EP-T 30 M

EP-T 30 M

EP-T 30 M is a medium flow, heterophasic polypropylene copolymer.
This grade combines excellent stiffness with high impact and is suitable for injection moulding and thermoforming. Because of its particular balance of mechanical properties, EP- T 30 M is widely used for injection moulding toys, sports articles, small containers, housewares, closures and caps. Technical application are components for appliances and parts for the automotive industry .
Thermoformed cotainers are another important application of EP-T 30 M.
