Sabic launches two new high-clarity polypropylenes


Sabic has extended its PP Qrystal line with the development of two new high-clarity polypropylenes. These random copolymers, suited for injection molding, were specially designed with unique flow behavior, providing processors with the flexibility to produce parts faster and with lower energy consumption, according to the company.

The new PP Qrystal grades include:
Sabic PP QR674K, with a melt flow rate (MFR) of 40 g/10min, was developed for sensitive food-contact applications, owing to its organoleptic performance. Typical target applications are caps and closures, houseware, kitchenware, and food/non-food containers.

Sabic PP QR678K, with its high MFR of 80 g/10 min, is suited for production of parts with complex shapes and/or long and narrow flow paths.

Sabic has a broad package of PP random copolymers for a wide range of applications. The Sabic PP Qrystal range, which was launched in 2010, now comprises four grades, with MFRs ranging from 25-80 g/10 min....
