EP2 X 49 GA

EP2 X 49 GA

EP2 X 49 GA is a polypropylene random copolymer which features extremely high flow properties, excellent transparency, high gloss and exhibits good antistatic properties. EP2 X 49 GA is mainly designed for transparent housewares and quality packaging applications.
EP2 X 49 GA is an outstanding grade for injection moulded containers and thin-walled packaging where clarity is of utmost importance.
Typical injection moulding applications include food storage containers, household articles, packaging for food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products, lids, caps and closures.
In many of these applications, EP2 X 49 GA can replace PS since it can match the optical properties whilst adding low weight, low odour transfer, chemical resistance and impact strength.
Another major application of EP2 X 49 GA is the coextrusion with other polypropylene resins to produce multilayer sheet for thermoforming trays for fresh pasta and bakery products.
