AkzoNobel presented a range of innovative antifog additives that enhance antifog performance of food packaging and agricultural films. The first product in this range is marketed under the name of Armofog 151, and improves hot and cold fog performance of polyethylene and EVA food packaging films.
The company also offers a high performance concentrate of this new antifog additive called Armofog 151-XE35.
"Customers demand easy to use antifog additives that save operational time and costs,” said Haimo Tonnaer, business development manager for AkzoNobel's Polymer Additives business. “Our Armofog 151-XE35 goes beyond standard antifog additives. This high performance concentrate allows for easy handling and dosing while offering all the advantages of pure Armofog 151."
Antifog additives offer the solution to problems related to the formation of water droplets on plastic films. In food packaging antifog additives enhance product appeal and shelf life. The need for new antifog additives also arises from the fundamental problem that exists with traditional agricultural films. Antifog performance is not durable enough.
