According to GlobalData’s company profile on Nippon Paper Industries, Sustainable packaging paper coating was a key innovation area identified from patents. Nippon Paper Industries's grant share as of March 2024 was 41%. Grant share is based on the ratio of number of grants to total number of patents.

A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11958926B2) discloses a modified polyolefin resin with specific characteristics. The modified polyolefin resin includes a modifying component comprising an a,ß-unsaturated carboxylic acid derivative with a cyclic structure and a (meth)acrylate ester. The resin has a ring-opening degree of 40 or more, a melting point of 50°C or higher, and a weight-average molecular weight of 10,000 or more. Additionally, the ethylene structural unit content in the polyolefin resin ranges from 1 to 50 mol. %.

Furthermore, the modified polyolefin resin may contain specific a,ß-unsaturated carboxylic acids such as maleic anhydride, citraconic anhydride, itaconic anhydride, or aconitic anhydride, as well as various (meth)acrylate esters like methyl (meth)acrylate, ethyl (meth)acrylate, and others. The resin does not include chlorinated polyolefin resin and has a melting point ranging from 60 to 120°C. The ethylene structural unit content in the polyolefin resin falls within the range of 5 to 40 mol. %, and the weight-average molecular weight of the modified polyolefin resin is between 20,000 to 200,000. These specific characteristics and components define the unique properties of the modified polyolefin resin as outlined in the patent claims.
