expanded its existing line of antifog masterbatches to meet challenging needs of the packaging industry, whilst, at the same time, maintaining uncompromised high level optical properties of films and sheets. Based on extensive R&D work, four new and advanced grades have become available, all of them food contact approved. Being adjusted for optimal processing and activity, they are individually formulated to create fast responsive and long lasting antifog activity in polyolefins including metallocene polyethylene (mPE), linear low-density polyethylene (PE-LLD), polybutene (PB-1), and polypropylene (PP) resins.
- AF4953LL is designated for multilayer high barrier packaging applications, including films with a high amount of mPE-LLD. This grade provides very good immediate as well as prolonged antifog activity.
- AF5979PE is specifically developed for high clarity barrier films, providing superior optical properties with ability to improve film clarity.
- AF6851LL is a unique and efficient antifog solution for sealing layers containing PB-1.
- AF2327PP is specially tailored for PP barrier films. Beyond meeting the challenges of this demanding application, this grade offers outstanding processability and excellent activity even after lamination.
