Exact™ plastomers  

Exact™ 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.

We offer a broad portfolio of high-performance Exact plastomers that includes octene, hexene and butene grades. These innovative plastomers are suitable for use in a wide range of applications.
