The full package in high-performance resins

Packaging that packs a punch

The way consumers think and feel about packaging – in all its dimensions – is changing radically. Distinctive packaging that resonates emotionally with the user is a huge differentiator for brands. But, of course, we’re also increasingly emotionally connected on another level. Is it safe? Is it sustainable? Is it wasteful? And, perhaps most importantly, does it possess the functional properties needed for packaging to fulfill its purpose long term – for example, by extending the shelf life of the product within?

Increasingly, our family of resin solutions for packaging is meeting all these needs, while delivering durable, high-functioning and reliable coatings and inks that fulfill their primary function of adhesion in everything from metal cans and rigid metal packaging to flexible and food packaging to paper and board printing. Truly, resin solutions that stick.
