A new adhesion-promoter masterbatch is said to improve sealability of blown nylon film for food pouches and bags that can be heated in a microwave, toaster oven, or hot water. Developed by Techmer PM, Clinton, Tenn., PNM13286 is used at letdown rates of 2% to 5% as an alternative to typical maleated polymers used to improve adhesion of nylon to nylon. It is formulated for food-contact applications and has a nylon carrier so that there is no need to change extrusion conditions.
