AntiSkid from Ampacet Corp. features new additive technology for flexible packaging applications that require a non-slip surface, whether for optimum functionality or for visual and tactile appeal.

Available in a variety of particle sizes, AntiSkid contains proprietary organic anti-skid ingredients. It is available in particle sizes similar to medium (100 grit) and coarse (40 grit) sandpaper. Particle concentrations can be adjusted higher or lower, depending on anti-slip application needs. AntiSkid can be used in 2-mil or greater multi-layer films, and is suitable for blown and cast film and sheet extrusion processes under normal conditions.

In addition to its anti-slip advantages, AntiSkid performs well during the extrusion process and can easily be combined with other functional and special effects additives to achieve a range of desired visual effects. It offers textural and tactile appeal and translucency in flexible packaging, and a variety of dramatic looks are achievable— from antique plate glass to moisture droplets.

Suggested applications include adhesive labels, anti-slip tapes, double-sided tapes, heavy-duty sacks and extruded parts. AntiSkid is FDA-approved, and can be extruded into the film structure for applications such as stand-up pouches that can be reverse-printed for enhanced visual and tactile appeal for added shelf impact. It also eliminates the need to overprint a non-slip treatment.
