General Information

Moplen PP EPC 40 R is a heterophasic polypropylene copolymer designed for injection molding battery cases and technical items. The product offers an excellent balance of mechanical properties and process ability and features an excellent long-term heat- stability. Articles molded with Moplen PP EPC 40 R offer a good balance of stiffness and toughness, good surface properties and a very high resistance to chemicals and crazing.

Typical applications

Moplen PP EPC 40 R is largely used for automotive components; Battery cases, cooling water compensation reservoirs, brake fluid reservoirs, wash water reservoirs, dashboard supports, luggage compartment trims and door trim panels are typical applications.

In the electro-technical industries, Moplen EPC40R is used for appliance, cables and wires (e.g. as slotted core element in fiber optic cables).

Moplen PP EPC 40 R is especially suitable for food contact.
