EXTRUSION COATING



  Perfectly suited for liquid food packaging, photographic paper, flexible and commercial packaging

The extrusion coating market is a specialized market demanding for specific technical requirements. We are committed to working with our customers in order to continuously improve the performance of our resins. 

Solutions to customers

NOVA® Olefins & Polymers extended its product range with low to medium polar comonomer for demanding applications and adhesion. These grades are supplied into our key markets

Modified LDPE grades such as NOVA® PE demonstrate an excellent combination of properties including processability and adhesion up to line speeds of 650 m/min.

We recommend that short chain branched LLDPE such as NOVA® PE be selected for applications which require excellent ESCR and/or improved mechanical or sealing properties.

Low Density Polyethylene
LDPE is the most commonly used polymer in extrusion coating. Our broad LDPE product range for extrusion coating fulfils different requirements on processing and/or application. You can choose between LDPE grades with excellent draw down ability or with very low neck in. The wide range of LDPE grade densities offer different barrier and sealing properties and also influence the tendency for blocking

Grafted - Copolymers

The polar Comonomer grafted plastics grade range from NOVA® Olefins & Polymers low to medium comonomer content, shows improved adhesion characteristics especially to aluminum foil or to metallized films. It can be used in mono- or co-extrusion at high line speeds or at low coating weights and has a similar processing window to LDPE.

Polypropylene

PP has high temperature and grease resistance properties and therefore it is commonly used in the pet food market or for microwave oven applications. Here we are offering a ready to use modified PP for mono- or co-extrusion also which can be used in co-extrusion or in blends with LDPE.
