ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: LyondellBasell Industries NV (LYB) has introduced Moplen grade EP310J HP, a polypropylene (PP) resin offering improved sealing strength and produced using a non-phthalate based catalytic system to meet the growing global demand for food pouches.

With this new addition, LyondellBasell delivers to its flexible packaging customers a broad PP portfolio to produce from freezable to retortable packaging films. 

Moplen EP310J HP is suitable for lamination and outperforms other PP heterophasic copolymers by offering high impact, good puncture and good tear resistance combined with high seal strength and integrity.

This grade advances versatile packaging for a wide variety of food and beverages and enables differentiation in size, design complexity and filling options. Additionally, it delivers advantages during production, such as time, cost and energy savings by offering excellent homogeneity and good flowability for processing on high speed and high throughput lines.

"Our Moplen heterophasic copolymer family of grades offers industry-leading products based on LyondellBasell’s pioneering resin and manufacturing technology developments,” said Dario Giudici, marketing manager of LyondellBasell PP flexible packaging Europe.
