WEB EXCLUSIVE: Up to 50% higher moisture barrier than standard resins is claimed for an experimental HDPE from Nova Chemicals, Pittsburgh. Surpass EX-HPs667-AB is a 6-MI, 0.967-g/cc resin for cast film and extrusion coating. It can enhance barrier performance and/or permit downgauging of packaging for snack foods, beverages, dairy products, pet foods, and lawn/garden products. This bimodal homopolymer is made with Nova’s Advanced Sclairtech dual-reactor process and single-site catalyst. Nova calls this “sHDPE.” The new grade supplements Surpass HPs167-AB, which offers similar barrier improvement in a 1.2-MI, 0.966-density resin for blown film.
