WEB EXCLUSIVE: A new PP random copolymer from Austria’s Borealis (U.S. office at Borealis Compounds in Port Murray, N.J.), offers excellent flowability for high-speed, thin-wall food packaging. It was recently adopted by Swedish custom injection molder Bra Plast AB. Featuring high flow (MFR of 70), BorPure RJ766MO is particularly attractive to companies like Bra Plast that focus on clear, thin-wall packaging. Excellent organoleptic properties are also reported for this material. Based on proprietary Borealis nucleation technology and Borstar polymerization technology, this material is said to provide an optimized balance of mechanical properties, such as good drop impact at ambient temperatures, good top-load resistance, and stackability.
