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)
