SURLYN™ Ionomers

Are your packaging applications in good shape?

Good looks. Great qualities. Versatility. No wonder SURLYN™ Ionomers easily morph into both flexible and rigid packaging applications. And excel with innovative uses in each.

Flexible packaging for today and tomorrow

SURLYN™ Ionomers have long been a go-to option for flexible packaging formats such as sachets, pillow pouches, flow-wrap packages, composite cans and stand-up pouches. SURLYN™ Ionomers are used in a wide variety of food and non-food packaging, as well as pharma and medical packaging applications.The reasons are many:

  • Low sealing temperature
  • Very broad sealing temperature range
  • Excellent hot tack strength
  • Very high clarity and gloss for see-through films
  • Excellent oil/grease resistance
  • Superb thermoformability
  • Outstanding seal through contamination
  • Very good aluminum adhesion
  • Puncture resistance
  • Scratch resistance

Recent trends toward vacuum skin packaging have opened new possibilities for uses. SURLYN™ Ionomers have everything this popular application needs. They deliver uniform deformation during thermoforming. Their combination of high shrink rate and low shrink force means a tight draw around the package while maintaining the original shape of even the most delicate products. The always-present puncture resistance completes the package.

High-gloss appeal for rigid packaging innovations

The same aspects of durability and optics found in SURLYN™ Ionomers’ flexible applications translate to distinctive rigid packaging uses – particularly products projecting a higher-end look and feel.

In cosmetic packaging, injected molded structures bring scratch resistance, chemical resistance and excellent aesthetics – transparency in particular – to distinctive caps and closures.

Rigid containers benefit from an almost mirror-like high-gloss appeal. And those containers can stretch the imagination for uses – from hair care and other personal care items to a variety of beverages, spirits and liquors. There’s impact resistance behind the good looks, too.

Historic dependability. The shape of things to come. Where could SURLYN™ Ionomers take your packaging applications?
