A balance of low crystallinity and low molecular weight is said to allow processors and formulators to achieve thermoplastic polyolefins (TPOs) that flow faster, blends that are more flexible and durable, masterbatches that are more heavily filled and hot melt adhesives that stick better, according to the manufacturer.
The polyester also features high crystallinity and dimensional stability, which are ideal for a variety of laminating processes, as well as use in gas and liquid filtration, medical and industrial markets.
