Surlyn Skin Film
OVERVIEW
Surlyn Skin Film is a extremely strong, high clarity, highly durable packaging film made from the DuPont Surlyn resin. It is used in conjunction with a special coated board to create a protective and or retail package. Crystal-clear DuPont™ Surlyn® skin film enables automated assembly of scratch-susceptible components, saves raw material and process energy Applied using a modified skin-film process, the combination of a highly-transparent base film derived from Surlyn® and a specially tailored adhesive resin, both from DuPont, provides reliable protection for susceptible components – from their production and assembly right through to their first use by consumers – and saves material as well as process energy compared to alternative polyethylene films.

    Application Profile:
    Appliance manufacturer Miele is among the first to use new DuPont packaging film that both saves energy and reduces waste, the companies say. The skin packaging is based on DuPont Surlyn, a highly transparent polymer designed to protect susceptible, three-dimensional component surfaces. Miele is using the technology at its plant in Warendorf, Germany, to prevent high-gloss, thermoplastic bezels for washing machines from becoming scratched as they make their way through the fully automated assembly line to retail and, ultimately, to the end-user's home. The tailored skin packaging process helps prevent rejects and the corresponding raw-material waste, Miele says.

    The skin-film itself, and its production residue, can be recycled in the polyethylene waste stream.? Surlyn weighs about one third less than polyethylene, which was the material used in an early development stage, DuPont and Jura-Plast say. The film also offers good heat absorption that makes it stretchable after only 10 seconds of heating, compared to about 15 seconds required for polyethylene, when working with Zappe's SKVA-5050 3D skin-packaging machine, the company says. This saves process energy and helps achieve short cycle times. Surlyn's chemical structure makes it melt-stable and tough even when heated, a particularly important quality for three-dimensional components, because it enables high draw ratios without the risk of the film tearing at the edges.

    The formulation of its base layer also ensures that no air bubbles form between the film and the component surface, improving appearance. The use of a modified resin makes component-film adhesion high enough for a fully assembled 5 kg washing machine door to be transported using vacuum grippers. At the same time, the consumer can easily peel off the film and leave no residue behind.
