EP3 C 39 F

EP3 C 39 F

EP3 C 39 F is a low sealing temperature polypropylene resin. The product is designed for coextruded bioriented polypropylene film and is formulated with an antiblocking package.
EP3 C 39 F exhibits very high transparency, excellent gloss and outstanding heat weldability. The seal initiation temperature is low (110 to 115°C) and the films show good hot tack.
EP3 C 39 F is particularly suited for metallized BOPP films. Metallised BOPP film is used to produce packaging which combines protection against light, moisture, flavour loss, oxidations and temperature variations with good optical properties.
Typical applications of metallised BOPP include packaging for coffee, tea.
Meat products, potato crisps, snacks, cookies, cakes and confectionary, packaging for medical applications, beer labels and liquor cartons.
