APT Launch New Project with Mitsui Chemical Europe and EVAL Europe to Develop New Milk Packaging

Advanced Polymer Trading FZC has launched a new project with Mitsui Chemical Europe and EVAL Europe to develop the usage of ADMER and EVAL in milk packaging.

Advanced Polymer Trading (APT), an international trading company specialising in the world wide trade of rubber, plastics and petrochemicals, has started a new project together with Mitsui Chemical Europe and EVAL Europe to develop new ways of using ADMER and EVAL in milk packaging.

EVAL Europe’s EVOH copolymer resins are particularly suited for food applications where it acts as a functional barrier. Keeping oxygen out, an EVAL layer can preserve the flavour and the quality of the milk and protect sensitive vitamin content.

ADMER adhesive resin, manufactured by Mitsui Chemical Europe, is a functionally modified polyolefin that serves as a tie layer in multilayer applications such as films used for food packaging. These special films contain barrier materials such as EVAL to protect the filling from oxygen, odors and UV-light and thus prolong the shelf-life of the packed goods.

EVAL and ADMER are excellent products and work well together.” said Mr. Hamid Amiri, APT’s Managing Director. “We are very excited to start this new project targeting milk packaging.”

This new venture with Mitsui Chemical Europe and EVAL Europe builds on the existing agreements already in place with APT.
