Projectbeschrijving

Yparex B.V. is a leading supplier of extrudable adhesive resins for multilayer applications. Founded in 1989, the company has developed a full range of high-quality, high-tech tie-layer resins that meet the demanding needs of customers in a broad range of application areas.

Based on maleic anhydride-(MAH)-modified and functionalized polyolefin compounds, Yparex produces extrudable adhesive tie-layer resins that provide outstanding adhesion between all forms of poyolefin-based resins and other materials including metals (aluminium, steel, and copper) and barrier plastics (polyamides (nylons) and ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH).

Yparex adhesive tie-layer resins are widely used in numerous application areas and industries: multilayer packaging films (e.g. barrier films for food packaging, industrial films with oxygen barrier, and medical packaging), multilayer pipe applications, multilayer cladding panels, cable jacketing and compatibilizers.

Yparex is the first supplier in the packaging industry to develop and commercialize an adhesive tie layer for multilayer packaging films that is bio-based. Since this tie-layer resin (Yparex Renew) is derived from >90% annually renewable resources and is fully recyclable, yet meets the same performance specifications as non-renewable petroleum-based polymer of the same family, it offers packaging manufacturers the opportunity to make their products more sustainable because plant precursors sequestered greenhouse gases during their life cycle. However, it also helps protect the packaging industry’s supply chain from price spikes of materials closely tied to the cost of oil and natural gas.
