Petroquimica Triunfo Trithene® TX 3003 LDPE - Shrink Wrap Film  (discontinued **)
Categories: Polymer; Film; Thermoplastic; Polyethylene (PE); Low Density (LDPE)

Material Notes: The Trithene® TX 3003 resin is a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) with high molecular weight, presenting excellent mechanical properties. The product provided elevated gloss and transparency, adding value to the printing and finish of the films. Its superior density in comparison to conventional LDPE allows the production of flasks with a greater stiffness and better resistance to the temperatures applied in sterilization processes in autoclaves. Because of its narrow molecular weight distribution and its branched structure, the Trithene® TX 3003 resin provides excellent processability with conventional extruders for LDPE, offers a low consumption of energy during processing, and allows the production of films and flasks with a good dimensional uniformity and excellent surface finish. This product complies with ASTM standard D1248-IIA5 and the requirements of Brazilian and corresponding legislation of Mercosul and it is in conformity with FDA Regulations 21 CFR 177.1520 (c) 2.1, to contact with foodstuff.

Applications: Shrink wrap films for the unitization of bottles of soft drinks, beer, and other beverages, vegetable oils, and hygiene and cleaning products. Bags with a high resistance for animal feed. Flexible flasks with a greater stiffness and better surface finish.

Resin Properties: Compressed molded plate. Method ASTM D-1928, procedure C. Film obtained on a 50mm blow film line with barrier screw, 25:1 L/D, 1.0mm die gap, 50µm gauge, 2.3:1 BUR.
