Thermoformed single-use packaging

Thermoformed single-use packaging often requires good impact resistance to avoid breakage and waste. It also needs good clarity for consumer appeal. However, in manufacturing, compounders often want to downgauge material and reduce costs while maintaining package integrity.

Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomer (PBE) is one solution that can address these goals. By adding Vistamaxx PBE to your formulation, you can improve impact resistance and decrease breakage by up to 10% while still improving clarity.

Vistamaxx PBE can also reduce scrap rates and allow thinner wall thickness by up to 5%. This can yield cost savings of up to 10%. However, despite thinner wall constructions, Vistamaxx PBE can still achieve deep draw forms without stretch or flow marks.
