Ixan® PVDC Special Combination of Properties Delivers Unique Capabilities

The versatile property profile of Ixan® PVDC grades means they can satisfy complex packaging requirements by simplifying film structures to only 3-5 layers. In medical applications such as ostomy bags, it allows patients to lead an active life in the sure knowledge that there will be no leakage.
 

Complete Food Approvals Compatibility

Ixan® PVDC base resins and formulated premixes are compatible with all global food contact approvals. Compatibility certificates can be obtained by request.
