Engineering Plastics Modifier TAFMER® MH Engineering plastics modifier: excellent compatibility with various engineering plastics (PA6, PA66,PBT); superb impact resistance at low temp., good chemical stability, excellent heat and weather resistance. Japan
Polyolefin Elastomer
(C2 based)
TAFMER® A, DF, H Flexible molding resin : softness, low density (lighter than EVA), excellent low-temp.property, non-halogen (PVC free). It can be used as an alternative to soft PVC or EVA without using plasticizer. Applications: Wire and Cable sector, foaming, compounding, film and sheet extrusion. Singapore
Polyolefin Elastomer
(C3 based)
TAFMER® XM Modifier for olefin-based resins (especially PP) :superb in modifying heat-sealability at low heat sealing temp., excellent transparency and surface gloss, good scratch resistance. Applications: BOPP film, CPP film, PP shrink film, PP sheet, transparent PP injection moulding. Japan
Polybutene-1 TAFMER® BL Polybutene-1: stable sealing strenght against wide range of sealing temperatures, semi-compatible with ethylene based resins (LLDPE,LDPE,EVA). It is used in packaging as sealant layer (easy peelable film) and for hot water pipes. Japan
EVOH EVAL® EVAL resin is mainly used as functional (gas) barrier in food packaging applications. Keeping oxygen out, the EVAL layer preserves the flavour and the quality of the food.It's also used in medical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic,agricultural and industrial pack as well as in underfloor heating pipe and plastic fuel tanks. Belgium
Adhesive Polyolefin resin ADMER® ADMER resin is a modified polyolefin, designed to bond to a variety of polyolefins, ionomers, polyamides, ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), PET, polycarbonates, polystyrenes and metal. It serves as a tie-layer in multi-layer structures to combine the excellent properties of different materials, such as gas and moisture barrier resins. Germany
PP-based Elastomer NOTIO® NOTIO is a flexible, low density, transparent elastomer with excellent heat resistance. The resin is not cross- linked and demonstrates superior elasticity. NOTIO's crystalline and amorphous structure (morphology) is controlled at the nano scale, allowing for the realization of properties that cannot be achieved with conventional elastomers. Japan
METHYLPENTENE Copolymer TPX ® High performance resin, used for injection or extrusion. Excellent transparency, chemicals and heat resistance, peel ability, gas permeability, low refractive index, food-sanitation properties, steam resistance. Used for release paper, animal cage, chemical tubes, cosmetic caps, medical, small appliances and cable coating. Japan
