Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomers improve bond strength of extrusion-coated and laminated PP woven sacks

Vistamaxx Films Exco Lam

By providing higher bond strength and sealing at lower temperatures, Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomers improve the performance of extrusion-coated and extrusion-laminated PP woven sacks (raffia).

Characterized by excellent compatibility with polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), Vistamaxx can be blended to allow coating properties to be tailored to meet the functional requirements of end-use applications, including sacks for cement, chemicals, pet foods, sugars, rice and flour, and block bottom bags.

Benefits of using Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomers in PP woven sack applications include:

  • Excellent inherent adhesion to different substrates
  • Outstanding compatibility with PE and PP
  • Easy processing
  • Downgauging and cost-reduction opportunities

 In extrusion-coating applications:

  • Low seal-initiation temperature (SIT)
  • Controlled surface coefficient of friction (COF)

 In lamination applications:

  • Excellent co-extrusion with functionalized tie layer
