Packaging is a crucial sector that provides protection, safety, design, usability and sustainability to materials that each of us are using on a daily basis. At Kisuma, we stepped up to the plate by introducing solutions that enable the development of materials that fulfil all these needs and more.
Enabling lightweight plastic packaging solutions resulting in reduction of CO2
Our products ensure the best aesthetic and protective properties
Kisuma products widely acknowledged to have superior processing features leading to uncompromised quality
Suitable for variety of plastics meeting plastic circularity goals
Plastics are some of the most common packaging materials for many reasons—they are low-cost, lightweight, with strong chemical and biological resistance and excellent workability, making them ideal for several types of packaging. Stabilization and functional additives have been used for many years to ensure plastics perform in each specific packaging application, meeting the end consumer needs and plastic converters processing requirements. Hydrotalcite-like materials including Kisuma's DHT®-4 product range are crucial for irreversible acid catalyst residue scavenging, and have also shown large synergy with other additives boosting their performance.
As well as seeking performance enhancing solution, the packaging industry is also looking for innovative ways to become more sustainable. Kisuma continues to respond to this global challenge.
DHT®-4 products enable the development of BOPE films with optimal surface treatment properties such as corona treatment, metallization and printing. As many brand owners and converters are looking for Design for Recycling solutions, BOPE films allow transformation of multilayer packaging materials such as PET/PE laminates into mono polyethylene structures that perform with a better recycling profile.
Kisuma additives are unparalleled in quality in the plastics additives space.
DHT®-4 is an ideal additive range to support several flexible packaging solutions. For example, raffia formulations often comprise a low water-carry-over (WCO) additive package – this makes the DHT®-4 mechanism of acid scavenging the perfect match as it does not contribute to water-carry-over.
For polyolefin producers, Kisuma’s DHT®-4 acid scavengers serve many purposes across thin wall injection molding, extrusion blow molding and injection stretch blow molding processes, replacing conventional acid scavengers in order to optimize overall migration limits, physical properties and aesthetics.
