Petrothene® NA345

Generic Family: Polyethylene, Low DensitySupplied by: LyondellBasell Industries
PETROTHENE NA 345 is a series of homopolymer resins that combine premium clarity with strength and stiffness. In addition, NA 345 exhibits good impact strength on both flat and creased film. NA 345 is recommended for textile packaging, light produce, bread bags and other thin packaging films enhanced by clarity and sparkle. The optical values of NA 345 actually improve with decreases in film gauge and are maintained at wide die gap settings. This fact leads to important cost savings. Film can be drawn down to a minimum gauge consistent with required physical properties, with the assurance that optical properties will not suffer, but improve. With wider die gaps back pressures are reduced, as are extrusion costs.
