DelStar Technologies has begun manufacturing Delnet apertured films from TPX, a 4-methylpentene-1 based polyolefin, which displays a unique combination of physical properties and characteristics that will benefit their existing markets. The TPX Delnet films will provide safe and non-toxic advantages in medical, food-grade and other applications requiring high heat resistance, transparency, light weight, good release or good chemical and hydrolysis resistance. DelStar Technologies can produce new TPX Delnet apertured films in a multitude of configurations. Further, this new product will have improved processing characteristics over traditional polypropylene
and polyethylene Delnet products due to the inherent properties of the TPX copolymer.
