Dow ENGAGE™ 8157

Polyolefin Elastomer (POE)

ENGAGE™ 8157 Polyolefin Elastomer is an ethylene-octene copolymer that has excellent flow characteristics and provides superb impact properties in blends with polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) and is widely used in TPO applications where excellent low temperature impact properties are desired. ENGAGE 8157 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. ...
