Chinese firm announces nano-enabled packaging products

Oct. 5, 2006 — Shanghai Jinkui Packaging Material Company Limited of Ningbo, China, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dragon International Group Corp., announced it has completed the development of two new packaging products by using nanotechnologies.

The new packaging products are intended to provide innovative solutions for the pharmaceutical and food packaging industries. Dragon International is one of China’s leading manufacturers and distributors of specialty paper products and packaging materials.

Shanghai Jinkui announced it has received the written notice from the Intellectual Property Rights Bureau of China, indicating the bureau has accepted the patent application of the high isolation alto-extruded multi-layer film/sheet material.

Dragon says its R&D team has developed these new packaging technologies in partnership with a Fortune 500 company, utilizing nanotechnologies and materials. The products are alto-extruded and compounded by many kinds of materials and are non-PVC and non-toxic drugs packaging material. One of the materials is provided by Dragon’s Fortune 500 partner, whose main business is in the special chemistry, textile fiber and plastic businesses.

The emerging packaging line is to be used for medical infusion, quick-freeze and fast food markets. Dragon’s new packaging solution would substitute PVDC/PVC tablet and capsule solutions that are currently used for pharmaceutical packaging.
