TAFMER™ Polyolefin Elastomer Applications

TAFMER™ is widely used in automotive, industrial, and packaging applications, and may be processed by:

  • Cast and Blown Film Extrusion
  • Extrusion Coating 
  • Pipe Extrusion 
  • Injection Molding 
  • Foam and Calendering 

Automotive Applications

The TAFMER™ A, DF, and P series of ethylene based copolymers are used to enhance polypropylene (PP), for injection molded automotive parts including bumpers, instrument panels, and trims. As a component of a thermoplastic olefin (TPO) compound, TAFMER™ offers:

  • Improved Cold Temperature Impact Resistance and Ductility
  • Controlled Gloss and Paintability
  • Sustained Resistance to Heat Degradation and Weathering 

Packaging Applications

TAFMER™ enables the film engineer or package designer to:

  • Adjust Easy-Peel Properties
  • Maximize Impact Resistance
  • Optimize Heat Seal Properties and Retain Transparency 
  • Control Shrink Properties and Self-Adhesiveness
  • Minimize Stress Whitening 

 

Polyethylene Modification

The TAFMER™ A and M series of ethylene based copolymers are used to enhance the properties of polyethylene (PE) for cast films, blown films, as well as extrusion coating.
