Purell HP548N and RP315M
Polypropylene Grades for Healthcare Applications
LyondellBasell introduces Purell grade HP548N, a polypropylene (PP) resin offering improved rigidity, and Purell grade RP315M, a PP resin with an exceptional balance between mechanical and optical properties. Customers report that in application Purell HP548N offers the potential for faster cycle time, while Purell RP315M excels in the production of cast film.
Outperforming other homopolymer polypropylene grades, Purell HP548N offers improved stiffness, which is a property highly valued by customers when rigidity is required for certain medical applications. This grade is an ideal homopolymer for injection molding technology and offers an optimized balance between fluidity, stiffness and crystallization behavior. Customers report that this grade provides advantages during processing, such as time, cost and energy savings. Purell HP548N is used by customers in vials, pill strips, medical devices, syringe plungers and rigid containers.
Purell RP315M is a random copolymer that offers a good balance of physical/mechanical and optical properties for cast film applications. This new resin features excellent sealing performance, an additive package containing slip and anti-blocking agents, low gel content with good optical and aesthetic properties and a wide processing window. Some typical customer applications for Purell RP315M include packaging of medical devices, cosmetics, flexible packaging, labware and caps and closures for the pharmaceutical industry.
