  • Package

    25kg aluminum bag, each 20′ container can load 17mt
    800kg aluminum big bag, each 20′ container can load 16mt

  • Storage

    Temperatures during transportation and storage should not exceed 70 ºC. Keep resin in dry and ventilated warehouse to prevent moisture. Avoid contacting with soil, water and sludge, and no exposure to direct sunlight and extreme temperature. The maximum shelf life is 2 years in ambient temperature of 23ºC if the package has been tightly sealed.

  • Processing guide

    It is recommended to pre-dry the material prior to getting the best processing performance. If the moisture of the resin isless than 0.05% pre-drying may not be needed. Typical drying conditions: 2 hours at 80ºC (175ºF).

    It is not suitable for direct film blowing, it is suggested to add slip additive like SiO2 or CaCO3, it can also be blended with starch, PLA, PHA, cellulous etc. Normally the extrusion temperature is 140ºC -170ºC which depends on formula and processing machine, it is important to make sure the blowing machine starts from the lowest temperature. If the blowing performance is not optimized it is recommended to increase the temperature by 5ºC.
