Nano crystal structure-controlled elastomer
TAFMER™ PN is newly launched product, revolutionizing the understanding of elastomer. Combining the softness of elastomer and the heat resistance of polypropylene, TAFMER™ PN Series offer characteristics that were previously thought to be impossible.
TAFMER™ PN is propylene based material with controlled morphology. Its crystalline elements show remarkably high heat resistance in spite of its softness. Furthermore, these crystalline elements are finely dispersed in amorphous matrix, which ensure excellent transparency.
TAFMER™ PN is miscible with PP and has an ability to improve impact resistance of PP. These two characteristics offer a great advantage in applications requiring both transparency and impact resistance. In addition, PP modified with TAFMER™ PN exhibits improved hinge strength and reduced stress whitening. These features are demonstrated not only in films but also in various molded products.
