Aliphatic hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins

Aliphatic hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins offer a broad range of properties, with glass transition temperatures ranging from 10°C to 90°C. Several grades comply with U.S. FDA regulations for direct food contact.

Benefits of SBC-based TPE compounds include:

  • Higher temperature performance
  • Lower compound viscosity
  • Low viscosity at low frequencies
  • Improved compression set
  • Improved adhesion to olefin and polycarbonate substrates

Amorphous polyolefins

Eastoflex™ amorphous polyolefins (APOs) are characteristically saturated, low molecular weight, propylene or propylene-ethylene based olefin polymers. These products are inherently soft, tacky, and flexible, having a broad compatibility with numerous elastomers and polymers. Eastoflex™ APOs are characterized by consistent quality, low odor, good heat stability, and low color.

Benefits of SBC-based TPE compounds include:

  • Can reduce hardness of final compound
  • Lower compound viscosity
  • Low viscosity at low frequencies
  • Can be used to extend elastomers
  • Improved adhesion to olefin and metallic substrates

Aromatic pure monomer resins

Aromatic pure monomer resins are water-white in color with excellent thermal and UV stability. Glass transition temperatures range from 20°C to 110°C.

Benefits of SBC-based TPE compounds include:

  • Higher temperature performance
  • Improved compression set
  • Improved processability
  • Improved mechanical properties
  • Improved green strength
  • Improved adhesion to olefin and polycarbonate substrates

Mixed aromatic and aliphatic hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins

Mixed aromatic and aliphatic hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins offer a broad range of properties, with glass transition temperatures ranging from 10°C to 50°C. Several grades comply with U.S. FDA regulations for direct food contact.

Benefits of SBC-based TPE compounds include:

  • Lower compound viscosity
  • Improved compatibility/co-continuity between the dispersed and continuous phases
  • Low viscosity at low frequencies
