TOPAS Advanced Polymers

Protective Packaging Films

Make Protective Packaging that's thin yet strong, retains air, and is recyclable.

Not Your Ordinary Barrier

To protect cargo all the way to the consumer's home or office, pillow packs must retain air longer than PE alone can. Some barrier solutions rely on incompatible polymers that compromise reclaim and recycling. But TOPAS® COC is a barrier ethylene copolymer that delivers the necessary air retention - and does not prevent recycling of used air cushions and trim.

Stiff and Strong

With much higher stiffness than PE, TOPAS COC can enable downgauging of protective pillow films. That's a real environmental plus, and a cost saving too. And the extra stiffness can ease film handling during the inflation process.

So Simple

PE films enhanced with TOPAS COC look like standard polyethylene films, and can be produced on standard plastic film manufacturing lines. TOPAS COC also enhances thermoforming, so traditional bubble-style protective packaging is more uniform, in addition to the barrier and stiffness benefits.
