Exxelor PA 609N HIGH PERFORMANCE POLYMER FOR POLYPROPYLENE MODIFICATION


Exxelor PA 609N has been developed to improve the stiffness and dead fold characteristics of regular polypropylene and make the film behave like cellophane. In addition, it can be used to improve the barrier properties, sealability and optical characteristics of a regular homopolymer polypropylene, adding further attributes to this polyolefin for the packaging industry.

Typical applications
Snack food packaging. Cigarette packaging. Twist wrap for sweets.

Product attributes
Humidity barrier PA 609N modified films are competitive with PVdC coated polypropylene films. Dead fold PA 609N improves the twist retention of BOPP films, providing a high quality alternative to cellophane, cast polypropylene, unplasticized PVC or HDPE. Stiffness Film stiffness can be increased by up to 50% allowing downgauging or better film processability.

What is Exxelor PA 609N ?


It is a performance modifier designed for use in blends with regular homopolymer polypropylene. It is specially developed and designed to blend easily with polypropylene. It can be dry blended with polypropylene, with the resulting blend then being fed into the extruder. It can also be introduced directly into the extruder via a separate weight feeder. The blend processes exceptionally well on both oriented and non oriented extrusion lines, with the processing window for extrusion and orientation significantly enlarged.
