Testing Film Compatibility and Stability

Agencies require users to establish their product contact performance data for both short term accelerated and long term storage under appropriate storage conditions. Virgin Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) remains the reference standard for product contact packaging evaluations.

This formulation incorporates the polymerization catalyst but is devoid of additives such as anti-stat agents, lubricants, etc. Modified films of Polyethylene, PVC, and polyurethane, etc may create problems due to additive migration out of the film into adjacent products. LLDPE presents the lowest potential risk for adverse outcomes.

We strongly advise that users check film compatibility with all intended materials packaging. Process outcomes can be affected when a leached film additive passes through your process without early detection, even if chemically changed. The analytical complexity of identifying and tracking such contaminants can be an overwhelming task.
