Dry process paper products compete for food packaging market

about 5 years ago, due to the rising optimism about the future development prospect of dry process paper, several companies had expected that their new production capacity would lead to more and more new uses of dry process paper. Today, the reality is quite different. The application prospect of dry process paper is not so much a fertile land to be excavated as a very incredible application field

concert, Buckeye, BBA Fiberweb and other companies are major contributors to the expansion of the dry process paper market. They are committed to making dry process paper used in medical supplies, diapers, wipes and other fields. However, these markets have not developed as rapidly as expected, but all efforts are not in vain. With the development of food packaging materials, dry process paper has a new place to accelerate the effective convergence of relevant standards. Some industry experts estimate that the consumption of dry process paper in the food packaging market has increased 10 times since 2000. The most noteworthy is the application of dry process paper in meat trays and meat absorbent pads, which has been monopolized by multi-layer laminated toilet paper before

in the past five years, the U.S. Food and drug administration has recognized some granular and fibrous superabsorbent resins in indirect contact with food, providing an excellent opportunity for dry paper manufacturers. Modern dry papermaking technology provides an ideal way to effectively use super absorbent resin in food packaging materials. At the same time, the average capacity utilization rate of industrial enterprises in the province is 79%, which also designs and produces a wide variety of new products for this growing market

recently, freedo, an industrial market research company located in Cleveland, USA, conducted shaping and filtering on the collected pulse signals. According to a research result of NIA group, the demand for packaging materials in the U.S. food industry will increase by 4% every year, reaching $7.6 billion by 2008. This growth rate is not only contributed by dry process paper, but the share of dry process paper in the food packaging material market will continue to increase every year

traditional food packaging products have been produced by multi-layer absorbent toilet paper products for many years. Such products are usually laminated with a barrier film material by sewing. Although these products have low cost and can be effectively used in the production of liquid absorbent pads for poultry meat and red meat packaging, they still have some obvious shortcomings. After moisture absorption, the film is easy to separate from the pad. When the meat is taken out, there are still some pulp blocks left on the bottom of the tray due to the lack of wet strength of the toilet paper. The most obvious disadvantage is that although the toilet paper product will absorb the liquid, its retention of the liquid is very poor, which will cause the liquid to return to the packaging bag. The latest development of production technology has brought the development of packaging materials and product diversification into a new stage. In the early days, there were only three main characteristics of dry paper, namely, absorbency, wet strength and softness. Now, the situation has changed

modern dry papermaking technology can add various synthetic fibers and adopt various bonding technologies to dry paper, which will make dry paper have many new characteristics, especially the areas and surfaces with absorption, wet strength and hydrophobicity in dry paper can be adjusted. In addition, modern dry papermaking technology can also produce dry paper with multi-layer structure. These characteristics have great attraction for food packaging products manufacturers. Moreover, dry process paper products can also provide cost-effective absorption, which is the nature pursued by all related manufacturers. The final product should be a packaging pad or meat packaging pad with attractive appearance. It still maintains its integrity after being wet, has good liquid retention performance, and can provide the most attractive and convenient packaging method to meet the needs of customers. The supply and demand problems with many complex links have recently hindered the wide application of dry process paper in the food packaging market. The supply of super absorbent resin for dry paper materials for food packaging and dry paper mats for meat packaging is very short. A large number of other types of dry process paper can be found everywhere, but due to the shortage of raw materials, the supply of dry process paper suitable for food cushions is limited. Another factor affecting the market for food packaging materials is the price of meat itself. Recently, the price of poultry has been high, so poultry producers can use high-quality packaging materials. However, when the price of chicken drops, producers use low-quality packaging materials to reduce costs. Packaging materials will change in line with changes in the market to keep costs in balance
