The food packaging product range offers ultra-low extractables and organoleptic properties to give universal grade status for food packaging from refrigerator to microwave usage.

Converters can achieve high productivity as a result of 150 MPa more rigidity, and reduced cycle times as a result of higher fluidity. Downgauging of between 4-8% has been proven, according to the company. With Polypropylene Lumicene Random, molding precision is high and reproducibility between shots is improved. All these characteristics contribute to reducing the environmental impact of the packaging.
