Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomers for high-performance, heat-shrinkable display packaging film


Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomers blended with a standard terpolymer polypropylene (terPP) or a random copolymer polypropylene (RCP) are an ideal skin layer component for high-performance, heat-shrinkable display packaging films that are manufactured using the double bubble process. The result is tougher, clearer films with improved shrink performance and better seal integrity.

For end users and processors, the addition of Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomers to the skin layer can contribute to a range of benefits, specifically:

  • Better package integrity through improved puncture resistance, high seal strength and enhanced interlayer adhesion 
  • Superior packaging fit around the product, featuring high, balanced shrinkage and no donkey ears 
  • Enhanced optical properties such as low haze, good contact and see-through clarity 
  • Improved shrink tunnel performance featuring less hole formation, low shrinkage temperatures and less sealing time 
  • More sustainable packaging solutions including single material packaging solutions and unit cost reductions
