Dow Chemical releases High Performance Packaging Resins

A new family of resins which offer high performance levels for packaging has been launched by the Dow Chemical Company’s Packaging and Specialty Plastics business.

INNATE aims to provide new packaging opportunities through balance, processing ease, and improved sustainability profiles that will empower customers.

David Parrillo, global R&D director for Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics, said “The chemistry behind INNATE resins allows customers to control properties like never before to create a new standard of performance through a combination of film stiffness, toughness and processability, all from one packaging resin.”

The INNATE product is expected to define and create new market categories ranging from flexible food packaging to heavy-duty industrial shipping sacks.

Dow Resins offers film toughness without compromising stiffness and a processing ease that is not otherwise found in other precision combinations delivering food, consumer and industrial packages.
