  • Elastochem offers a comprehensive range of Polypropylene

    Elastochem has expanded our range of ExxonMobil Polypropylene, and now offer melt flows from 4 to 50.

    • 4 mfi = ExxonMobil PP7032E3 (Flex Modulus 1100)
    • 4 mfi = ExxonMobil PP7032KN (Flex Modulus 1345)
    • 8 mfi = ExxonMobil PP7033N
    • 20 mfi = ExxonMobil PP7684KN
    • 30 mfi = ExxonMobil AP03B
    • 40 mfi = ExxonMobil PP7675KE2
    • 50 mfi = ExxonMobil PP7555KNE1

    This includes recently introduced grades PP7032KN, PP7684KN and PP7555KNE1.

    This expanding grade slate reflects ExxonMobil's commitment to the market by expanding their Singapore Polymer Plant.

    With such a wide grade slate offering, short lead times out of Singapore, and local stocks we are sure Elastochem can meet your Polypropylene requirements.
