Want to increase product performance and simplify production? Reduce the cost of production and keep the same equipment? Consider Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomer (PBE).

Polymer compatibility
As a polyolefinic copolymer of propylene and ethylene, Vistamaxx PBE is highly compatible with polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE), making it easy to combine with a range of polymers.

Vistamaxx PBE and its blends with PP and PE offer an excellent alternative to polymers such as polyisobutylene (PIB), styrene isoprene styrene (SIS) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Vistamaxx PBE can simply be added to compounds or used as a drop-in replacement to enhance product properties.

Production efficiency
Using its free-flowing pellet form, which requires no drying (non-hydroscopic), Vistamaxx PBE can streamline production. Its processing ease translates into manufacturers often being able to use existing equipment without making adjustments.

Whether injection molding, blow molding, foaming, thermoforming, extrusion blow molding or low temperature processing is used, Vistamaxx PBE can deliver excellent product performance and processing efficiencies.

No pre-qualification for food applications
If you are producing compounds for food contact applications, Vistamaxx PBE may be used in select food contact applications. Customer service can offer official food law certificates which provide more detailed information.
