DuPont wants to surprise again with Surlyn

Surlyn, the famous resin developed by DuPont in the mid-1960s, is still able to surprise! Anyway, that’s what DuPont intends to demonstrate during the next Luxe Pack tradeshow - October 19-21 in Monaco - through the display of a large array of forms, textures, colours and special effects for the packaging of perfumes and cosmetics – only made possible bythe innovative process of over-moulding polymer inserts with Surlyn.

Among the recent and striking applications of Surlyn feature by the 50 ml and 100 ml bottles for the new male and female fragrance from Cesare Paciotti, produced under license by the Italian company Weruska & Joel, based in Turin. The distinguishing hallmark of the Paciotti brand, best known for its high quality shoes, is a sparkling dagger: an emblem that has been faithfully reproduced in the caps moulded from Surlyn PC2000 by G. Candiani, an Italian manufacturer headquartered in Tradate, and specialising in plastic packaging and components for the cosmetics industry.

The challenge of this design was to have the dagger, made of PC/ABS, perfectly suspended in the centre of the solid Surlyn cap,” explains Mr. Carlo Candiani, owner of G. Candiani. “We considered no other material beyond Surlyn for the cap itself, as it remains unique for the production of thick parts with a clear, glass-like quality without sink marks or voids.

DuPont will showcase commercial applications and prototypes illustrating how the perfume and cosmetic packaging industry’s increasing familiarity with Surlyn 3D over-moulding technology (3D – the D’s standing for Design, Decoration and Depth).
