Regarding the polyolefin dispersion CANVERA?, it is mainly used in the preparation of canned coatings for food packaging.
Because it does not contain BPA and bisphenol A, it can replace traditional epoxy under higher-level food safety and environmental packaging regulations.
CANVERA® adopts Dow Chemical's BLUEWAVE® dispersion technology in the production process, thereby realizing a 100% water-based polyolefin dispersion system, which can be directly applied to in-tank coatings, and its environmental protection and safety indicators can replace epoxy systems
In terms of coating performance, CANVERA® can be used to prepare ultra-thin thermoplastic lining coatings in cans, which have a very good effect on the preservation of food and spices.
The coating not only has excellent adhesion and anti-corrosion properties, but also has excellent coating properties.
Flexibility can also satisfy packaging containers of different shapes
