Reducing total cost

Santoprene TPV Reduced system cost

With Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomer (PBE), you can develop low total cost solutions while enhancing performance.

It can deliver cost savings through:

  • Replacement of higher priced styrenic block copolymers (SBC), thermoplastic urethane (TPU) and adhesives, allowing simpler designs and construction while contributing to manufacturing ease
  • Replacement of SBC and TPU can lower formulation costs in nonwoven fabrics such as elastic laminates
  • Development of new soft solutions on conventional spunmelt equipment, without having to invest in expensive upgrades such as bicomponent (bico) technology

In addition to these cost benefits, the properties and processing ease of Vistamaxx PBE can enable manufacturers to simplify operations.
