AFFINITY™ PL 1888G Polyolefin Plastomer

This product is primarily used for high speed packaging applications requiring low seal initiation temperature and good machinability (low consistent coefficient of friction and low block force). This resin is designed to give a COF of < 0.2 for an ~1.0 mil sealant layer in a coextruded film and run fast and trouble-free on most extrusion equipment, including blown film dies equipped with narrow die gaps. - For use in monolayer films and as the sealant layer in multilayer films - For fresh-cut produce, meat, cheese, and other high speed packaging applications requiring good machinability - Fast processing on narrow die gaps
