Brand: 
EASTOFLEX
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™ E1003 is a copolymer of propylene and ethylene having a melt viscosity of 300 mPa·s at 190°C.

Compatibility and Solubility

Broad compatibility with numerous elastomers, polymers and tackifying resins. Eastoflex™ APOs have shown to be compatible with the following materials: aliphatic tackifying resins, asphalt, butyl rubber, hydrogenated tackifying resins, low density polyethylene, mineral oil, natural rubber, polybutene, polybutlyene, polypropylene, polyterpene tackifying resins, and SEBS block copolymers.

Packaging & Availability

+
Packaging Information

Eastoflex™ E1003 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 lb per pallet.

Eastoflex™ E1003 is available for blending with other APOs. Blends with E1003 and others APOs can allow for a more convenient product form.

Please be aware that there are additional costs and lead times associated with the made to order package types.

Storage & Handling

+
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 or cylinders.
