ApplicationsPLEXAR tie-layers are chemically modified resins used to bond unlike materials, primarily in packaging and industrial applications. Common adherents include polyethylene resins and copolymers, such as EVA or EMA, polypropylene, polyamide (nylon), ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymers (EVOH), ionomer and other sealants, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins and copolymers, styrenic polymers, metal, paper, and many others. Product grades tailored for blow and cast films, sheet and thermoforming, blow molding, extrusion coating and lamination, tubing, pipe, spray coating and other specialty applications are available in pellet form. Contact your Plexar sales and/or Equistar technical service representative for more information and specific recommendations for your application(s). Regulatory StatusPlexar tie-layers meet the requirements for the Food and Drug Administration regulation 21CFR 175.105 for adhesives. This regulation describes adhesives which may be safely used as components of articles intended for use in packaging, transporting or holding food in accordance with conditions outlined in that regulation. For an adhesive formulation to be used in compliance with Sections 175.105, it must be used under conditions that prevent the material from becoming a component of food in more than insignificant, de minimis, amounts. For more information, please contact your Equistar product safety representative. Processing TechniquesA process melt temperature above 41Â°F (210Â°) is recommended to ensure adhesion between adherents. More specific suggestions can be made only when equipment, process parameters and conditions of use are known.
