Sabic: high melt flow PP for lightweight breathable nonwovens
Sabic high melt flow PP for lightweight breathable nonwovens
02.11.2018 The chemical company Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), Riyadh/Saudi Arabia, has introduced an innovative new polypropylene (PP) resin product engineered to deliver enhanced properties in melt-blown fibers for nonwoven fabrics. The new product, designated PP 514M12, can serve a wide range of potential end-uses in personal hygiene applications and other market segments.
PP 514M12 is based on phthalate-free and odor-free technology that offers very good processability for melt-blown fibers with high levels of drawability, spinnability and uniformity. The resulting nonwovens are developed to combine high barrier properties and absorption with breathability in thin and lightweight high-performance webs of enhanced conformability and reduced material consumption.
