Reducing total cost

Whether streamlining production, speeding up output or reducing costs, Vistamaxx™ performance polymers can help you achieve your goals.

Adding Vistamaxx polymers to materials, such as polypropylene (PP) or linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), can help to:

  • Reduce material use by downgauging packaging films and reducing wall thickness in rigid packaging
  • Strengthen products to reduce breakage and waste
  • Lower processing temperature to reduce energy consumption
  • Maintain processing integrity, often done by using existing machinery

Compounding
Vistamaxx polymers can increase the filler loading capability of blends – in addition to property enhancements – and be dry blended during processing, saving on material and energy use. With its low compound density, Vistamaxx polymers also allows more design flexibility and can reduce wall thickness in rigid packaging.

Films
Vistamaxx polymers can be used to increase the strength and flexibility of films for faster packaging line speeds which, combined with a low sealing temperature, may lead to increased production rates and energy savings.

Nonwovens
Vistamaxx polymers can deliver high fabric strength for long-lasting products and simple nonwoven constructions by reducing layers while still using conventional equipment. Vistamaxx polymers also offer excellent tensile properties, which can create downgauging opportunities and give materials a natural “soft-touch” feel.
