Dow Affinity™ PL 1888G Polyolefin
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyolefin

Material Notes: Product Description: Affinity PL 1888G R Polyolefin Plastomer for Packaging films is used for high speed packaging applications requiring low seal initiation temperature and good machinablity (low consistent coefficient of friction and low block force). This resin is designed to five 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
Complies with: US FDA FCN 424; EU No 10/2011. Consult the regulations for complete details.

Availability: Latin America; North America

Additive: Antiblock: 3000 ppm; Processing Aid: Yes; Slip: 1500 ppm

Form: Pellets

Processing Method: Blown Film; Cast Film
