Resin (Products & Technology) B.V., Yparex B.V. expand operations, capabilities

RESIN B.V. and Yparex B.V. are both headquartered in Enschede. (Photo Yparex, YPAPR003)ENSCHEDE, THE NETHERLANDS — RESIN (Products & Technology) B.V., a privately held Dutch specialty-resin compounder, and its sister company, Yparex B.V., a leading supplier of extrudable tie-layer resins, both headquartered here, today announced that they have jointly made significant investments to expand their operations and service capabilities in order to serve their respective global customer base more effectively.

Yparex B.V. first to market with bio-based tie layer for greener multilayer packaging.ENSCHEDE, THE NETHERLANDS — August 27, 2012 — Yparex B.V., headquartered here, today announced that it is the first supplier in the packaging industry to develop and commercialize an adhesive tie layer for multilayer packaging films that is bio-based (i.e. produced from plant- rather than petroleum-based raw materials). Since this tie-layer resin is derived from 95% annually renewable resources and is fully recyclable, yet meets the same performance specifications as non-renewable petroleum-based polymer of the same family, it offers packaging manufacturers the opportunity to make their products more sustainable because plant precursors sequestered greenhouse gases during their life cycle. However, it also helps protect the packaging industry’s supply chain from price spikes of materials closely tied to the cost of oil and natural gas.
