INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announced today that its Styroflex® PG77 has been selected by Hualo Film, a leading full-service supplier of flexible plastic and laminate packaging and technical films in China, as the material of choice for its stretch hood film solution.
Styroflex is a styrene-butadiene block copolymer (SBC) with the properties of a thermoplastic elastomer (S-TPE). In film applications, Styroflex provides excellent stretch recovery and superior transparency and puncture resistance. Styroflex PG77 was particularly tailored for packaging applications like stretch hood solutions. It combines maximum transparency with outstanding elongation and extreme toughness. Styroflex PG77 can be stretched up to 200% with enormous recovery capacity: It snaps back to its original shape, clings tightly to the load and holds it securely.
Mr. BinSen Wen, President, Hualo Film, says: “Styroflex PG77 significantly improves the packing efficiency, especially for goods with various shapes and dimensions, allowing us to better meet our customers’ requirements. In addition, the superior elasticity of this material enables Hualo to explore new markets without any extra machinery investments.”
“We are very excited to be able to collaborate with Hualo to bring our innovative stretch hood solutions into the Chinese market,” says Paulo Motta, Vice President, Specialties Business Management, Asia Pacific, INEOS Styrolution. “We are fully committed to continue providing Hualo with the best material solutions in the future and fulfilling its ambitions in the flexible packaging industry.”
