HDPE shopper and garbage bag films


If you are looking to lower the cost and thickness of your high density polyethylene (HDPE) shopping and garbage bag films without compromising strength, consider Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomer (PBE).

In HDPE resin formulations, the addition of Vistamaxx PBE can improve dart impact resistance for downgauging opportunities. The use of Vistamaxx PBE-based filler masterbatch can allow:

  • Filler dosages to increase, helping to reduce cost
  • The creation of thinner but stronger films
  • Excellent load bearing capacity for thinner films (5% Vistamaxx PBE, may allow 20 to 25% downgauging)
  • Higher filler loading in HDPE resin formulations while maintaining film toughness and lowering costs
  • Optimization of HDPE resin/filler/recycle ratio for enhanced modulus-toughness balance
