The development of a matt effect on plastic surfaces can greatly differentiate the appearance of packaging articles and therefore bring additional value to the packager or the brand owner.
A. Schulman has developed a range of Polybatch DUL® compounds for the production of matt surfaces in a wide rage of extrusion processes (e.g. BOPP, cast, blown, sheet, calendaring) and blow moulding.
Polybatch DUL® compounds have been designed to improve overall processing conditions, such as, among others:
- lower pressure in front of filter to allow higher throughput,
- good coextrusion properties
- reduced die build up
The main applications of these Polybatch DUL® compounds are found in the production of matt tape base films, matt films for lamination on paper and cardboard, and packaging films that combine reverse print, dry or wet, laminated onto PE, CPP or BOPP.
In addition these Polybatch DUL® compounds have excellent interlayer adhesion properties and provide excellent performance in a variety of converting techniques such as metallization, lamination or UV curing.
