Arnitel Eco for ovenable pan liners

Michael Schmal, M & Q President, said: "Our current range of conventional pan liners already has a number of key benefits, the new PanSaver Eco panliners are extremely durable and environmentally friendly, able to withstand temperatures up to 400 F (204 °C). These liners not only help to improve food quality and yield, they also prevent food from baking or burning to the pot or pan, thus saving cooking and clean-up time, and leaving no food residue or waste."Arnitel Eco is a partly bio-based thermoplastic copolyester (using rapeseed oil) from DSM Engineering Plastics. It was firstly introduced in 2010, and is suited for food related applications, as well as for use in automotive interior and exterior, applications in sports and leisure, furniture, consumer electronics and alternative energy.Paul Habets, Global Segment Manager for DSM Engineering Plastics, says: "There is a clear customer need for bio-based engineering plastics which combine performance with a reduced carbon footprint. Life Cycle Assessment calculations of Arnitel Eco show a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, cradle-to-gate, of up to 50% versus oil based thermoplastic copolyester elastomers."
