Product Description
SABIC® PP 526K is a grade developed for efficient thermoforming. The additive package is designed for optimum balanced production properties. SABIC® PP 526K is formulated with a combined processing, antistatic and nucleator package of the next generation, giving it the best performance possible. The nucleator technology provides higher stiffness and good transparency/gloss in the thermoformed part. The fact that the polymer/additive package gives higher isotropic processing behaviour reduces warpage, ovality and other dimensional problems,making this grade unique and ideally suited for productivity improvements.

SABIC® PP 526K is typically used for various thermoformed parts sensitive to dimensional stability. Customers use this grade as natural or coloured, ranging from food containers to disposables, yellow fats and lids.

The product mentioned herein is in particular not tested and therefore not validated for use in pharmaceutical/medical applications.
