Alathon H4837



Alathon H4837 is a high-flow "freezer" grade resin that exhibits enhanced cold temperature impact performance, enhanced processing, and thermal stability with good color and organoleptic properties. Typical applications are rigid food containers such as 4-, 5- and 6- quart ice cream containers that are produced in fast cycling multi-cavity stack molds.
