curatives, filters, antidegradants, plasticizers and process aids are all used. As with other high-performance, heat-resistant elastomers, the choice of potential additives tends to be smaller and selection more specific. Equal attention must be given to avoiding ingredients that might give detrimental effects.

Choosing the Right Plastic Material for Your Product

Product designers, entrepreneurs, and inventors often ask Extreme Molding for material recommendations when manufacturing their products. With thermoplastic materials (plastics, resins, or polymers that are moldable above a specific temperature and then solidify when cool) there are countless choices out there and we often suggest enlisting the help of material suppliers as well as molders to ...

Industrial polyolefins. Most polyolefin produced on an industrial scale are made via polymerization through the use of catalysts. There are four major types of polyolefin catalysts, namely: (1) chromium-based catalysts; (2) Ziegler–Natta catalysts;(3) metallocene single-site catalysts (SSC); and (4) post-metallocene SSC. All four categories ...
