The nonwovens business is crucial to olefin
producers--more than 60% of olefin
in the first quarter of 2003 went to nonwovens.
For polyester, the dependence upon nonwovens has always been much less than for olefin
More often than not, nonwovens outperform the conventional textile uses for olefin
Table 2 takes the total domestic shipments of olefin
and polyester staple, subtracts the nonwovens uses and then shows the balance shipped to all other markets (called for convenience "Textile")
depended on nonwovens producers for 69% of its shipments during the first quarter of 2002.
Even in a virtually static market, olefin

A copolymer of a conjugated diene compound and a non-conjugated olefin
includes a random copolymer having randomly arranged monomer units of the conjugated diene compound and of the non-conjugated olefin
, which random copolymer contains, by at least 5 mol %, alternate bonding units of the conjugated diene compound and the non-conjugated olefin
in a unit derived from the non-conjugated olefin
