Bridging the gap between plastics and elastomers
Queo plastomers are a range of low-density ethylene copolymers made possible by combining metallocene catalyst technology with the Borceed™ solution polymerisation process. The comonomer used by Borealis plastomers is octene. As the name implies, plastomers bridge the gap between plastics and elastomers. They exhibit many of the physical properties of a rubber and combine this with the processing advantages of a thermoplastic.
