Anteo™ FK1820

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Borealis

Anteo™ FK1820 by Borealis is a recyclable, linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) grade, containing an antioxidant and polymer processing aid (PPA). It is produced using Borstar® bimodal terpolymer technology. It combines outstanding sealing performance with easy processabilty, good optics and superior mechanical properties. It enables energy saving and motor load with excellent bubble stability. Provides excellent mechanical strength, organoleptic properties with excellent balance between extruder pressure and physical properties of a film. Films made by Anteo™ FK1820 exhibits a unique combination of low seal initiation temperature (SIT), high hot tack force, excellent puncture and balanced tear strength. Used in combination with Borstar® PE/ BorShape™ PE/ LDPE/ PP products which offer high performance transparent flexible packaging solution with potential for down gauging. Designed for processing by coextrusion and blown film extrusion. Suitable for use in heavy duty shipping sacks (HDSS), lamination, stand up pouch, agricultural film, multi-layer packaging film, stretch cling film, stretch hood, frozen food packaging, form fill seal (FFS), transparent film, liner, artificial grass, lamitude and protection film applications. Complies with Australian Standard 2070 - 1999, Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004, Regulation (EU) 2011/10, FDA CFR Title 21 §177.1520 olefin polymers, GB9685-2008, GB 4806.1-2016 and GB 4806.6-2016 food contact regulations. This product is recommended to blend with 5% LDPE.
