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™ E1015 is a copolymer of propylene and ethylene, having a melt viscosity of 1,500 mPa·s at 190°C.

Packaging

Made to Order Package Type – solid form only

Eastoflex™ E1015 Amorphous Polyolefin can be packaged in drums. These are 22.5-inch inside diameter drums, 4 drums per pallet. Drummed material is sold by net weight per pallet, approximately 1,200 lbs per pallet.

Please be aware that there may be additional costs and lead times associated with this package type.



Storage
Molten material should be handled entirely in closed systems blanketed with an inert gas, such as nitrogen. Molten material can be stored satisfactorily under nitrogen in a steel tank at 350°F to 390°F. Inside storage is recommended for Eastoflex™ APOs packaged in drums.
