Materials: Clearly unique polyolefin extrusion grades

Invision enhanced polyolefin resins for sheet and profile are comprised of high-melt-strength TPO compounds and durable high-performance olefinic capstock resins. “Our Invision enhanced polyolefin resins are well positioned as high-value products that address the sheet and thermoforming industry’s critical needs for durable resins that can also be colormatched to exacting appearance requirements,” says Paul Boulier, VP and CMO of supplier A. Schulman.

Materials: Clearly unique polyolefin extrusion grades

Invision enhanced polyolefin resins for sheet and profile are comprised of high-melt-strength TPO compounds and durable high-performance olefinic capstock resins. “Our Invision enhanced polyolefin resins are well positioned as high-value products that address the sheet and thermoforming industry’s critical needs for durable resins that can also be colormatched to exacting appearance requirements,” says Paul Boulier, VP and CMO of supplier A. Schulman.

Invision high-gloss capstock resin is noted for its extreme clarity and durable surface, enabling a “paint-like” surface finish without the risk of chipping or peeling and without the environmental challenges resulting from the painting process. Invision TPO resins offer durability and dimensional stability, making them ideal for demanding body-panel applications in the agriculture, personal watercraft, heavy truck and bus, and lawn and garden areas, for example.

Invision materials are based on patent-pending polyolefin compositions that can be used in monolayer or multilayer coextruded sheet and profile applications. The product family includes:
• Invision 1040: A high-melt-strength thermoformable TPO that balances impact resistance and stiffness. It can be extruded as a monolayer, or as the substrate of a multilayer sheet or profile structure.
• Invision 3568: A low-gloss, thermoformable, non-stress-whitening olefin capstock material. It readily accepts textures in embossed applications and provides a soft, nontacky feel.
• Invision 3566: A high-gloss, thermoformable, non-stress-whitening olefin capstock material. Invision color technology, combined with the high-clarity capstock resin, allows the capstock resin to match the appearance of any painted color. —[email protected]
