RAISING THE BAR IN

FOAMS FOR PROTECTIVE PACKAGING

The e-commerce retail market, accounting for roughly 7% of global retail sales, has been growing spectacularly over the past years, and it is projected to keep growing at double-digit rates annually. This will drive growth of the logistics packaging market and polyolefin foams1.

AGILITY™ Performance LDPE Resins, designed with very high melt strength, have proven to deliver a very stable foaming process and improved mechanics, optimizing material use in polyolefin foams used mainly for protective logistics packaging.

For medium to high density foams, AGILITY™ EC 7000 offers the following advantages:

  • Potential for smaller cell sizes
  • Potential for reduced foam density
  • Improved mechanical properties
  • Reduced corrugation
  • Broad processing window
  • Very smooth surface

For very low density foams (< 20kg/m3), AGILITY™ EC 7220 offers the following advantages:

  • Improved cell stabilization
  • Very good processability (equivalent to a 2.0 MI resin)
