Allinova has introduced a new range of polymer dispersions that are produced via a novel and innovative production process. This allows us to achieve very high solid contents, up to 45%, in combination with a variety of different polymers and functionalities.
One of the greatest benefits is that we are now able to produce polymer dispersions that are completely free of surfactants. On top of that, they are free of residual monomers, co-solvents and plasticizers.
Being fully approved for direct food contact according to EU 10/2011 and FDA, these products find their way in a number of applications of which flexible packaging is currently the most important.
Coatings of these polymer dispersions can for example be used as water-, grease-, or fat barrier on paper, heat seal coatings on films and aluminium foil or as a binder or functional additive in aqueous formulations as adhesion promotor.
