Dow Nucrel® 1202HC Ethylene-Methacrylic Acid Copolymer Resin for Blown and Cast Film
Categories: Polymer; Film; Thermoplastic; Ethylene Methyl Acrylate; Ethylene-Methyl Acrylate Copolymer, Film Grade

Material Notes: 11.5 wt% Methacrylic Acid.

Nucrel® 1202HC (High-Clarity) is an ethylene-methacrylic acid copolymer resin available for use in conventional blown and cast film extrusion and coextrusion equipment designed to process polyethylene resins.

Features/Benefits vs. Nucrel® 0903HC: Better adhesion to coextruded nylon for improved structure reliability and barrier integrity. Higher film strength for improved structure reliability and product protection. Lower seal initiation temperature for higher speed packaging. Better hot tack, sealability through contamination, and heat seal strength for stronger, more reliable heat seals. Better film optics for better package appearance and better product visibility.

Typical Applications: Meat, poultry, seafood, and cheese packaging; Cereal liners; Medical/pharmaceutical packaging; Powdered/granular food and non-food pouches; Carded display/skin packaging films; Edible oil, motor oil, and other liquid product pouches; Snack structures; Coextrusions with nylon or in other film structures as a heat seal or tie layer.

Information provided by DuPont Packaging Polymers.

This former DuPont product line is now a Dow product line.
