Clear plastic totes


Producing rigid, clear plastic totes made from random copolymer polypropylene (RCP) that have the right balance of impact performance and transparency is a challenging process. It requires styrene ethylene butylene styrene (SEBS) resins to modify impact performance and uses either low-density plastomers (which do not provide sufficient transparency) or high-density plastomers (which do not provide adequate impact performance).

Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomer (PBE) at 5 to 10% in RCP can easily be dry blended into your existing process to:

  • Deliver the right balance of properties
  • Improve impact performance for reduced breakage
  • Maintain RCP transparency for an excellent overall appearance
  • Offer a lower impact modification cost than with SEBS
