Nova Chemicals: Performance plastic resins
To meet growing consumer demand for fresh, healthy, and convenient packaged foods, Nova Chemicals has introduced 3 new performance resins for food packaging.
Dylark® FG 2500 styrenic copolymer is designed for high-temperature rigidity to prevent distortion of microwave containers and cold-temperature toughness for freezer protection. Surpass® Ifs932-R PE for lids and closures is said to enable better seals and improved flexibility in package design keeping products like ice cream and coffee fresher longer. Zylar® EX 720 acrylic copolymer offers clarity and shatter-resistance making it suitable for takeout containers and frozen or refrigerated items.
