ELITE™ Enhanced Polyethylene Resins
Distinctive property combinations
Looking for just the right resin to optimize your packaging?
Custom designs. Being unique. Who doesn’t like being able to tailor solutions to get exactly what they want? ELITE™ Enhanced Polyethylene (EPE) Resins bring that excitement to packaging.
Diverse and desired properties
For nearly 20 years, ELITE™ Enhanced Polyethylene (EPE) Resins have brought distinctive combinations of properties to formulations for flexible plastic packaging. Functionalities typically not found together in a single resin are possible with ELITE™ EPE Resins. The science behind ELITE™ resins enables performance properties like these:
- High processability & excellent dart impact strength
- High stretch & high puncture resistance
- Improved sealability & higher stiffness
- Moisture barrier protection
Extending the family of ELITE™ resins, ELITE™ AT (Advanced Technology) Polyethylene Resins also offer excellent flexibility to tailor molecular weight distribution, short-chain branching, and long-chain branching specific to an application’s requirements.
ELITE™ AT resins maintain the excellent processing characteristics of ELITE™ EPE resins, while adding benefits such as shrink and stiffness, sealability, processability, and organoleptics. Functionality includes high-performance sealing to enhance processing performance in both Vertical Form Fill Seal (VFFS) and Horizontal Form Fill Seal (HFFS) applications.
The newest innovation
ELITE™ AT 6900 polyethylene resin brings even more options to brand owners and converters designing for high moisture barrier protection, enhanced stiffness, and excellent processability to enable recyclable PE-based structures.
ELITE™ AT 6900 can be used alone for moisture barrier or used in conjunction with EVOH and Dow’s RETAIN™ Polymer Modifiers to provide oxygen barrier functionality in a recyclable package.
