SURPASS® HPs267-AB Resin

New moisture barrier resin technology offers previously unachievable polyethylene performance

SURPASS HPs267-AB resin sets the new standard in moisture-barrier performance. With improved barrier performance over our best-in-class HPs167-AB, the new HPs267-AB enables longer shelf life by protecting moisture sensitive layers and products in food packaging.

HPs267 helps advance the circular economy by enabling replacement of metallized or PET-laminate non-recyclable films with recyclable, PE-based designs. Packaging engineers also have more flexibility to design a wide range of barrier films without sacrificing moisture barrier performance, toughness or processability.

Designed for blown films, HPs267 is ideal for a wide variety of food packaging applications including meat, cheese, cereals and crackers, baking staples, high fat content foods, pet food and more.
