Nova Chemicals Corp. has introduced a packaging film resin with a moisture barrier up to 50 percent better than competing high density polyethylenes.
Surpass HPs167-AB is designed for barrier film structures. It allows designers to downgauge films without sacrificing performance and while also improving sustainability. Alternatively, film gauge can be maintained with much high barrier and stiffness performance.
The Pittsburgh-based firm said the resin is well-suited for multilayer packaging for items such as cereal and snack liners, meats and cheeses, ready-to-eat meals, pet foods and horticultural applications.
