The Dow Chemical Company has introduced Infuse Olefin Block Coploymers (OBCs), a breakthrough in olefin elastomers. The unique block architecture of Infuse OBCs delivers enhanced performance and processing properties beyond current olefin elastomers, including outstanding high temperature performance, faster set-up in processing (reduced cycle times), improved abrasion resistance and excellent elasticity and compression set properties at both room and elevated temperatures. Infuse will enable olefin elastomers to further expand into a wide range of market applications including flexible molded goods, profile extruded products, hoses and tubes, elastic fibers and films, foams, coated fabrics, adhesives and tapes.
