LyondellBasell has launched Purell PE 3420F, a new low density polyethylene grade (LDPE) for pharmaceutical packaging applications.

According to the firm the product “has higher sterilization temperature resistance and provides significant wall-thickness reduction potential, which offers various cost-saving capabilities for customers.”

Patrik Schneider, manager of technical services, said: "If the sterilization process is a rate-limiting step in production, Purell PE 3420F resins can address this challenge for customers by providing shorter sterilization times and reduced associated costs through the use of higher temperatures."

LyondellBasel also said that the resin's high density and excellent melt strength include the potential for wall thickness reduction while maintaining a high water vapor barrier.

It added that shelf life can be extended while maintaining wall thickness at previous levels. The high melt flow leads to excellent processing and high design versatility.
