SITTARD, THE NETHERLANDS: Sabic has developed the next generation of flowpact polypropylene (PP) impact copolymers to help manufacturers of many types of injection moulded rigid packaging make stronger products in packaging industry.

Rigid packaging made with Sabic PP FPC45, including types that can be hot-filled, has considerably higher top-load strength than identical products made with current benchmark materials. This in turn improves stackability, providing better economics in transport and storage.

Sabic PP FPC45 incorporates important advances in polymer chemistry that yield a material with a balance in stiffness and impact strength that SABIC believes are unmatched in the market.

The good flow properties of Sabic PP FPC45 further facilitate thin walling and fast injection, and a higher crystallization temperature will enable parts to be demolded faster—reducing energy consumption and increasing productivity at the processor.

Sabic PP FPC45 is developed for production of rigid packaging with volumes ranging from as low as 200 ml to as large as around 10 litres. It can be used for containers intended for packaging foods and non-food products. Sabic PP FPC45 might also be used for caps and closures, as well as for production of house wares.

“We saw a need in the market for a material capable of delivering higher top load strength and superior stiffness in hot filling applications, what we have achieved is significant. Sabic PP FPC45 delivers a top load strength that is some 17 percent higher than current benchmark materials commercially available today,” said Bert Claessens, polypropylene business manager.

"Sabic plans to debut additional products towards the end of this year. This is the beginning of a new wave of products from Sabic for rigid packaging—and for other segments as well. We are upgrading our full portfolio to cater for unmet needs in the market. This is part of a major innovation drive in the company,” added Claessens.
