EP2 YX 29 GA
EP2 YX 29 GA is a polypropylene random copolymer with excellent ﬂow properties.
The product features very high transparency and gloss and exhibits good antistatic properties.
Moplen EP 2 YX 29 GA is mainly designed for transparent housewares and quality packaging applications.
EP 2 YX 29 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, EP 2 YX 29 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 EP 2 YX 29 GA is the coextrusion with other polypropylene resins to produce multilayer sheet for thermoforming trays for fresh pasta and bakery products.
