Mitsui Chemicals’ TPX is a 4-methylpentene-1-based olefin copolymer, which has a unique molecular structure. Even though it is a crystalline olefin polymer, it shows transparency.
Thanks to its excellent heat-resistance, release property and chemical resistance, TPX is used for industrial materials, including mandrels and sheaths in the manufacture of high-pressure rubber hose, mold cups to create LED light and other applications such as release film on FPC manufacturing process and release paper in the manufacture of synthetic leather.
TPX is a halogen-free polymer denoted as environmentally-friendly material. It is also used for food-related applications such as food wraps, microwave oven tableware and more.
