Raw materials

LDPE, HDPE, PP, hard PVC and PETG are physiologically inert and are suitable for the appropriate packaging and storage of foodstuffs. They fulfil the valid German regulations and the EG- Directive 90/ 128 together with the corresponding supplements EEC 92/ 39, 93/ 9 and 95/ 3.

This catalogue and included data sheets are intended to fully inform you. The information it contains is valid and in accordance with our experience and knowledge at the time of publication.

Testing the suitability of our products and the materials used in their manufacture for their intended use is the responsibility of our customers. This is the reason why it is not possible to derive a binding warranty for any particular properties or for the suitability of a product or material for a specific purpose from advice provi- ded by us.

Polyolefins (PE): LDPE, HDPE, PP

physiologically inert

flexible and inherently stable

good chemical resistance

shatter-proof

PP is autoclavable

Polypropylen (PP)

rigid and inherently stable

very good chemical resistance

features a very good resistance against tension cracking

in thin layers almost transparent, thicker layers are trans- lucent up to opaque white

Low-density Polyethylene (LDPE)

flexible, tough and shatter-proof

in thin layers almost transparent, thicker layers are trans- lucent up to opaque white

resistant to water, aqueous solutions and most chemicals

excellent water vapour resistance

High-density Polyethylen (HDPE)

rigid and shatter-proof

slightly transparent in thin layers, in thicker layers weakly trans- lucent to opaque white

resistant to water, aqueous solutions and most chemicals

excellent water vapour resistance

Polyvinyle chloride (PVC hard)

physialogically inert

crystal-clear or transparent brown

good chemical resistance

extremely rigid, high breaking resistance

high transparency

resistant to water, aqueous solutions, alcohols and oils

slight gas permeability, e.g. to oxygen

adequate water vapour resistance in most cases

Co- Polyester (PETG) (Polyethylen Terphtalat Glycole)
