Hifax X 1956 M



Hifax X 1956 M is a reactor TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) manufactured using the LyondellBasell`s proprietary Catalloy process technology. This grade is primarily used in polyolefin-based compounds to improve mechanical properties and enhance moulded part appearance. In particular, the product is used by our customers for providing tiger stripe resistance and advanced aesthetics in compounding and automotive, for both painted and unpainted components. The grade is available in natural pellet form.
