Creating Safe and Convenient Packaging Solutions


The Issue:

With the ever-growing population and improving food habits, there is an increasing demand for packaged fruit juices globally.  Juice manufacturers in India face a challenge in distribution due to the country’s vast geography, hot and humid climate, and less-formal retail outlets. They need lightweight, yet sturdy packaging solutions that can keep fruit juices fresh and hygienic to provide a safe and convenient option for consumers.

The Challenge:

Tetra Pak wants to develop a new fruit juice package that will protect its contents from moisture and other environmental elements. However, it is critical that they select the right material for lamination to withstand the acidity of fruit juices, which can cause separation between layers of the packaging material and compromise the integrity of the package.  

The Solution:

Working with Tetra Pak, DuPont scientists developed customized DuPont™ Nucrel® acid copolymer grades that are designed to meet all of their performance needs. DuPont™ Nucrel® provides an outstanding, chemically-resistant bond to various materials with toughness, durability, and flex crack resistance.

With DuPont polymer technology, the Tetra Pak package ensures that fruit juices can be preserved for a longer period of time without the need for preservatives or refrigeration, allowing juice manufacturers to expand their distribution reach in a cost-effective way.
