Teknor Color Co.'s new polyethylene compounds for rotational molding allow property enhancement or downgauging by as much as 15 percent, according to the Pawtucket, R.I., company.
TekTuff materials cost the same as cross-linkable PE and advanced metallocene PE but they are tougher and stiffer, according to Teknor. Their properties allow them to replace cross-linkable PE in applications such as watercraft and containers where high chemical resistance is not an important property. They are recyclable and eliminate the need for cross-linking agents.
