Metallocene PE film

Metallocene PE film
Total mPE



Total mPELumicene Supertough 32ST05 metallocene polyethylene (mPE) film offers a unique opportunity for flexible packaging converters to achieve films that are up to 25% thinner and stronger than existing solutions for film on the market. It is a downgauging alternative for multilayer structures that embraces the industry need for easy to process, high-performance, lightweight solutions for the industrial packaging, personal care/hygiene and food sectors. The step-change mPE innovation offers a distinctive combination of outstanding strength and toughness, even at low temperatures. These technical characteristics overcome the traditional limits and drawbacks of thinner films, allowing converters to create a very strong film using less material, but with the easy processing advantages of LDPE.


Several multilayer applications already demonstrating the grade's extensive potential include deepfreeze and lamination films, and highly-demanding shrink applications, for example glass bottle unitization. Supertough 32ST05 is a member of a new and innovative family within Total's Lumicene portfolio.
