Enhancing Packaging Efficiency
Plastics stand out as prevalent wrapping materials for several reasons, boasting affordability, lightweight nature, robust chemical and biological resistance, and exceptional workability. This renders them suitable for diverse package scenarios. Over the years, the integration of stabilization and functional additives has been essential to ensure plastics excel in various packaging roles, aligning with consumer needs and converter processing demands. Notably, hydrotalcite-like materials, exemplified by Kisuma’s DHT™-4 product range, play a pivotal role in irreversible acid scavenging from catalyst residue, demonstrating significant synergy with other additives to amplify overall performance.
Empowering Sustainability and Quality: Kisuma's Comprehensive Solutions
Kisuma’s additives play a pivotal role in developing lightweight plastic wrapping solutions for packing. By replacing heavier materials, our additives contribute to reduced packaging weight, leading to lower CO2 emissions during production and transportation.
Our products are meticulously formulated to deliver unmatched aesthetic appeal and superior protective attributes in film processing with superior performance and dispersion. Through careful design and testing, we ensure that the end products exhibit both exceptional visual qualities and effective safeguarding features.
Kisuma products are designed to be versatile, making them applicable to a wide range of plastic materials. This adaptability facilitates the pursuit of plastic circularity goals by enabling the reuse and recycling of diverse plastics, aligning with sustainability objectives.
Advancing Sustainability in the Packaging Sector
Kisuma is at the forefront of driving sustainability in the packaging industry. Our DHT™-4 products enable the creation of BOPE films with superior surface treatments, while also aiding in the transition from PET/PE laminates to more recyclable mono polyethylene structures. With a commitment to quality and innovation, Kisuma leads in the realm of plastics additives.
Packaging Product Applications
DHT™-4 proves a prime additive range for diverse flexible packaging solutions. Specifically, in raffia formulations, where low water-carry-over (WCO) is essential, DHT™-4's acid scavenging mechanism aligns perfectly, preventing water-carry-over.
Kisuma's DHT™-4 acid scavengers offer polyolefin producers versatile benefits across thin wall injection molding, extrusion blow molding, and injection stretch blow molding processes. By replacing traditional acid scavengers, they optimize migration limits, physical attributes, and aesthetics.
DHT™-4's non-migratory nature enables the fine-tuning of film surfaces for vital processing stages like metallization, corona/plasma treatments, printing, and lamination. These steps are essential for unlocking film surface potential, packaging's function and durability.
DHT™-4 offers an alternative to calcium stearate as an acid scavenger, effectively addressing blooming issues in thermoforming. This translates to enhanced optics, improved surface attributes including printability and sealability.
