Total Xsene® BM 593 HDPE, blow molding
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyethylene (PE); High Density (HDPE); High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Blow Molding Grade

Material Notes: FINATHENE® BM 593 is a new generation of bimodal high density polyethylene based on hexene (C6) as co-monomer and is produced by the ATOFINA Double Loop Technology™.

FINATHENE® BM 593 has been especially designed for the manufacture of blow molded bottles for aggressive liquids (up to 5 liters). Typical applications are bottles for the packaging of liquid detergents and personal care products.

FINATHENE® BM 593 has a broad (bimodal) molecular weight distribution that ensures easy processing, high machine output and bottles with a good surface finish. Due to the combination of hexene (C6) co-monomer and a bimodal molecular weight distribution, FINATHENE® BM 593 offers an excellent balance between stiffness and environmental stress crack resistance. This ensures a high security of stacking during transit and storage of bottles.

FINATHENE® BM 593 is best processed at temperatures between 180 and 220°C.
