EP2 Z 29 G

EP2 Z 29 G

EP2 Z 29 G is a polypropylene random copolymer with a high melt flow and outstanding transparency and gloss and is designed for injection moulding applications.
EP 2 Z 29 G is the material of choice for applications where transparency is a primary requirement, such as household containers, videocassette boxes, lids, caps and packaging for food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products.
EP 2 Z 29 G is well suited for injection moulding clear tubs and pots for ice cream, yoghurt and other desserts.
Other typical applications of EP 2 Z 29 G include injection moulded items for the medical sector such as syringes, test tubes and vials.
EP 2 Z 29 G is also suitable for injection stretch blow moulded containers and bottles. This product combines good see through clarity and excellent moisture barrier properties with hot fillability.
Therefore, EP 2 Z 29 G offers an effective alternative for PET and PVC for the packaging of non-oxygen sensitive products such as confectionary, herbs, toiletries and cosmetics.
