Product Highlights

Widely used to manufacture vacuum bags, casings and pouches for packaging, Aegis® resins deliver outstanding performance that is valued by film producers and their customers. The strength and barrier qualities of Aegis® resins help maintain everything from the aroma of fine ground coffees to the freshness of high-value steaks, and the integrity of life-saving medical devices. These resins offer outstanding performance that provides improved protection and extended shelf life for food and other products in consumer and industrial markets. They also help maintain the aroma and taste of foods. Good flexibility and performance over a wide range of temperatures makes them a material of choice for many applications.

Performance

Aegis® resins are specifically engineered for packaging applications, and are available in low, medium and high viscosity grades with a variety of additive options. Excellent processability during extrusion and consistent quality ensures optimal process performance and end product quality. They are suitable for fabricating film through nonoriented and biaxially-oriented (BOPA) cast film extrusion, as well as multilayer blown film extrusion. These films can be coextruded or laminated with other materials or films, such as polyethylene or ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), to achieve the required optimal packaging properties.

Key Nylon Film Benefits

Tear and puncture resistance Superior aroma and gas barrier
Flex crack and retort resistance Superior thermoformability
Oil, fat and grease resistance Superior flexibility and toughness
Excellent transparency Heat resistance for hot filling

Processing Guidelines

Material Handling

Aegis® H100MP homopolymer is supplied in sealed containers and drying prior to processing is not required. However, high moisture is the primary cause of processing problems. If drying becomes necessary, a dehumidifying or desiccant dryer operating at 80°C (176°F) is recommended. Drying time is dependent on moisture level. Further information concerning safe handling procedures can be obtained from the Safety Data Sheet. Alternatively, please contact your AdvanSix representative.

Applications

From flexible packaging for food and consumer products to vacuum bagging for industrial goods, Aegis® packaging grade resins are widely used in a variety of applications, including:

  • Processed meats and cheeses
  • Coffee, nuts and spices
  • Snacks and frozen foods
  • Pet foods
  • Detergent bags
  • Composite fabrications
  • Medical devices
  • Novelty balloons

Extrusion Guidelines

Melt Viscosity vs. Temperature

Melt Temperature: 220°C (428°F)
Melt Temperature Range: 232°C (450°F) to 271°C (520°F).
Two key factors affect the melt viscosity (stiffness or fluidity of the melt):

  • The molecular weight (Mw) of the resin: Higher Mw resins will have a higher melt viscosity than lower Mw resins.
  • Temperature of the melt for any given Mw resin: Higher process temperatures will provide a more fluid melt viscosity than lower process temperatures.

Typical Barrel Profile for Cast Films

Barrel: 230-260°C (446-500°F)
Adapter: 260-266°C (500-510°F)
Die: 260°C (500°F)
Process Melt Temperature: 260-270°C (500-518°F)

Typical Barrel Profile for Tubular (Blown) Films

Barrel: 246-254°C (474-490°F)
