Yparex® Renew, a bio-based tie layer for greener multilayer packaging
Yparex is the first supplier in the industry to offer a bio-based adhesive tie layer. This bio-based tie layer resin is used in highly engineered multilayer packaging where oxygen-barrier, transparency, food safety, and structural integrity are crucial to prevent premature food spoilage and waste.
Packaging designers and manufacturers are now able to produce multilayer packaging with fewer carbon kilometers, particularly when the tie layer is used in combination with other bio-based packaging resins.
