PP Modification

PP is used in wide range of applications due to its excellent mechanical properties, and needs of PP modification are diversifying. Three TAFMER™ series have been developed to accommodate those market needs.

TAFMER™ DF & A Series

TAFMER™ DF & A Series form a phase-separated morphology when mixed with PP, improving impact strength, without sacrificing stiffness of base resin.

TAFMER™ XM Series

TAFMER™ XM Series offers improved heat seal properties, such as low temperature heat sealability, hot tack and heat seal strength in packaging film application.

TAFMER™ PN Series

TAFMER™ PN Series is a unique propylene based elastomer with perfect miscibility with PP. It offers similar modification effect on impact resistance as TAFMER™ DF & A Series without sacrificing transparency. Its unique characteristics also function as stress whitening inhibitor, offering improved hinge property in various molded products.
