First Film Based on Nylon 410

Applications in flexible food packaging, building/construction, medical, more.

Article From: 4/29/2013 Plastics Technology

The first films made from EcoPaxx nylon 410 from Royal DSM of the Netherlands
(U.S. office in Evansville, Ind.) have been introduced by DSM’s German development partner, MF-Folien, a leading expert in nylon film production. Samples of EcoPaxx 410 film are available in 30-, 40-, and 50-micron thickness for potential applications in flexible food packaging, building/construction, medical, aviation, and shipping.

Nylon 410 films have higher moisture barrier than nylon 6 films and a comparable oxygen barrier. When fully wet, the oxygen barrier on nylon 410 is even higher. Nylon 410 is based in part on castor
oil. Three grades of EcoPaxx recently were certified by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) as having a biobased content of around 70%.
