Polypropylene

November 30, -0001

Basell has developed a new high fluidity polypropylene grade that can  address customer requests for more demanding resin performance in melt blown textile  applications. The resin, Moplen HF1005, is a very narrow molecular weight homopolymer with a melt  flow rate (MFR) of 1500 and is the latest addition to Basell’s comprehensive nonwovens  grade range. The grade is  beneficial during the production of colored melt blown nonwovens, as it  can minimize organic pigment degradation and improve processability.
