Capilene® CW 85 AV

A new polypropylene grade from Carmel Olefins offers outstanding processability, combined with mechanical and optical properties that are particularly suited to TWIM food packaging and consumer applications.

Capilene® CW 85 AV

Aimed at Thin Wall Injection Moulding (TWIM), Carmel Olefins new Capilene CW85AV polypropylene (PP) resin meets the most demanding requirements for rigid packaging and consumer goods. Engineered via an innovative and unique technology, Capilene CW85AV bridges the gap between PP random and impact copolymers, offering similar benefits from both in displaying good transparency combined with a high impact/stiffness balance.

It also has an exceptional stress-whitening (blush) resistance and high gloss, making it a preferable choice for demanding applications where excellent aesthetics is desired.

  • High melt-flow
