Adflex 7492 XCP, a new polypropylene resin, offers users an outstanding combination of softness, film clarity and superior resistance to impact, puncture and tear propagation. With a film thickness of 30 micrometers and 13% haze value, the resin represents a new benchmark for highly modified polypropylene grades. The resin's applications range from consumer and industrial packaging to film used in agricultural and industrial environments. Trial runs show Adflex 7492 XCP has promise in co-extruded blown film applications, where the new Adflex grade was used in the core layer, and also offers the potential to reduce raw materials costs through downgauging.
