Hifax CA 12 A



Hifax CA 12 A is a reactor TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) manufactured using the LyondellBasell’ s proprietary Catalloy process technology.
It is suitable for industrial applications where a combination of good processability and excellent softness is required. Hifax CA 12 A exhibits low stiffness, low hardness and good impact resistance. The material shows high compatibility to other polyolefins as well as to other soft plastics. Hifax CA 12 A is cross linkable.
The grade is available in natural pellet form.
