Ampacet introduces Lamslip 754

Masterbatch for laminated flexible applications with consistent slip performances

Materials - Wednesday, 6 December 2017

Polyethylene film is widely used in complex structures through adhesive lamination with other film substrates to combine the properties of the individual films (e.g. sealability, mechanical, barrier, optical etc.) and optimize the performances of the flexible packaging films. When using conventional slip additives in the polyethylene film used in laminates, film producers and converters can often face technical problems: loss of slip properties (e.g. increase of COF - coefficient of friction) after the lamination stage on one hand, and transfer of slip additive on the opposite side (e.g. PET film) affecting the COF on that side on the other hand, leading to converting issues.

Ampacet Lamslip 754 is a specialty Masterbatch solution designed to provide outstanding and consistent slip properties to laminated film structures for trouble-free converting and packing operations for food and non-food applications.

Compared to conventional slip Masterbatches, Ampacet Lamslip 754 maintains a low and consistent COF, even after adhesive lamination and avoids transfer of slip additive on the opposite side of the laminate. Being highly efficient at low addition rate, it limits converting and packing problems typically linked to fluctuating slip properties of the packaging film and prevents efficiency losses during automatic packaging process. This innovative Masterbatch technology reduces the quantity of off-specification and scrapped films and decreases the risk of claims from converters and end-users that makes it a reliable solution for laminated packaging and pouch applications.
