EP-Q 30 M

EP-Q 30 M

EP-Q 30 M is a high molecular weight, heterophasic polypropylene copolymer designed for extrusion applications which require a balance of high stiffness and very good impact strength.
EP-Q 30 M offers excellent processability in extrusion.
The final items show very good mechanical properties. even at temperatures down to - 20 °C .
Major applications of EP-Q 30 M are profiles, pipes, ducts for electrical distribution and automotive parts.
This grade is also used for extrusion blow moulding pigmented, glossy monolayer bottles for toiletries, detergents and foodstuffs.
EP-Q 30 M is also well suited for corrugated board and sheet fat thermoforming.
