Food packaging
The above mentioned grade meets the relevant requirements of plastics directive 2002/72/EC
(06-08-2002) and its amendments till directive 2008/39EC relating to plastic materials and
articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs .
Pharmaceutical Application
The above mentioned grade meets the requirements of the European pharmacopeia version 6
section 3.1.5 for pharmaceutical application.
Conveying equipment should be designed prevent accumulation of fines and dust particles can,
under certain conditions, pose an explosion hazard. We recommend that the conveying system
1. be equipped with adequate filters
2. is operated and maintained in such a manner to ensure no leaks develop
3. that adequate grounding exists at all times
We further recommended that good housekeeping will practiced throughout the facility

As ultraviolet light may cause a change in the material, all resins should be protected from
direct sunlight and/or heat during storage. The storage location should also be dry, dust Free
and the ambient temperature should not exceed 50 0C. It is also advisable to process
polyethylene resins (in pelletized or powder from) within 6 months after delivery, this because
also excessive aging of polyethylene can lead to a deterioration in quality.
Minimal protection to prevent possible mechanical or thermal injury to the eyes. Fabrication
areas should be ventilated to carry away fumes or vapors.
Polyethylene resins will burn when supplied adequate heat and oxygen. They should be
handled and stored away from contact with direct flames and/or other ignition sources .in
burning; polyethylene resins contribute high heat and may generate a dense black smoke. Fires
can be extinguished by conventional means with water and mist preferred. In enclosed areas,
fire fighters should be provided with self contained breathing apparatus.
