Material Notes:
Description: Engage® 8445 polyolefin elastomer is an ethyleneoctene copolymer that performs well in a wide range of thermoplastic elastomer applications. It has excellent compatibility with other polyolefins, allowing for efficient blending and coextrusion. Engage® 8445 provides excellent flow properties and is efficiently cross-linked by peroxide, silane, or irradiation. When cross-linked, it gives exceptional heat aging, compression set, and weather resistance properties. The product form is free-flowing pellets.Information provided by manufacturer.This former DuPont Dow Elastomers product line is now produced by Dow Chemical.
