Product Highlights

Aegis® H155C1WP polyamide copolymer is designed specifically to improve processability during film manufacturing/converting, and end-use performance during distribution. This is  proven to increase extruder throughput and reduce haze when incorporated into multilayer co-extruded cast or blown film structures. Aegis® H155C1WP Copolymer is ideal for use in shrink film for bone-in meat and other protein applications where thermoformability, high shrink, ovenability and puncture resistance are critical to deliver the desired shelf life and improve consumer satisfaction. This product is also ideal choices for retorted stand-up pouches (SUP) where thermal stability, flex-crack resistance and clarity are required to deliver on-the-shelf appeal.

Attribute Aegis® H155ZP Homopolymer (PA 6) Aegis® H155C1ZP Copolymer (PA 6/66) Aegis® H155C1WP Copolymer (PA 6/66) Copolymer Benefits
Tensile Strength* O + + + About 4-6% higher strength
Tensile Modulus* O Similar to baseline, about 10% lower
Elongation to Break* O + + About 65% higher elongation
Toughness O + + Higher puncture resistance for bone-in-meat and snack packaging
Flex Crack O + + Increased durability for bulk wholesale packaging like bag-in-box
Deep Draw Formability O + + Deeper forming packages with fewer blow-outs (e.g. trays and cups)
Shrinkability O + + Greater and more consistent shrink
Clarity O + ++ Improved with less haze in blown film
Curling O + + Reduced curling for better processability in non-symmetric structures
Softness O O + Improved flexibility and softness
Processability O + + + Aegis® H155C1ZP and H155C1WP copolymers allow higher throughput on blown film lines at lower gage H155C1WP also reduces extruder torque for greater efficiency
Density O O O Same as baseline
