EP3 X 37 F

EP3 X 37 F

EP3 X 37 F is a low sealing temperature polypropylene resin. The product is designed for coextruded bioriented polypropylene film and is formulated with a silp and antiblocking package.
EP3 X 37 F exhibits very high transparency, excellent gloss and outstanding heat weldability. Coextruded BOPP films combine high resistance to, moisture, fats and oils with good impact and optical properties and are used to produce quality packaging for food, stationery, cosmetics, clothes and cigarettes.
EP3 X 37 F is also suitable for the production of shrinkable coextruded BOPP film for display packaging of cheese, bakery and meat products.
