Exact™ plastomers  

Plastomers are ethylene alpha olefin copolymers that bridge the gap between elastomers and plastics. With rubber-like properties and the processability of plastic, they are used as polymer modifiers to provide unique properties in flexible packaging, molded and extruded products, wire and cable, and foaming compounds.


  • Flexible packaging – enhanced toughness, clarity and sealing performance
  • Molded and extruded products – improved impact strength and flexibility
  • Wire and cable – enhanced physical properties when combined with fillers and additives
  • Foaming compounds – added durability to lightweight shoe midsoles
