Polypropylene Random Copolymer
(Extrusion & Blow Moulding Grade)


General Information

EP2X83CE is a clear polypropylene random copolymer particularly suited for blow molding technology and single or multi-layer sheet extrusion. The product impacts excellent clarity and gloss and these characteristics may be further enhanced through orientation process (i.e. injection stretch blow molding). Due to these properties EP2X83CE is an interesting alternative to P.V.C. for use in blow molding, sheet extrusion and thermoforming applications.

Typical applications

Blow molding applications include bottle for detergents and toiletries, flat mineral water, fresh fruit juice and concentrates, jar for condiments and preserves.

Extruded sheets made of EP2X83CE are widely used in stationary folders and thermoforming articles such as trays for fresh pasta, sweets or biscuits, fruit and vegetable containers and pots for dairy products.

EP2X83CE is especially suitable for food contact.
