Developed primarily for paper and paperboard extrusion-coating applications. Its low seal initiation temperature (90?C) broad sealing window and strong seal strength allows it to outperform conventional resins. Also provides tear-strength and puncture-resistance properties that are said to be better than those of LDPE. Can also be used as a lamination film between layers of OPP film.
