Polymer pellets manufactured for many functional applications

The unique properties of Hydropol™

Owing to its high hydrolysis level, Hydropol™ reacts to water at controlled temperatures and has a much wider range of potential applications than cold water-soluble flakes.

Material properties

Hydropol™ has several useful material properties:

Water-soluble

Hydropol™ will work at varying hydrolysis levels but is predominantly designed for high hydrolysis to maximise application potential.

Stable and storable

As Hydropol™ has been formulated into a standard plastic pellet, it is stable in normal storage conditions

High-strength

Hydropol™ is approximately 3 times stronger than polyethylene at the same thickness of film

Heat-sealable

Hydropol™ can be heat sealed using standard heat-sealing processes

Electrostatic-resistant

Hydropol™ is designed to naturally dissipate electrostatic energy

Ultra-violet-resistant

Hydropol™ is naturally resistant to UV light
