DSM showcases solutions for flexible food packaging, gas tank applications and connectors


Royal DSM will demonstrate how its materials have been used in some of the latest application innovations to be introduced to the market at NPE2015. DSM will highlight several of these solutions via speaker presentations at SPI and ANTEC as well as in their Customer Service Center in the West Hall, Room 225A.

DSM’s leadership in polyamide 6 (Akulon) and thermoplastic copolyester for thin film (Arnitel) for flexible food packaging is helping customers to provide better solutions to the world’s rapidly changing food packaging needs, meeting the demand for food safety and reduced food and packaging waste. DSM recently made a breakthrough in polyamide blown film processing with Akulon XS. Thanks to its improved crystallization properties, Akulon XS has an extended processing window, providing new opportunities in designing co-extruded multi-layer as well as monolayer film structures. DSM has announced plans to build a new plant for high viscosity Akulon polyamide 6 grades for film and other extrusion applications in North America.
