EP-T 30 U

EP-T 30 U

EP- T 30 U is a heterophasic copolymer for injection moulding applications.
EP- T 30 U combines outstanding processability with extremely high impact resistance.
EP-T 30 U is designed for applications where very high toughness is a primary requirement.
Some of the major applications of EP- T 30 U are consumer goods such as housewares, toys, indoor and outdoor furniture and suitcases.
Other applications are parts for sports equipment and bicycles , and technical components.
In the material handling and packaging industries, EP-T 30U is widely used for injection moulding boxes, containers, pallets, crates, pails and lids.
For these applications very high impact polypropylene offer definite advantages over HDPE because of the better stack ability and stress cracking resistance.
EP- T 30 U is also suitable for bitumen modification and various compounding applications.
