Dow ENGAGE™ 8003

Polyolefin Elastomer (POE)


ENGAGE™ 8003 Polyolefin Elastomer is an ethylene-octene copolymer that has excellent flow characteristics and performs well in a wide variety of general purpose thermoplastic elastomer applications. ENGAGE 8003 provides superb impact properties in blends with polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE). It also provides high filler loading capability and outstanding peroxide cure capability. When cross-linked 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. ...
