TotalEnergies announced the commercial launch of a new high-density polypropylene resin for tethered cap applications, allowing to reduce material usage, enhance recovery and improve recycling.
The new HDPE 20HD07 resin has enhanced mechanical and organoleptic properties, enabling identical technical cap performances with less material than market reference, thus reducing the carbon footprint of end applications, such as beverage or cosmetic bottles. Furthermore, it has been designed for monomaterial PE packaging solutions to facilitate sorting and recycling, and hence contributes to the circular economy.
Suitable for food-contact applications, this new product complies with all the caps and closures market requirements. It is fully in line with the European Directive (EU) 2019/904 on the reduction of the impact of plastic products on the environment.
