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™ E1015PL-1 is a copolymer of propylene and ethylene, pelletized and coated with a low-density polyethylene powder, having a melt viscosity of 1,500 mPa·s at 190°C.

Packaging & Availability

+
Packaging Information

Standard Package Type: Eastoflex™ E1015PL-1 is available in bags (50-lb net weight), 2,250-lb net weight per pallet. Bags are made of Polypropylene.

Pellets are coated with polyethylene to prevent blocking.

Storage & Handling

+
Storage

Due to the thermoplastic behavior, pelletized material may fuse, block or lump. This can be accelerated under any of the following conditions: 1) above ambient temperature, 2) prolonged storage, 3) pressure, e.g., stacking pallets, or a combination of these conditions.

For improved handling, we therefore recommend storing the material in a temperature-controlled area, be careful with stacking material or applying pressure and preventing prolonged storage.

It should be noted that lumping does not have a negative impact on the product specifications. Due to the nature of the product, claims regarding lumping cannot be accepted.
