Food Company Creates Baby Food Packaging with DuPont™ Bynel® Resin

Large international food and beverage company chose DuPont™ Bynel® resin.

When a major food and beverage company was seeking a baby food packaging barrier that could withstand the high temperatures of sterilization for maximum shelf life, they chose DuPont™ Bynel® adhesive resin.

The customer: The European division of a large, international food and beverage company.

The challenge: The company needed a co-extrudable adhesive for a baby food packaging barrier that would withstand the high temperatures of sterilization for maximum shelf life, and would also be microwavable, lightweight, and non-breakable.

The solution: DuPont™ Bynel® adhesive resin was selected for the baby food packaging. The company then created a 100-percent recyclable, 5-layer thermoformed baby food cup with a PP/EVOH/PP sheet that is coextruded using Bynel® adhesive as a tie layer to withstand the high temperatures of sterilization for maximum shelf life.

The coextruded Bynel® adhesive withstands the rigorous thermal processing required when producing long-life, ambient stable packages. The thermoformed round-shaped cups offer a barrier to oxygen, moisture, and UV light.

The results: For its baby food cups, the company now has the benefits of:

  • An attractive and unique design that is microwavable, lightweight, and non-breakable.
  • An easy-open package for consumers.
  • Reduced transportation cost and warehouse space.
  • Long shelf life.
