Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomers provide high filler loading capability with outstanding flexibility in carpet tile backing systems. Using Vistamaxx in these compounds creates the potential to meet specifications with a thermoplastic solution.

Potential benefits

  • High filler loading (up to 75% calcium carbonate) with significantly more flexibility than other polymers without oil
  • Easy processing and good dispersion
  • Lightweight alternative to PVC
  • Recyclability

Typical concentrations of Vistamaxx propylene-based elastomers are between 25-30% for these and similar applications.
