Vanderbilt Chemicals, LLC offers a full line of mineral reinforcing agents including kaolin, pyrophyllite and wollastonite to meet the needs of the Plastics Industry.
Vistamaxx™ PP-based Elastomers
Vistamaxx™ Propylene-based Elastomer (PBE) is an olefinic elastomer produced using ExxonMobil Exxpol™ technology. It has good elastomeric properties and is compatible with olefin-based polymers, particularly polypropylene, providing olefin polymers with true elasticity. Vistamaxx™ PBE enables companies to develop innovative solutions that can improve product performance and manufacturing efficiency. It can also contribute to potential sustainability benefits by downgauging packaging films, reducing material use, reducing wall thickness in rigid packaging, and strengthening products to avoid breakage or waste. It can also reduce energy use through lower temperature processing.
