Polybatch Easypour improves the dispensing of liquids from stand up pouches and other packaging formats
A. Schulman, Inc. (Nasdaq: SHLM) announces its latest material innovation, EasyPour additive masterbatches to enhance customer experience by improving the dispensing of liquids from stand up pouches and other packaging formats.
A. Schulman developed the Polybatch® EasyPour product family to manage interactions between the inner surface of plastic packaging and its contents. Optimizing polymer surface properties enables contents to flow more smoothly; resulting in improved dispensing and evacuation. The new masterbatch technology is designed for use in both flexible and rigid multilayer constructions. Formulas are customized using specialized test methods in order to optimize performance for a given packaged substance.
“A. Schulman, a global leader in additive masterbatches, is dedicated to investing in new capabilities as we continue to evolve with industry trends,” said Eric Parsons, Vice President Custom Concentrates and Solutions, A. Schulman, US & Canada. “The EasyPour innovation exemplifies our technical leadership and aims to support our flexible packaging customers with value-added solutions.”
“Initial developments focused on convenience foods in on-the-go pouch formats. As our research expands, we see additional opportunities,” said Chris Kerscher, Marketing Manager, A. Schulman. “In addition to food packaging, EasyPour masterbatches are under evaluation in household cleaning, institutional, and personal care packaging. We see strong potential for this technology in liquid refill pouches sold through the e-commerce channel”.
