Enhancing properties


Want to innovate by enhancing your product’s polymeric properties? Want to tailor your compound to achieve specific end-product performance criteria? Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomer (PBE) can do just that.

With Vistamaxx PBE, you can establish performance criteria and “fine-tune” your polymer formulation, such as a polypropylene (PP) or linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) film, to meet your needs. Vistamaxx PBE allows you to develop a compound with a balanced set of tailored properties, including toughness, durability, flexibility, transparency, softness and aesthetics.

Among the many opportunities for product innovation, the addition of Vistamaxx PBE to compounds enables you to:

  • Improve impact strength for less breakage
  • Increase flexibility for durability
  • Enhance elasticity for better stretch and comfort
  • Simplify part structure (can replace multi-layer or laminated structures)
  • Increase transparency
  • Reduce stress whitening for better aesthetics
  • Improve softness for a comfort-touch feel
  • Build on its excellent adhesive properties for better sealing
  • Make parts lighter
