We are happy to announce that we will start distributing Aquapak’s Hydropol™ on an exclusive basis as a barrier film in all European countries, except Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Aquapak, specialises in polymer-based material technologies which deliver both performance and environmental responsibility at scale.
Aquapak, has successfully developed and commercialised Hydropol™, a high-performance polymer that enables product design to provide its much-needed functionality whilst increasing recycling and reducing plastic pollution. When extrusion coated or laminated onto paper, HydropolTM adds strength and barriers to oxygen, oil and grease, and its solubility allows 100% paper fibre recovery through paper recycling mills. As well as being biodegradable and compostable, it is non-toxic to the environment and marine-safe, so it still has a safe end-of-life if it is not disposed of as intended.
The announcement comes at a time when the most widely used oxygen barrier, ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), is currently in short supply worldwide and is only available through limited market channels. Aquapak has developed its Hydropol™ technology, based around Polyvinylalcohol (PVOH) for use as a highly functional oxygen barrier capable of replacing EVOH in many applications, and therefore fits well into our product range of polymers used in barrier packaging.
We will also be named as distributor on an exclusive basis for other applications for Hydropol™ and with certain customers where we have particularly strong commercial relationships, and on a non-exclusive basis for other applications.
