Dow releases its Affinity Polyolefin Plastomers to deliver greater sealant performance as compared to traditional polyethylene at much lower cost for e-commerce applications.
Through the use of Dow’s patented Insite Technology, the product gains sealability to diverse structures, as well as lower heat seal and hot tack initiation temperatures for faster filling speeds and lower leak rates.
The material is used in breathable films for modified atmosphere packaging.
Packages designed with selective barrier properties control the oxygen transmission rate and oxygen concentration inside the package which gives protection for fresh food during transportation.
Meanwhile, the material’s sealant performance and improved tear resistance enable downgauging and improved package integrity, which can prevent leakage or damage during long-haul courier and transportation.
