TPX® Polymethylpentene (PMP) Applications

TPX®, a 4-methylpentene-1 based polyolefin manufactured solely by Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. is now available in small order lots from Goodfellow.  This lightweight, functional polymer displays a unique combination of physical properties and characteristics due to its distinctive molecular structure.  Like polyolefines TPX® shows excellent chemical resistance, which is better than that of polycarbonate and acrylic.

The properties of TPX® make it ideal for extruding items such as film and paper coating, injection moulded items and blow moulded components, and we list some of the possible applications below:
