[China Packaging News] at present, plastic packaging materials account for more than 30% of the total amount of various packaging materials, second only to paper products. In China's food packaging materials, the application of plastic has exceeded 50% of the total amount of food packaging materials, ranking first among all kinds of packaging materials. So, what are the current development trends of plastic packaging materials used in the food industry? Let's take a look at several cases to reduce the complexity of the problem

from hard packaging to lighter and more environmentally friendly soft packaging

modern food packaging not only provides physical protection for food and its contents, but also helps extend the shelf life of food, provide product information and display brand image, making it more convenient for consumers to use daily. Compared with other packaging materials and forms, such as glass, metal and hard plastic packaging, soft plastic packaging is more environmentally friendly, saves raw materials and transportation costs, and thus better meets the needs of the modern packaging industry

according to the prediction of Smithers Pira, the Asia Pacific region will become the fastest-growing consumer goods flexible packaging market in the future

PacXpert ™ It is the most advanced packaging technology in the industry at present. It adopts a unique lightweight design. The durable handle designed according to the ergonomic principle can help users dump accurately. When empty, the packaging bag can be flat and convenient for storage and transportation. Although it is called flexible packaging technology, whether it is placed vertically or sideways, pacxpert ™ The packaging can stand steadily and ensure excellent storage performance. Pacxpert is used for the span of two bearings for adjusting zigzag attachments ™ The technical packaging bag also has a large shelf display space, which makes it easier to "lock" the sight of consumers and make them have purchase intention

in addition, pacxpert ™ Technology can also bring considerable environmental benefits. It can not only avoid the waste of packaging contents to the greatest extent, but also reduce the consumption of raw materials and improve the product packaging ratio. In addition to being sought after by customers, from 2013 to now, Dow pacxpert ™ Technology has collected all the eight strength awards in the global packaging industry

Dow pacxpert ™ Flexible packaging technology has been highly praised since its inception, from Europe to Latin America, from Latin America to the Asia Pacific, pacxpert ™ Gradually set off a new trend of flexible packaging in the world. With pacxpert ™ Technology takes root in China, which will undoubtedly open a broader application prospect for it, and pacxpert ™ Technology will also promote China's packaging industry from hard packaging to lighter and more environmentally friendly flexible packaging

food composite packaging film tends to be multifunctional and lightweight

in terms of special materials for functional food packaging, China's R & D and production capacity is still relatively weak. In the future, the food industry will continue to increase the demand for functional films such as high barrier, cooking resistance, UV resistance, light avoidance, antibacterial, breathable, oxygen free, and so on. At the same time, there is a trend towards lightweight development

ExxonMobil launched iquid at k show 2016 ™ XP has two new brands to further expand its product range. These new brands are applicable to shrink flexible packaging and food composite packaging, providing significant performance advantages for film processors and end users

since its launch, iquid XP has been very popular in the market, and customers have reported that the performance level of the product has been improved to a new level. These new brands reinforce this positive impact. Iquid XP 6026 and iquid XP 6056 have excellent processing properties, which can provide stronger toughness, rubbing resistance, heat sealing performance, balanced shrinkage and good optical properties. For processors, the high melt strength of these polymers can achieve higher foam stability and increase production

food packaging film produced with the new brand of iquide XP

food packaging film produced with the new brand of iquide XP (including large and small packages) has excellent toughness and heat sealing performance, which can help brands protect frozen or dry food, meat and cheese products from production to consumption. The melt strength and toughness of eged XP can reduce the film thickness while maintaining high performance. Processors can take advantage of the extraordinary performance and processing performance of these iqid XP brands to simplify product inventory and reduce costs

with the public's increasing awareness of reducing food waste and extending product shelf life, the demand for special barrier film for food flexible packaging began to show a continuous upward trend. Nowadays, most diaphragm products are often coextruded through film blowing production lines, usually with 7-layer, 9-layer or even 11 layer membrane structures. Polyamide 6 (PA6) has good barrier property and mechanical strength. It is an ideal material for producing blown film grade food packaging film. However, the high crystallization rate of polyamide 6 will limit its processing window. Therefore, processors need to make concessions in terms of production efficiency, or improve their processing performance by mixing polyamide 6 with special amorphous polyamide or polyamide copolymer, but this will greatly reduce the cost-effective advantage of this kind of film

akulon developed by DSM ® XS solves this problem. This cost-effective advanced technology effectively combines barrier, printability, heat sealing and impact resistance. Compared with traditional polyamide 6, akulon ® The crystallization speed of XS in the film bubble is much slower, which provides a larger operating space for processors in terms of processing conditions, making it more convenient and efficient to produce flexible packaging films for food while retaining the unique barrier and mechanical properties of polyamide 6

Akulon ® XS not only has good mechanical strength, puncture resistance and barrier performance, but also can produce thinner films, bringing quality and cost advantages and reducing waste

in addition, EVOH, as a high barrier material, has excellent gas resistance, transparency, gloss, mechanical strength, flexibility, wear resistance, cold resistance and surface strength. In food packaging, EVOH's plastic containers can replace glass and metal containers. EVOH high barrier resin brought by kololi at Chinaplas 2016 can provide excellent gas barrier performance and chemical resistance, and can be used in multi-layer structures

biological packaging and degradable packaging have broad prospects.

consumers are increasingly concerned about environmental protection. How to reduce the consumption of fossil products from the source and make plastic with low water absorption become a topic of concern for enterprises. Among them, bio based packaging materials have become an important choice

not long ago, Tetra Pak launched the world's first sterile paper packaging with the highest level of certification - a 1-liter Tetra Pak sterile packaging made of biomass plastic and equipped with a 30mm lightweight cover. The newly packaged plastic film and cover opening are polymerized from sugarcane extract. Together with cardboard, the proportion of renewable raw materials in the whole package has reached more than 80%, which has won the four-star certification

in another independent life cycle analysis report conducted by IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, the carbon footprint of new packaging is 17% lower than that of standard packaging. Tetra Pak peak aseptic packaging with biomass plastic and a 30mm lightweight cover has been sold worldwide, and customers do not need additional equipment capital investment to switch to new packaging

natureworks launched Ingeo biopolymer at Chinaplas 2016, and exhibited a new high barrier flexible packaging film made by Italian metalvuoto company using Ingeo materials, which is specially designed for the preservation of processed food. This is the first time Ingeo has been applied to the field of processed food packaging bags with long shelf life

natureworks extracts glucose from corn starch as raw material for Ingeo production. Through fermentation, separation and polymerization, the carbon and other elements in these natural sugars are transformed into a series of Ingeo products of different models. It is widely used in hard food packaging, such as disposable tableware, yogurt, and soft food packaging

ingeo is the first low-carbon functional material in the world. It is made from plants rather than oil, and 100% of it comes from renewable and resource rich plant materials every year. Corn starch currently used is the first generation of transitional raw materials. In the future, bypassing agricultural steps and directly converting carbon dioxide or methane into green substrates will be the development direction of NatureWorks

ingeo products have obtained food contact compliance in many regions of the world. It is a degradable material used in municipal or industrial composting equipment. With environmental and functional advantages, it can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce the consumption of petrochemical energy, and maintain the aroma of food

packaging materials are mostly disposable products. In order to reduce the impact of packaging waste on the environment, waste reduction treatment has become one of the development directions of plastic packaging. In the process of reduction, biodegradable materials play a leading role. With the improvement of environmental protection regulations and the enhancement of consumers' awareness of environmental protection, the domestic biodegradable plastic packaging market is also expanding, and biodegradable materials will usher in more development opportunities during the "13th five year plan" period

TEGO ® Glide a 116 creates excellent printing quality

according to the latest research report of ASD, the market demand for biodegradable plastic packaging will maintain an average annual growth rate of more than double digits from 2013 to 2019, and the global market value of biodegradable plastic packaging will exceed US $8.415 billion by 2019. The report predicts that food and beverage packaging will be the largest major application field of biodegradable plastics, in which polylactic acid and starch based plastics will continue to dominate the biodegradable plastic packaging market, and biodegradable plastics used for food packaging account for more than 70%

a high-tech company from Wuhan, China provides tableware for the Brazilian Olympic Games. This company uses straw, bamboo powder, plant starch and other renewable raw materials to produce biodegradable bioplastics products. More than 2 million sets of bioplastics tableware produced by this company have become the designated supplies for the Rio Olympic Games. These bio plastic tableware are not only conducive to health, but also environmentally friendly

green, environmental friendly and safe packaging additives are very popular.

with the enhancement of safety awareness and the improvement of environmental protection standards, consumers pay more and more attention to the health and safety performance of plastic packaging. The greening of plastic packaging is not only reflected in the product itself, but also the volatile organic pollutants (VOCs) emitted in the production process are increasingly restricted. With the implementation of the action plan for the prevention and control of air pollution in China, plastic packaging and printing enterprises are facing severe challenges

printing ink has high requirements for formula, especially for the packaging market, the ink formula must be high-quality, reliable and comply with the requirements of various laws and regulations. TEGO ® Glide a 116 is a high-efficiency smoothing additive launched by Evonik industrial group, which is suitable for solvent based printing applications. It is easy to process and has a good relationship with other materials
