PERSTORP, SWEDEN: Perstorp said that its Capa 6500D and the new 6800D grades has been approved for use in food contact in US.

By adding Capa 6800D to its product portfolio, Perstorp can now offer a higher molecular weight product to give customers more choices and flexibility in finding the right formulation.

  • Capa 6500D and Capa 6800D now approved for food contact use in the US. (Food Contact Notification by FDA)
  • The new Capa 6800D for bioplastics extends Perstorp’s range of products for biodegradable food applications
  • Capa for bioplastics is durable, stable and easy to process as well as offering best-in-class biodegradability

The new Capa 6800D grade further extends Perstorp’s Capa portfolio. It is a high molecular weight linear polyester derived from caprolactone monomer. Like Capa 6500D, the Capa 6800D variant does not compromise on performance; being just as durable, stable, and easy to process while offering best in class biodegradability.

Bioplastics is a focus area for Perstorp. It is an important part of the company’s commitment to the environment and vision for a more sustainable future. Capa for bioplastics exhibits excellent biodegradability properties and can improve bioplastic solutions, as well as enabling unique product characteristics. In the bioplastics market, Capa is typically used for applications like bags and films, paper cups and packaging.

“We have had food contact approval in Europe (EFSA) already for a few years. This approval for our Capa 6500D as well as for the new Capa 6800D verifies that Capa is safe for food applications, enabling bioplastic packaging for a more sustainable future,” said Jesper Fahlen, global product manager Capa.

“With the broader portfolio, we meet our customers’ need for formulation efficiency by offering different choices of molecular weight. By helping manufacturers move from conventional plastics to bioplastics we are, together, reducing the pollution our planet is facing,” added Marie Gronborg, executive vice president at Perstorp.
