Improve flexible packaging barrier performance in compliance with circular economy guidelines
The GASTOP-Flex™ masterbatch range effectively reduces oxygen and water vapor transmission rates by up to 60% in general purpose flexible packaging to preserve product integrity while it helps brand owners down-gauge packaging structures to reduce weight.
Without increasing oxygen permeation, GASTOP-Flex™ allows reduction of EVOH below 5% in high-barrier food packaging, in compliance with design guidelines for a circular economy.
GASTOP-Flex is designed for use in monolayer as well as multi-layer general purpose and barrier polyethylene films on conventional as well as MDO (Machine Direction Orientation) stretching film equipment.
GASTOP-Flex is approved for food contact applications in Europe and complies with FDA requirements.
