The sealant seals to numerous rigid cup or tray structures including high-impact polystyrene (HIPS), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET), polypropylene (PP) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE).
According to Dow, the material's clarity is comparable to that of amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET) and general-purpose polystyrene-butadiene copolymer (GPPS/SBC); its increased stiffness over conventional polypropylene allows for reduced wall thickness, and its high heat-distortion temperature and reduced density versus competitive materials enable faster processing and reduced part weight, respectively.
