Invista Expands Its XPURE® Polyester Product Range

HATTERSHEIM, Germany — December 2, 2013 — INVISTA, one of the world's largest integrated polymers and fibers producers, announces the expansion of its XPURE® portfolio of polyester products made with a next generation catalyst system.

Recent additions to this portfolio include the XPURE 7001 and 701K polyester copolymers. XPURE 7001 polyester is an amorphous resin while XPURE 701K is a pre-crystallized resin. Both products offer a melting point of about 224°C which is about 30°C lower than a standard polyethyleneterephthalate. Application examples include packaging films and bicomponent fibers.

Invista's XPURE polyester polymers are manufactured with a new generation catalyst system and offer easy flowing properties for better processability, a well as the possibility to use non-reactive thermal bonding methods.

"Initial customer testing of XPURE 7001 and 701K polyester polymers have been extremely well received," said Achim Heyer, business director Europe, polymers. "Customers reported a wider processing window versus standard polyesters, allowing to manufacture non-standard products such as thick transparent films. We hope that the expanded range will build a business growth platform for our valued customers."

Food contact approvals and confirmations are available on request.
