Rayonier Advanced Materials recently announced a definitive agreement under which Rayonier Advanced Materials will acquire Tembec. With its expanded geographic reach, enhanced R&D capabilities and broader, more flexible asset base, the combined company will offer customers exceptional product breadth across the spectrum of high purity cellulose products and create additional growth opportunities in packaging and forest products.
Amcor today introduced ACT2100™ heat seal coating for medical grade DuPont™ Tyvek®2 and paper packaging applications. This next generation coating technology delivers enhanced performance features for healthcare applications and will be produced in multiple locations worldwide to offer customers increased flexibility to be supplied from the most suitable location for the manufacturing and packaging of their devices.
Customers choosing ACT2100 will benefit from the solution’s broader seal range in combination with numerous materials, allowing for a wider operating window in their manufacturing operations, as well as enhanced seal strength for more robust package integrity through distribution.
Consumers will enjoy speedier ethylene oxide sterilization cycles thanks to the material’s improved porosity, a fiber-free peel, and a bright, white adhesive that does not yellow. In addition, documentation and data will be available to support healthcare packaging regulatory requirements in all regulated markets.
The ACT2100 heat seal adhesive will be added to Amcor’s existing portfolio of well-known, high-performance Tyvek adhesives including CR27® and SBP2000® heat seal coatings. This allows our customers to choose to leverage traditional validations with legacy products or use ACT2100 for newer requirements.
This exciting innovation builds on our reputation for high-quality, reliable performance heat sealing adhesives for medical grade papers and Tyvek material, including Amcor’s CR27 adhesive, which has been an industry standard and highly trusted for nearly four decades. We’re proud of our new packaging solution, especially since it has been developed leveraging the best of CR27 with improvements that are aligned with our customer’s continuously evolving requirements.
