Random Copolymers

Random copolymers are produced via the addition of ethylene with propylene during the polymerisation process. This random incorporation of the ethylene in the homopolymer matrix during polymerisation results in PP resins with excellent transparency and gloss, with lower stiffness compared to PP homopolymers, but with higher impact properties at room temperature.

The versatility of Random copolymers allows their use during in the construction of buildings for pipes for hot and cold water distribution, cost-effectively replacing traditional alternatives.

When the aesthetics of Random copolymers are enhanced by clarification, it provides the opportunity to place them in multi-use rigid, durable applications such as food savers and sports bottles where its combination of lightweight, clarity, impact, odour and heat resistance make it an ideal substitute for glass and other plastics.

Benefits

  • Excellent aesthetics and optical properties
  • High impact properties at room temperature and good heat stability and chemical resistance characteristics
  • Lower melting temperature and easy flow can lead to process optimisation opportunities
