Corbion has been awarded halal and kosher certification for variants of its Pationic polymer additives product line.
Part of an extensive range, the portfolio is used as antistats, lubricants, acid/catalyst neutralizers, dispersants, mold release agents, processing aids and antifogging agents.
Itimproves the processability of polymers and final product performance in the polypropylene, polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride and engineering thermoplastics industries.
“Halal is one of the fastest growing consumer segments in the world – expanding beyond food to include pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and packaging,” says sales manager Mick Potenza.
“Meanwhile, for some export countries such as Indonesia and the Middle East, halal certification is a must.”
“Now, with halal certification of individual products within our Pationic range, we can provide our customers with a solution to develop complete halal products, right down to the raw materials used to create the packaging.”
The certifications were granted by the Islamic Food & Nutrition Council of America and the Orthodox Union (OU/Circle U).
