Sealants, Adhesives, and Modifiers for Polymer Packaging
DuPont collaborates with equipment manufacturers, converters, and brand owners to create high-performance packaging structures that help reduce cost and environmental impact.
From keeping food fresh to storing medicines safely, DuPont polymer packaging resins help packages stay secure and intact throughout the distribution chain. And they contribute to reduced packaging, creating less waste.
DuPont offers a range of resins to meet specific needs. Adhesive resins create a strong bond between dissimilar materials, while sealant resins offer leak-free durability. Barrier resins preserve freshness, reduce flavor transfer, and extend shelf life. Modifier resins help improve packaging structure performance. Peelable lidding resins can seal to, and peel off of, almost anything. Resins for molded goods offer outstanding durability and decorating flexibility.
With our unique capabilities, from polymer development, to compounding and processing facilities, to end-use trial runs and testing, we deliver differentiated performance no matter the polymer packaging resin application.
