Ixan (PVDC : Polyvinylidene Chloride)

Barrier films made with Ixan® PVDC extrusion resins are unique in their combination of properties which include transparency, high shrinkage, excellent water vapor and oxygen barrier, flavor and aroma barrier, microwavebility, good mechanical resistance and toughness.

In medical applications such as ostomy bags, this allows patients to lead an active life in the sure knowledge that there will be no leakage.

Multi-layer films using Ixan® PVDC copolymers are manufactured using both cast and blown film process technology. The versatile property profile of Ixan® PVDC grades offers the possibility to satisfy complex packaging requirements by simplifying film structures to only 3-5 layers.
