A new, developmental polyolefin elastomer provides broad service temperature performance when combined with branched polypropylenes.
Dow Chemical Co.'s ENR 7487 is a high-melt-strength polyolefin elastomer designed to improve economics, processing and aesthetics in extrusion blow molding, thermoforming and high-shear profile extrusion. It provides benefits to PP without the need for reactive processing, according to the Midland, Mich., resins major.
Made by Dow's Insite technology, the material offers high melt strength and exceptionally low gloss, and can provide low-temperature ductility in injection molded parts, the firm said.
ENR 7487 is an ethylene-butene copolymer with a melt index of less than 0.5 gram per 10 minutes and a Shore A hardness of 58. Dow said the material can deliver the benefits of advanced thermoplastic polyolefin compounds to a wider range of applications.
