Corbion additives gain halal and kosher certification.

Netherlands-based Corbion said it has been awarded halal and kosher certification for variants of its Pationic[R] polymer additives product line. Part of an extensive range, these materials are used as antistats, lubricants, acid/catalyst neutralizers, dispersants, mold release agents, processing aids and antifogging agents. They are designed to improve the processability of polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC and engineering thermoplastics.

"Halal is one of the fastest-growing consumer segments in the world - expanding beyond food to include pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and packaging," noted Corbion 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 halal certification, granted by the Islamic Food & Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA), is recognized globally, meaning Corbion's customers can meet consumer demand for halal products and packaging all over the world.

This Pationic portfolio of products is based on glycerol ester, lactate and stearoyl lactylate chemistries.
