Exact plastomers are ethylene alpha olefin copolymers that bridge the gap between elastomers and plastics, with rubber-like properties and the processability of plastic.These grades are well suited for polymer modification, Exact plastomers can enable property balance in PP-based TPO parts and can help manufacturers meet comfort and weight goals without sacrificing performance in EVA foam.
Exact plastomers are used extensively as impact modifiers in polypropylene and engineered polymers for automotive interior trim, bumpers and other parts. They are also useful in crack-resistant rigid packaging, high-impact consumer products, wire and cable applications and numerous industrial applications. Exact plastomers are sold as easy-to-blend pellets.
Here are some of the unique properties of the Exact grades:
- Flexible packaging – enhancing toughness, clarity and sealing performance
- Molded and extruded products – improving impact strength and flexibility
- Foamed compounds – adding durability to lightweight shoe midsoles
The following chart shows the general data sheet for the Exact Grades.
