Polymax Thermoplastic Elastomers, Inc., a leading manufacturer and custom compounder of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) materials, has launched new TPE grades for sensory-sensitive applications.

TPE grades provide organoleptic neutrality and very good sealing properties

In response to the high market demand for better packaging materials that protect the freshness, quality and safety of food and beverages, the company has developed new grades that now provide low extractables, organoleptic neutrality, very good sealing properties and superior clarity. As a result, the new sensory-sensitive TPEs are suitable for a wide range of applications in food and beverage packaging, transport and storage.

Material used to manage permeation of carbon dioxide, water vapor and oxygen

Specialty compounds and formulations of PolymaxTPE sensory-sensitive materials can be used to manage permeation of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and oxygen, in addition to improving sealing properties in applications such as screw cap liners and engineered wine closures. In addition, these materials can be used in tubing for the delivery of dairy products, commercial food packaging, and bagin-box wine. The PolymaxTPE sensory-sensitive product grades meet most food and beverage contact standards of the FDA, EU and GB, and are fully recyclable.
