Finacene was developed using metallocene-based, single-site catalyst technology. Finacene is an alternative to K-resin, PC, and acrylics. According to the company, Finacene has 20% to 30% less haze and is also 20% to 30% stiffer than other copolymers. It also has low-xylene solubles, which is especially important for medical products, food packaging, and cook-in-film markets.
