TOPAS® 5013F-04

TOPAS® 5013F-04 by TOPAS Advanced Polymers is an ethylene-cyclic olefin copolymer (COC). This glass-clear, amorphous food grade resin enhances polyethylene packaging film performance. It provides excellent clarity, high stiffness/modulus and high water vapor barrier properties and good thermoformability. Its good flowability and high temperature resistance makes it ideal in coextruded films as a discrete layer or in blends with PE. It enables the development of higher value films on standard PE film lines. Films containing 5013F-04 generally can be reclaimed and recycled with PE. TOPAS® 5013F-04 is suitable for cast film and blown film extrusion and is typically blended or coextruded with PE. TOPAS® 5013F-04 complies with FDA directive 21 CFR 177.1520 for direct food contact and is available worldwide.
