“The properties of our new Enable 40-02 product allow converters to produce thinner and stronger bundling films versus existing solutions,” said Terry Tucker, polyethylene market development manager, ExxonMobil Chemical.

A 3-layer, 60 micron film which utilizes Enable 40-02 delivers a number of valuable attributes including: exceptional mechanical properties which can provide downgauging opportunities of up to 25 percent for unit cost and weight reduction; improved clarity for shelf appeal and vibrant graphics; and controlled TD (transverse direction) shrink performance for more consistent shrinkage. Additionally, the excellent processability of Enable 40-02 delivers consistent quality films, high speed operations and good output, resulting in lower resin use and energy consumption.

These high performing, sustainable collation shrink films, produced using Enable 40-02, offer optimum solutions to ensure products such as bottled beverages, canned good, health or beauty products and others are tightly secure, protecting goods throughout the value chain.
