Entec Polymers now is distributing Catalloy, Polybutene-1 and Koattro specialty resins for LyondellBasell Industries.
Orlando, Fla.-based Entec is adding those materials as an expansion of their specialty polyolefin products, officials said in a recent news release. Entec will target the materials at the automotive and packaging markets.
Catalloy includes the Adsyl, Adflex and Hifax trade names and is designed for toughness, heat resistance and stiffness. The materials will complement commodity polyethylene and polypropylene uses. Polybutene-1 grades — including Toppyl — are used as flow enhancers and in seal-peel applications for flexible packaging.
Koattro is a new family of high molecular-weight plastomers that offer improved compression set, softness and elastic recovery in clear PP uses.
“These product families will bolster growth with customers in our strategic markets,” Entec product manager Kirt Dmytruk said in the release. Entec is a unit of global distribution, compounding and recycling firm Ravago Group.
