  • Publication number: 20220176675
    Abstract: The present subject matter relates to a label lid for sealing an opening in a packaging container. The label comprises a facestock layer, a removable adhesive layer, a heat-seal layer, and an optional release coating, wherein the removable adhesive layer does not include a release liner. The removable adhesive layer can be coated on the heat-seal layer or the facestock layer. Optionally, a release coating can be applied to the heat-seal layer or the facestock layer. The composition of the layers used in specific arrangements provides unique performance characteristics for the label for improved sealing, reclosure, and matrix stripping properties.

  • Patent number: 8440281
    Abstract: Disclosed are stabilized blends of polyester and polyamide. The polymer blends are stabilized with A) a combination of stabilizers a) acetaldehyde scavengers and b) stabilizers selected from phenolic antioxidants, organic phosphorus stabilizers and lactone stabilizers or B) a combination of c) lactone stabilizers and d) stabilizers selected from phenolic antioxidants and organic phosphorus stabilizers. The present blends exhibit reduced color formation, a high level of whiteness/brightness and acceptably low haze formation upon heat treatment. The blends are useful to make bottles, containers and films for drinks, food and cosmetics and the like. The polyester is in particular polyethylene terephthalate, PET, and the polyamide is in particular polyamide-MXD6. Heat treatment is for example melt extrusion or solid state polymerization, SSP.

  • Patent number: 7655291
    Abstract: A co-extruded film including talc and a method for preparing the film includes a polyester resin containing talc. The films may be single layer films or multi-layered structures such as ABA or AB structured films. Multi-layered films have talc in at least the A layer of the multi-layered film. If talc is present in the B layer, the A layer preferably includes a greater percentage of talc relative to the percentage of talc present in said B layer. The method uses readily available, low cost talc as an additive to achieve a co-extruded polyester film having simultaneously reduced transparency and reduced gloss to provide a translucent polyester film.

  • Patent number: 7563840
    Abstract: A flame retardant polyester resin composition including polyester containing phosphorus, preferably about 0.05 to about 1.5 weight % based on the total weight of the composition, of at least one platy inorganic material. The composition provides excellent flame retardant and anti-dripping properties, especially to oriented polyester film formed from the composition. The polyester may include additional phosphorus that is covalently bonded to the polymer, or physically incorporated into the polyester such as by means of masterbatch.

  • Publication number: 20060110613
    Abstract: A metallized flame retardant polyester film comprising varying levels of phosphorous in the individual film layers. The phosphorous loading disposes the minimum amount of phosphorous required to impart flame retardancy to the film. In embodiments, the film is a multi-layer film and the outer most layer or layers of the film comprise higher levels of phosphorous than then inner most layer or layers. The inner layer or layers may be phosphorous-free. The differential phosphorous loading imparts flame retardant properties to the film while minimizing the use of costly phosphorous.
