Ecdel elastomers are plasticizer free copolyester elastomers (COPE) that offer clarity, toughness, flexibility, and chemical resistance needed in a variety of flexible packaging including flexible medical and pharmaceutical packaging applications. Ecdel elastomers are radiation, electron beam, ethylene oxide, and autoclave sterilization stable. Ecdel 9966 may be injection molded or extruded. Ecdel elastomers may be extrusion blow molded directly into bags or extruded into film for later fabrication into bags. Ecdel 9966's medium inherent viscosity makes it a good general purpose elastomer.
