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
