LyondellBasell

Description

Softell CA 02 A is a reactor TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) manufactured using the LyondellBasell`s proprietary Catalloy process technology. It is primarily used for the extrusion, calendering and extrusion blow molding of very soft film and sheet. Softell CA 02 A exhibits outstanding low stiffness, excellent low hardness and very good impact resistance. Softell CA 02 A shows high compatibility to fillers and flame retardant additives as well as to other polyolefins. The grade is available in natural pellet form.
