Said to offer a host of benefits including: a broader processing window to yield more flexibility and more uniform thickness distribution in case film; more melt strength and better parison stability leading to optimized LDPE/LLDPE ratio in multilayer films without sacrificing the mechanical properties; and more shear thinning than with standard PA6, thus enabling higher coating velocities while remaining gel-free. Well-established for food packaging applications, the grade also features good thermoformability, printability, transparency, and heat resistance. Provides oxygen barrier, aroma and flavor barrier, mechanical protection, and puncture resistance.
