ColorMatrix™ Liquid Denesting Additive
If you’re manufacturing PET sheet for food packaging thermoformed containers, you know how important it is to consistently create the right amount of slip so that stacked containers will separate easily. Did you know that this property also enables printing, metallization and sealing to be completed without any issues? Nested containers without this property tend to stick together and cause costly manufacturing disruptions, such as picking errors, scrap generation, and equipment downtime.
It’s clear that the correct slip and amount of slip is important, but it’s equally critical to achieve this effect without compromising container transparency. Why? Hazy containers tend to create issues with brand owners and end users.
What if you could create a consistent, adequate level of slip during sheet manufacture, at a competitive cost, without haze or transparency issues.
ColorMatrix™ Liquid Denesting additive provides this and more by lowering the coefficient of friction (COF) on the surface of thermoformed containers to allow their easy separation. At the same time, it does not create issues with transparency, sealing, printing, or metallization. Unlike silicone and other liquid denesting additives, ColorMatrix™ Liquid Denesting additive doesn't require extra steps in the manufacturing process and also offers a consistent level of performance due to accurate liquid dosing technology.
With ColorMatrix™ Liquid Denesting agent, you’ll be able to:
- Provide a consistent level of slip performance by reducing the CoF on the surface of a thermoformed article, allowing for easier separation when stacked
- Reduce scrap and production downtime caused by containers that bind together during packaging operations
- Eliminate the need for drying
- Preserve the transparency of PET packaging
- Comply with European and FDA packaging requirements
