The resin expands use of low-density PP as a cost-effective and environmentally responsible replacement for other clear plastic materials, and is a clean resin that features ultra-low extractables, improved taste and odor characteristics, and complies with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations regarding food contact.
Reduced smoke and plate-out in thermoforming applications is an additional feature.
