Polypropylene (PP) has a wide range of performance characteristics from high stiffness to good impact and heat resistance. These products also have lower density, thus providing a yield advantage compared to most other polymers.
Purell Resins offer excellent aesthetic characteristics (clarity and gloss), outstanding organoleptic properties (low taste and odor), inertia to most chemicals and a full range of stiffness and mechanical resistance (even at low temperatures) for healthcare applications.
Softell Polypropylene (PP) is a soft touch PP resin based on the Catalloy* process technology. Softell* deliver plasticizer free solutions, excellent haptics (“soft touch”), good temperature resistance, good compatibility with other polyolefins and outstanding toughness and scratch resistance.
Toppyl is a Polybutene-1 based seal peel solution which could be used in most of the film technology. The broad range of Toppyl grades offer a peelable seal to PE substrates or to seal and peel against itself, to PP substrates or to seal and peel against itself, and for no polyolefin substrates likes PS and PET. They could be used in a dry blend or to completely replace the sealing layer in a coextruded film. They are designed to provide a constant, easy-opening force over a wide sealing temperature window and is readily processable on conventional equipment in both mono and co-extruded structures.
Ultrathene Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) copolymers combine many of the advantages of low-density /polyethylene (LDPE), such as clarity and toughness, with outstanding flexibility, low-temperature performance and lower heat seal initiation temperatures.
