Most importantly our products are reliable. For example, our Akulon® resin provides an extremely effective oxygen barrier. Our NeoCryl® waterborne resins are used to formulate high-quality bottle labeling adhesives.
As well as protecting the contents of the packaging itself, DSM is also looking to improve production. One thorny problem faced by the industry in the production of polyamide film centers on the evaporation and condensation of lactams – a white powder that gets into equipment, facilities and can cause failures in the packaging film. We created a polyamide that releases less lactam into the air – saving time, money and energy.
