Product Description
Purell PE 1840 H is a low density polyethylene with good flexibility and delivered in pellet form. It is used by our customers mainly for small blow moulding of heathcare applications such as ampoules but also be used in film applications and injection moulding.

Without exception, all potential activities for applications in the pharmaceutical, medical device, laboratory and diagnostics area have to be discussed with the relevant Technical (P & AD) and Business contacts first.

To discuss a medical/pharmaceutical application please contact: your local Distributor or your local LyondellBasell contact.
