Vistamaxx targets film applications

propylene-based elastomers provide for flexible film. Target applications include cast polypropylene (cPP), stretch hood, PP raffia tape, extrusion-coated and laminated woven and nonwoven polyolefinic substrates, as well as surface protection, cast stretch, and elastic hygiene films. The company says high-transparency films also benefit from the good optical properties and chemical resistance of Vistamaxx. The new Vistamaxx film portfolio includes four new grades: Vistamaxx 6202FL, 6102FL, 3980FL, and 3020FL.

The Vistamaxx FL series exhibits a low gel count, while reportedly providing processing and performance improvements and new options for next-generation film designs. These options include excellent sealing operation and package integrity; improved film tear resistance at high stretch ratios; and, improvements in scratch and indent-free surface protection. They can also result in outstanding printing and optical quality properties. The grades comply with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Union (EU)-Directive for food-contact use. —[email protected]
