A new online modeling tool from DuPont Packaging is said to enable brand owners and packaging converters to evaluate the total cost of flexible packaging that relies on sealing solutions to help protect the contents.
Available online at sealant-value-estimator.dupont.com, DuPont’s Save (Sealant Value Estimator) calculates the total value in use of sealant alternatives, taking into consideration gains from productivity and losses due to inefficiencies, and waste from packaging failures that result from ineffective sealants. It also incorporates dynamic modeling capabilities that allow users to calculate break-even points on multiple inputs in order to make wiser, more sustainable choices.
The Save calculator can help determine whether increased material costs can be offset by higher productivity, and where the break-even point is.
“DuPont technical experts have long been able to use their models to have these discussions one-on-one with customers,” says Dr Barry Morris, senior scientist and developer of the modeling tools. The models enable customers to calculate the combination of physical properties that will deliver required performance, processibility and other requirements.”
