EP2 S 29 B

EP2 S 29 B

EP2 S 29 B is a clear polypropylene random copolymer particularly suited for blow moulding technology and single or multi-layer sheet extrusion.
The product imparts excellent clarity and gloss and these characteristics may be further enhanced through orientation processes (i.e. injection stretch blow moulding). Due to these properties EP 2 S 29 B is an interesting alternative to P.V.C. for use in blow moulding, sheet extrusion and thermoforming applications.
Blow moulding applications for EP 2 S 29 B include bottles for detergents and toiletries, flat mineral water, fresh fruit juice and concentrates, jars for condiments and preserves. Extruded sheets made of EP 2 S 29 B are widely used in stationery folders and thermoforming articles such as trays for fresh pasta, sweets or biscuits, fruit and vegetable containers and pots for dairy products.
