Product Description
SABIC PP 519A is a polypropylene homopolymer resin specifically designed to enable optimised production speed of very fine filament titre resulting in an excellent balance of mechanical properties and softness.The rheological performance of SABIC PP519A is providing the potential to optimise production efficiency especially for fibre production characterised by consistent high speed and low non wovens weights at reduced temperatures. SABIC PP519A can also be used for continuous filament spinning like partially oriented yarn (POY). SABIC PP 519A has a very narrow molecular weight distribution. SABIC PP 519A is compatible with all existing spun bond/continuous filament machine technologies producing different non woven compositions. SABIC PP 519A has a special developed anti gas fading formulation to minimise discolouration of the fibres.

Applications:
SABIC PP 519A is typically used for the production of non wovens and fibres used in: Diapers, feminine care, apparel, crop/flower protection, concrete reinforcement, building, geo-textiles.

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