  • Increase impact strength for reduced breakage
  • Increase ambient to low-temperature impact resistance
  • Improve durability, aesthetics and versatility when blended with PP
  • Increase flexibility for durability and ease of installation
  • Upgrade elasticity for an excellent compression set in foamed applications
  • Increase transparency to maintain clarity in PP for aesthetics
  • Reduce stress whitening
  • Improve softness to help achieve the targeted tactile feel
  • Improve mechanical compound properties when replacing oil
  • Offer excellent adhesive properties
  • Make products lightweight yet durable
