Banana Bunker

Before Joining Alliance Polymers & Services (APS) Ron Sheu helped develop the Banana Bunker!

Have you ever had the bad experience that the tasty banana you took with you to the office had turned into unappetizing mush by the time you were ready to eat it? Paul Stremple, CEO of Cultured Containers, certainly has. Normally, he is busy creating products for Gucci or Ralph Loren, but he was so absorbed by the problem with the banana that he decided to look for a solution here as well. Together with Ron Sheu, applications developer at BASF, he created this banana protector, called the BananaBunker®. Styrolux® 3G46, an SBS made by BASF, turned out to be the right material for this since it is especially well-suited for blow-molding and short cycle times. The Banana Bunker is currently on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Now Stremple wants to turn his attention to new tasks - protective packaging for other types of snacks is to follow.
