FIELD: packing industry.

SUBSTANCE: casing is produced by the coextrusion of at least two layers including the outer layer (Z). At least one layer which is not an outer one (Z) contains more than 50 wt % of thermoplastic components on the (co)polyamide(s) basis. The outer layer (Z) contains more than 50 wt % of thermoplastic components and inorganic particles distributed in them with at least part of the particles having the diametre of the equivalent sphere exceeding 20 mcm. At least one of the layers (not the outer one (Z)) performs the carrying function.

The invention relates to a thermoplastic multilayer casing for food products, in which the layer located on the outer surface comprises at least one inorganic solid substance in the outer layer, which are distributed in at least one of thermoplastic synthetic material. This surface layer has a high degree of roughness and low gloss. The film thus remains opaque, similar to collagen membrane in appearance and to the touch, and keeps very good roughness. Non-edible collagen casings will be called collagen sausage casings.

Wrappers for food products, especially sausage casings, traditionally made from natural gut, collagen fibers, protein fibers, reinforced with cellulose fibres or textiles. These wrappers are still on the world market a larger share, in particular, for high-grade sausage. In second place is the shell of thermoplastic synthetic material, in particular a shell made from polyamide or combined systems polyamide-polyolefin. Most thermoplastic membranes, in turn, upon receipt oriented by stretching, which leads to the ability to heat shrinkage and better mechanical properties. However, thermoplastic look about the shell still very unnatural. In addition, thermoplastic shell is usually so smooth that they are very little resemblance to the naturally structured surface collagen casings and, in addition, when the content they often slip from the hands.

Collagen and protein sausage casings get very expensive and polluting the environment by way of the skins of bovine animals: skin tissue is separated until the fibrils acids, such as lactic acid; high-viscosity mass ekstragiruyut, slowly and densely beset with gaseous ammonia or ammonium hydroxide and utverjdayut. In this case, when drying occurs crosslinking (curing)to give the products a sufficient stability, so that the cooking process has not been a significant loss of strength. However, because of the antibiotics of natural casings as protein sausage casing, is less and less accepted by the end users. In addition, there are legal restrictions. Therefore, a desirable alternative to the above shells. Cellulose casings, even shell, reinforced fibers, solve this problem only to a limited extent. The retrieval method is not less costly and less harmful to the environment than the method of obtaining collagen and collagen sausage casings.

The big advantage of thermoplastic who wrappers for food products is simple, inexpensive getting. However, the end user often has a bias against the sausages in these shells. Natural synthetic material is very shiny surface often gives the impression of lower quality products. Still the visual impression could be improved, if only to make them matte by using coating, but not so much that managed natural imitation of collagen, a protein or, fiber-reinforced cellulose casings. I should add to this the poor quality of the sausages to the touch, when the surface of the synthetic material soaked with moisture or grease.

The shells of natural gut and, in particular, reinforced by cellulose fibers or collagen fibrous consistency contributes roughly structured rough surface. The consumer, who is such a kind familiar to many decades, associated with high quality or traditional sausages.

From the document DE 4141292 A1 known single-layer, transparent, duono-oriented tubular casings for food products based on polyamide, which contain point pigments with a particle size of from 0.01 to 15 μm. Point the pigments should primarily contribute to a reduced tendency to block.

In document WO 02/00026 A1 disclosed a multilayer, duono-oriented R is Kanye shell of synthetic material, which consist of at least one polyamide and, if necessary, of the layer containing the polyolefin containing buried him nanoparticles in the proportion of from 0.1 to 4 wt.%. Under nanoparticles are meant, in particular, layered silicates, the length of which in any dimension less than 100 nm.

Described films have high transparency and act as an improved barrier to oxygen.

In document WO 01/03508 A1 presents a wrapper for food products, where on the outside cellulose casings for food products coated using aqueous suspensions based on cationic resin and silicon dioxide. The particle size of the inorganic substance is, as a rule, from 0.1 to 25 μm, and the proportion may vary from 20 to 83,3 wt.%.

Highly permeable composite film described in the publications US 2003/0077471 A1 and WO 03/020513 A1. These films consist of at least two layers: the inner layer, which consists, generally, of the polyolefin and the inorganic filler, and from the outer layer, which contains a mixture of at least two incompatible polymers, preferably atactic polypropylene and low density polyethylene or polystyrene and adhesion promoter. By focusing this layered combination creates microcracks, which are responsible for the high permeability of the lenok. Apply these materials especially in the field of hygiene, for example baby diapers.

In the cited publications natural appearance and the corresponding surface structure, i.e. the regulation of special appearance and surface collagen casings, are not the subject of the greatest interest. Entered inorganic substances are there primarily for the best tropicalista in the filling process, in particular, manually, to create a reduced tendency to block wound products, to achieve improved barrier to oxygen or particularly high permeability. Fine particles also do not contribute sufficient roughness and tropicality.

In addition, sometimes the quality of the materials used in the membranes according to the invention, applied to other polymer matrix, or a combination of different polymers.

Therefore, the task is to obtain a multilayer casings for food products, which can be made so that it could be largely or completely, the appearance and roughness of natural, collagen, protein or reinforced fibers cellulose casings.

The problem is solved by a multilayer coextruding thermoplastic casings for food products, which manufactured the and of the at least two layers, including the outer layer (Z), and at least one layer which is an outer layer (Z), contains more than 50 wt.% thermoplastic components based on (co)polyamide(s) and outer layer (Z) contains more than 50 wt.% thermoplastic components and dispersed therein inorganic particles, at least part of which has a diameter equivalent to a sphere than 20 microns.

The compositions of the individual layers are selected in accordance with their function. In one preferred embodiment, outer layer (Z) is at least one layer with the function of the mechanical substrate.

The shell according to the invention for food can have, in particular, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 layers in series. Therefore, this shell may in some cases the implementation to have one outer layer (Z), as well as one, two, three or four other layer. In preferred embodiments, the implementation of the sheath according to the invention has in addition to the external layer (Z), in particular one, two, three or four other layers, which are the functional layers, such as layers of type (A), (B) or/and (C). Individual layers may (but not obliged) to be clearly separated from each other. Two adjacent layer can have a smooth transition or/and to have a surface boundary between two layers with irregularly varying roughness.

Shell food who's products preferably is tubular, it is expedient with a circular cross-section, and flexible. It can be used in particular as sausage casings, but also as a wrapper for dairy products and other food products. Wrapper for food products can be used, for example, in the form of segments, corrugated shells, natural intestinal membranes, for example, oiled or/and in the form of a circle.

Compared with the prior art casings according to the invention differ primarily in appearance, similar to collagen membrane, the protein shell, reinforced fibers cellulose membrane or/and natural shell, which is achieved thanks to a multilayer structure, in particular of synthetic thermoplastic polymers, and is also located on the outer surface of the layer (Z) of a mixture of at least one inorganic particulate material and at least one thermoplastic synthetic material.

Under thermoplastic materials in the framework of this proposal are understood, in particular, such materials, which consist mainly of typical thermoplastic polymers. Many of these polymers have higher application temperature and below the melting interval smoother transition region or/and (in particular, in the case of at least partially crystalline polymers) melting point.

Externally the th layer (Z) preferably also contains inorganic particles with a diameter equivalent to a sphere more than 25 μm or more to 30 μm, particularly preferably 35 μm or more to 40 μm, totally more preferably 45 μm or more to 50 μm, in particular more than 55 μm, 60 μm or more, especially more than 65 μm or more and 70 μm. However, in some embodiments, the implementation can occur inorganic particles with a diameter equivalent to a sphere more than 75 μm, 80 μm, 85 μm, 90 μm, 95 μm or more than 100 μm.

As the inorganic powdered substances, which, in particular, can be added, preferably in the outer layer (Z), among other suitable the following.

1. Fibers of glass, such as glass fibres, glass filaments and/or staple fibre glass.

2. Short fibers of mineral wool, for example, basalt wool, slag wool or mineral wool fibers.

3. Fillers or reinforcing materials of carbonate(s), such as chalk, limestone powder, calcite, precipitated calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, barium carbonate, dolomite or/and other mixed carbonates.

4. Sulfates, such as barium sulfate or calcium sulfate.

5. Silicates, such as talc, pyrophyllite, chlorite, horn blende, mica, kaolin, clay, wollastonite, mineral flour, such as slate flour, precipitated or natural silicates containing alkali and/or alkaline earth metals, silicates with som is Kimi cations, as, for example, silicates MgFe, AlMg, CaAl, NaAl or KAl, feldspars, Deputy feldspar, mullite, zeolites or/and metasilicate Ca.

Silicic acid of various types, for example, quartz, fused quartz, cristobalite, ground or crushed material substances with a very high content of SiO2as kieselguhr or/and Nabulsi silica, precipitated or pyrogenic silica, glass powder, pumice powder, perlite, finely ground Frit or glass (micro)spheres or grains of silicate as solid balls, hollow balls and/or fragments thereof.

7. Oxides, such as aluminum hydroxide, aluminum oxide, magnesium hydroxide, magnesium oxide, titanium oxide, silicon dioxide.

8. More like carbon fiber, particles of carbon black and/or graphite.

In particular, the inorganic particles are composed mainly or entirely of particles on the basis of aluminum oxide, carbonate, phosphate, silica, silicate, sulfate, minerals and/or vitreous material.

The surface of the inorganic particles can be modified, for example, an adhesion promoter, which can be achieved high compatibility with the surrounding synthetic matrix, or to be painted. In the polymer matrix of the inorganic particles in the known cases, there may be a cavity, in particular, when extruding.

Large neorg the organic particles in the outer layer (Z) is especially useful for roughness and tropicalista shell. The fraction of inorganic particles of the medium and/or small size can be, in particular, to strengthen the matte appearance and create a microstructure. This can be a mixture of particles of different shapes. The share of large primary particles biaxial stretching, for example, plates, preferably small or (almost) equal to zero.

In some embodiments, the implementation of at least part of the inorganic particles is preferably in a substantially isometric, linear, needle-like or fibrous form. In this case, depending on the circumstances, it is preferable that most of the particles, in particular large, had preferred this form. It is preferable to use the mixture of inorganic particles, which has essentially isometric particles, or substantially linear, acicular or fibrous particles, in particular, in the range of ratios of from 5:95 to 95:5, preferably in the range of from 15:85 to 95:5, particularly preferably greater than 25:75 or greater than 35:65, or less than 75:25, or less than 65:35, preferably completely, about 45:55, or about 55:45. The latter can be partially or fully, slightly or strongly ordered. But they can also be contained preferably in an external layer (Z) irregularly that it was impossible to distinguish the predominant n the Board.

Inorganic particles in the outer layer (Z), first of all particles in the form of fibers or/and large, essentially isometric particles give the shell a very natural matte look and good roughness to the touch. This ensures that the surface receives a small surface roughness, which can regulate the type, number of particles and the distribution of particle size. In addition, the share of these particles can affect the ability of the shell to collapse into the ring. In addition, inorganic particles act as active filler, making the stability of the caliber of the filled material (change in diameter) compared to the unfilled material is significantly increased.

The mass ratio between the inorganic particles and synthetic materials across the membrane for food products is preferably from 0.01:99,99 to 40:60, particularly preferably at least 0.05 to:99,95, respectively, up to 30:70, most preferably at least 0,1:99,9, respectively, up to 20:80, in particular at least 0,3:99,7 or at least 0,5:99,5, respectively, up to 16:84, until 12:88, or up to 8:92, primarily at least 0,8:99,2 or at least 1:99, respectively, up to 6:94, or even up to 4:96.

From polyamides are particularly suitable PA6, PA, PA, PA6/66, PA6/12. Of polyesters are particularly preferred polylactide, polycaprolactone, copolymers alifaticheskih diols with aliphatic dicarboxylic acids and terephthalic acid, as well as polybutyleneterephthalate.

To achieve the tactile experience of natural, collagen, protein or reinforced fibers cellulose casing preferably installs the following, used is i.i.d. in each case at least 5 measurements, the degree of surface roughness of the outer layer:

Ra≥0.8 μm, particularly preferably Ra≥1,0 μm, preferably completely Ra≥1.2 microns, in particular Ra≥1.4 µm, primarily Ra≥1.6 ám and

Rmax≥to 6.0 μm, particularly preferably Rmax≥7.5 μm, preferably completely Rmax≥9 μm, in particular Rmax≥to 10.5 μm, especially Rmax≥12 μm.

In particular, the average degree of roughness are Ra≥1,8 µm, Ra≤5.0 µm, Rz≥10 ám, Rz≤35 μm, Rmax≥13 microns or/and Rmax≤45 microns. First of all, the average degree of roughness are Raabout 2, 2,2, 2,4, 2,6, 2,8, 3,0, 3,2, 3,4, 3,6, 3,8, 4,0, 4,2, 4,4, 4,6 4.8 μm, Rzabout 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31 or 33 μm or/and Rmaxabout 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41 or 43 mm.

In particular, the average of glitter make up≥0,5, ≥1, ≥2, ≥4, ≥6 or ≥8 or≤24, ≤22, ≤20, ≤18, ≤16 or ≤14. First of all, they make up about 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 or 21.

Preferably at least one additional layer, in addition to the external layer (Z), is typical of synthetic material mechanical properties of the shell, as, for example, high tensile strength and high elasticity. This at least one layer is often the bearing layer of the shell. In certain cases at least one layer, in addition to the external layer (Z), contributes to the high gas and paronepronitsaemost. In some embodiments, the external layer (Z) can also be of high gas and vapour barrier.

These additional, along with the outer layer (Z), the layers preferably contain synthetic materials based on (co)polyamide, polyolefin, copolymer of ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), (co)polymer vinylidenechloride or/and (with)polymerizate with the properties of the adhesion promoter. Especially preferably, at least one of the layers of the shell had a share based on (co)polyamide is at least 50 wt.% what if at least 55 wt.%, or at least 60 wt.%, quite preferably at least 65 wt.%, or at least 70 wt.%, or at least 75 wt.%, quite preferably at least 80 wt.%, or at least 85 wt.%, or at least 90 wt.%, in particular at least 95 wt.%, or at least 98 wt.% or even about 100 wt.%. This layer may also be an outer layer (Z) and can optionally be enriched (co)polyamide. However, it is often preferable to another layer, and not the outer layer (Z), have the function and composition of the layer (A). Itself, one outer layer (Z) in many cases because it contains a relatively large inorganic particles is not bearing layer, as it often does not reach the relevant properties.

Enriched (co)polyamide layers (hereinafter abbreviated as A) can contain one or more aliphatic polyamides and aliphatic copolyamids, and if necessary, some partially aromatic polyamides and partially aromatic copolyamids. Their examples are:

Aliphatic polyamidesPA6, PA, PA
Aliphatic copolyamidsPA/6, PA6/66, PA6/69, PA6/9, PA6/10, PA6/12, simple polyetherimide complex is reafirmed, preferability, polyamidoamine, block simple polyetherimide
Partially aromatic polyamidesPA6-I, nylon-MXD6 (polycondensate of m-xylylenediamine and adipic acid)
Partially aromatic copolyamidsPA6-I/6-T, PA-6/6-I.

Particularly preferred components are PA6, PA, PA, PA6/66, nylon-MXD6 and PA6-I/6-t Especially preferred mixtures contain at least two such polyamide. The proportion of partially aromatic (co)polyamides is preferably not more than 40 wt.% from layer (A), particularly preferably not more than 25 wt.%.

In addition, the layer (A) may also contain other polymers such as olefinic copolymers, as EMAA (a copolymer of ethylene and methacrylic acid)ionomers based on them, EVOH or soluble (hot) water synthetic polymers, such as polyvinyl alcohol, optionally partially or completely saponified, copolymers of vinyl alcohol and propen-1-ol, polyalkylene glycols, polyvinylpyrrolidone, copolymers of vinylpyrrolidone with at least one Monomeric link with α,β-olefinic-unsaturated, polymers of N-vinylamides or (co)polymers of acrylic acid and/or acrylamide. The share of other polymers is preferably not is m ore than 35 wt.% from layer (A). In addition, if necessary, the layers (A) may optionally contain pigments and/or other typical synthetic materials additives.

In some cases, it is preferable that at least one layer acted as a barrier to water vapor. This can be achieved with at least one polyolefin layer. Polyolefin layers (hereinafter abbreviated as B) are usually essentially of polyethylene, polypropylene and/or of copolymers with units of ethylene, propylene and α-olefin, preferably with the number of C atoms from 4 to 8 or/and from dienes. As comonomeric links are also possible functionalityand vinyl monomers as vinyl acetate, (meth)acrylic acid and an ester of (meth)acrylic acid. In particular, suitable C2/C3- or/and C2/C8copolymers. Layers (B) are primarily a function of the moisture barrier, as polyolefins typically have a very low permeability. In addition, the layers (B) may also contain dyes and/or fine-grained pigments, as they typically are used for coloring or for protection from UV. Therefore, these layers can also be painted.

To achieve good barrier to oxygen and other gases, if necessary, can be added layers of synthetic materials with an appropriate barrier effect (also called C). On the walking for the synthetic materials are copolymers of ethylene and vinyl alcohol, optionally partially or fully saponified (EVOH), and copolymers of vinylidenechloride and, for example, vinyl chloride or methyl acrylate as the co monomer (PVDC). These polymers can also be blended with additives, such as plasticizer, and other polymers, as, for example, copolyamids or ionomers. Layers (B) or (C) is also usually have a thermoplastic nature.

Note that the layers corresponding to (A), (B) and (C) in the multilayer film, sometimes do not adhere well to each other. Good adhesion is achieved by additionally introduced at least one layer of adhesion promoter (HV) in the form of intermediate or inner layer, which upon receipt of the films, for example, coextrusions, stick together with the two adjacent layers. Suitable adhesion promoters are, in particular, grafted or/and linear copolymers, these copolymers may include more than two monomers, with units of ethylene and/or propylene, as well as components from the group consisting of (meth)acrylic acid ester (meth)acrylic acid, vinyl acetate and maleic anhydride. Particularly preferred, among others, polyethylene grafted maleic anhydride (LLDPE-g-MAA)copolymers of ethylene and acrylic ester, and copolymers of ethylene and vinyl acetate (EVA). These polymers in HV-layers may be contained in otdeleniia in the mixture. Additionally HV-layers may contain other polymers, such as polyethylene, and/or other additives, and pigments.

HV-layers can also be omitted, if between the functional layers there is sufficient internal cohesion, which, for example, often exists between the polyamide and some EVOH, or due to the fact that the component - adhesion promoter - vmeshivat in components, for example, the boundary layer (B).

The difference in the structure, the structure and/or composition between the individual layers can always independently from each other be from layer to layer is less than or noticeable expressed. The transitions between the individual layers, can be, independently from each other, markedly or slightly bent from the border to the boundary layer or to be smooth. The boundary layer can be essentially completely smooth or, in particular, due to the larger neighbouring particles or clusters of particles, rather rough, and in this case, if necessary, also with strong fluctuations in the thickness of the individual layers. Particularly preferably, the outer layer (Z) has at least one layer with the function of mechanical media.

The outer layer (Z) can be combined with other these types of layers to produce different multilayer structures. Always is essential that the layer (Z) was located on the outer surface of the sheath, and beneath it was on ENISA least one layer with the function of mechanical media. The preferred structures of the layers are (abbreviations see above):

Obtaining mixtures of thermoplastic synthetic matrix and inorganic particles for the layer (Z) can be conducted, for example, at the stage of compounding by a known method. This can be connected coextrude as extrusion sleeve. The above additives are added, if necessary, also during the processes of subsidence or mixing and inserted into the outer layer (Z) mostly uniformly or completely uniformly. During extrusion of the sleeve all the layers fo moutse at the same time.

Getting casings for food products according to one of the above structures is carried out by coextrusion and preferably with the subsequent blowing sleeves or biaxial stretching. Appropriate specialist known.

The mixture of inorganic particles and a synthetic matrix, and also provided other polymers or mixtures usually melted in separate extruders and plastificator, and then brought together in a heated annular mouthpiece coextruder. Facing annular cast film may or direct blow in film sleeve, or be fed to a process biaxial stretching, if necessary, followed by heat setting. In the latter process the film melt utverjdayut by rapid cooling to amorphous primary sleeve and then it doesno pull by reheating, often up to about 80°C, using an air cushion enclosed between two pairs of wringer rolls. Subsequent heat setting may be carried out so that an elongated sleeve carried out through the following heating zone, if necessary, with the stabilization of the second air bag. In this way it is possible to reduce the tendency of the shell to thermal shrinkage to a reasonable practice values, which typically comprise about 5-20% in length and width, measured at 80°C.

Examples and comparative examples
