Specialty Packaging

 
 
 
 
 
 

DuPont Global Specialty Solutions (GSS) is a business of DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences fully dedicated to serving industrial markets.

GSS offers innovative polymer solutions to the packaging and specialty paper industry, such as, METHOCEL™, WALOCEL™ CRT and ETHOCEL™ cellulose ethers, POLYOX™ water-soluble resins and Scogin® alginates. Most of our polymers have film forming properties that can provide functional properties to a wide range of packaging materials.

 
 
 

Carton Packaging for Consumer Goods

Recent regulatory and consumer trends have created new requirements for carton packaging for food and food contact applications. Novel film barrier technologies are being developed to avoid migration of packaging compounds into foods and other packaged consumer goods. Our polymers enable:

  • Film barrier technology, for fats, oils, aliphatic and aromatic compounds (MOSH  and MOAH) and other chemicals
  • Usage in packaging of food products: many of our products are approved food additives which includes food contact approval
  • The development of customized grades to meet our customers application requirements

Other Film and Packaging Applications

Antistatic films and packaging

With their high electrical conductivity, POLYOX™ water-soluble polymers are ideal for anti-static films and packaging for circuit boards and other sensitive electronic products. They can be formed into flexible films, using either thermoplastic or casting processing. These films may be made of POLYOX™ alone or blended with a wide variety of other polymers such as polyethylene, polystyrene, polycaprolactone, ethylene vinyl acetate and nylon.
