Resin Enhances Shrink Applications

A film extrusion grade of cyclic olefin copolymer (COC), designated 9903D-10, extends the commercial glass transition temperature range down to 33 deg C. Resin is said to deliver a unique combination of low-temperature shrinkage, sealing, and high stiffness. Material is used to enhance polyolefin formulations for a range of monolayer and multilayer packaging film applications, including shrink film, shrink sleeves, and shrink labels for bottles and other consumer packaging, and in improved sealant films for standup pouches.
