SHENZHEN, China – April 13, 2021 – As ready-to-eat foods, ready-to-cook foods, and food delivery services experience rapid growth, the demand for better food packaging has also increased. Today at Chinaplas 2021, Avient unveiled the next-generation of its anti-fog additive, CESA™ Nofog Plus, which helps prevent fog for both hot and cold packaging.
By reducing moisture accumulation, CESA Nofog Plus helps prolong the shelf life of packaged foods. It can clear fogging immediately in hot conditions, and within 5 minutes in cold conditions. Lids and protective films produced with this food contact-safe additive also remain clear, so that consumers can observe the food quality.
This additive can be used in both rigid and flexible food packaging, including mono- and multilayer structures. It is suitable for thermoformed sheets as well as transparent food packaging, agricultural, and protective films.
“By helping to maintain the freshness of food in packaging and limiting the growth of bacteria and fungi, it’s possible to reduce food waste and improve food hygiene,” said Say-Eng Lee, vice president and general manager, Color & Additives Asia.
Available as a solid masterbatch, the additive can be extruded with packaging resins without the need for extra equipment. It is also compliant with US FDA and EU regulations.
Avient is advancing packaging performance and sustainability through innovation and collaboration, and will be exhibiting these capabilities at Chinaplas 2021 in hall 16, booth 16J41.
