Material Notes:
Description: Engage® 8003 polyolefin elastomer is an ethyleneoctene copolymer that has excellent flow characteristics and performs well in a wide variety of general purpose thermoplastic elastomer applications. It provides good impact properties in blends with polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE). Engage® 8003 also provides high filler loading capability and outstanding peroxide cure capability. When crosslinked by peroxide, silane, or irradiation, it gives exceptional heat aging, compression set, and weather resistance properties, and may be used to produce high performance electrical insulation and jacketing. The product form is free-flowing pellets.Information provided by manufacturer.This former DuPont Dow Elastomers product line is now produced by Dow Chemical.
