Dow, Thong Guan launch biobased cling film in Asia Pacific

July 27, 2020 |

In Singapore, plastics giant Dow and cling-film maker Thong Guan have introduced a biobased polyethylene plastic stretch film for the Asia-Pacific market.

Under the terms of their collaboration, Thong Guan will be using Dow’s biobased linear low-density polyethylene resin made from tall oil, a residue of paper production, to produce the Nano Bio range of stretch films. The films use nanotechnology to downgauge but provide increased strength, flexibility, and durability.

“To achieve our new sustainability targets, Dow is committed to implementing and advancing technologies to manufacture products using fewer resources, thereby helping our customers to reduce their carbon footprint. Introducing Dow’s first bio-based polyethylene in Asia Pacific based on renewable feedstock is an important step in this direction,” said Bambang Candra, Asia Pacific commercial vice president of Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics.
