Flexible packaging films

Flexible packaging films

Clearly superior

It’s estimated that 40% of food and 11% of products never make it to the consumer because of spoilage or damage. Some think the answer is more packaging. At Ascend, we think the answer is better packaging.

Our new patent-pending HiDura PTR® resins for films are puncture and tear-resistant – minimizing the likelihood of product or food damage throughout the supply chain. HiDura PTR® resins give packaging designers the flexibility to downgauge or maintain their current film thickness and increase protection.


HiDura PTR® resins are easily processed on traditional film manufacturing equipment including blown, cast and Designed for sustainability biaxial-oriented film processes. They also are compatible with other resins used in multilayer films including tie layers, barrier layers and polyolefins. With tailored crystallization rates, our grades enable high-gloss and superior transparency films.
