Basell Polyolefins: Freezer-Friendly Pp
Basell has developed 2 PP-based resin grades that withstand freezer temperatures to -40ºF. Pro-fax EP390S high-impact, opaque PP copolymer resin and Clyrell EC140R transparent polyolefin resin (shown) are suitable for injection-molded tubs, trays, and cups ranging from 4 oz to 1.75 qt.
Both grades withstand microwave temperatures, are dishwasher safe, offer good snap-fit for lids, and may be in-mold labeled. Pro-fax EP390S offers exceptional drop test characteristics. Clyrell EC140R exhibits good transparency, good impact strength, high gloss, and good resistance to stress whitening.Learn about packaging innovation at The Packaging Conference in Orlando, February 3-5, 2014
