Sabic has developed two new high clarity Qrystal PP random copolymers with flow behaviour that suits faster injection moulding. Sabic PP QR674K has a melt flow rate (MFR) of 40g/10min. It was developed for more sensitive food contact applications, owing to its improved organoleptic performance Typical target applications are caps and closures, houseware, kitchenware and food/non-food containers. Sabic PP QR678K, with its high MFR of 80g/10 min, is better suited to production of parts with complex shapes and/or long and narrow flow paths. The company said customer trials have shown around 15% higher flow than a standard PP random at the same MFR level, allowing machines to run at lower processing temperatures and 15% faster cycle times, potentially decreasing production costs.
