Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Polyvinylidene Chloride (PVDC), Ethylene / Vinyl Alcohol Copolymer (EVOH), Polyethylene Naphthalate (PEN) are three well-known high barrier materials in the market. Featured with strong gas barrier property, organic solvent resistance, environmental protection and safety, these materials are widely used in food, drug packaging and other fields.
By 2012, the global PVDC resin capacity had been 214Kt, mainly contributed by Dow Chemical, Kureha, Asahi Kasei and other companies. Meanwhile, major Chinese PVDC resin producers included Juhua (capacity: 28 Kt/a) and Nantong Hui Yu Feng New Materials (a joint venture of Shuanghui, Kureha and Toyota Tsusho) (capacity: 10 Kt/a). In 2013, Juhua will expand the PVDC resin capacity to 34Kt/a, while in 2014，Nantong Hui Yu Feng New Materials will raise the PVDC resin capacity to 20Kt/a.

In China, PVDC resin is usually applied to the production of PVDC casing film. As of 2012, China’s PVDC casing film capacity hit 80Kt/a, of which 35Kt/a (44%) came from Shuanghui and 12Kt/a (15%) was generated by Shandong Jinluo. Furthermore, China is developing PVDC plastic wrap and PVDC shrink film. In August 2012, Juhua developed PVDC plastic wrap resin independently.
In 2012, the global EVOH resin capacity reached 132Kt, mostly released by Kuraray, Nippon Gohsei and Taiwan ChangChun PetroChemical. China relies on the import of EVOH resin. In the future, in the wake of China’s EVOH resin industrialization, the upgrading of food packaging and the fast-growing automotive industry, the demand for EVOH resin will ascend stably.
By 2012, Teijin, Toyobo and Mitsubishi Chemical had the ability of producing PEN. China is conducting the R & D of PEN products, and no one company can enforce mass production.
