SHA7260 is a high-density polyethylene specifically designed for injection molding, offering ease of processing and high productivity. This resin exhibits a good melt flow, providing high rigidity and hardness to the molded products. Its narrow molar mass distribution reduces the tendency to warpage. The minimum biobased carbon content of this grade is 94%, determined according to ASTM D6866.
