Product Description
Eastoflex™ Amorphous Polyolefins (APOs) are characteristically saturated, low molecular weight, propylene-based olefin polymers. These products are inherently soft, tacky, and flexible, having a broad compatibility with numerous elastomers, polymers, and tackifying resins. Eastoflex™ APOs are characterized by consistent quality, low odor, good heat stability, and low color. Eastoflex™ E1015PL-1 is a copolymer of propylene and ethylene, pelletized and coated with a low-density polyethylene powder, having a melt viscosity of 1,500 mPa·s at 190°C.

Comments
Properties reported here are typical of average lots. Eastman makes no representation that the material in any particular shipment will conform exactly to the values given.

Compatibility and Solubility
Broad compatibility with polyolefin polymers, waxes and hydrocarbon tackifying resins.

Packaging

Standard Package Type: Eastoflex™ E1015PL-1 is available in bags (50-lb net weight), 2,250-lb net weight per pallet. Bags are made of Polypropylene.

Pellets are coated with polyethylene to prevent blocking.



Storage

Due to the thermoplastic behavior, pelletized material may fuse, block or lump. This can be accelerated under any of the following conditions: 1) above ambient temperature, 2) prolonged storage, 3) pressure, e.g., stacking pallets, or a combination of these conditions.

For improved handling, we therefore recommend storing the material in a temperature-controlled area, be careful with stacking material or applying pressure and preventing prolonged storage.

It should be noted that lumping does not have a negative impact on the product specifications. Due to the nature of the product, claims regarding lumping cannot be accepted.
