Olefin block copolymers (OBC) are polyolefin elastomers made of alternating flexible and hard blocks. Flexibility is provided by the soft blocks, and heat protection is provided by the hard blocks. This block structure provides an excellent performance mix of flexibility, heat resistance, elastic recovery, abrasion resistance, and processability.
OBCs are frequently used as polymer modifiers, foams, elastic films, adhesives, soft grips, toys, carpeting, housewares, hose and tube, soft wheels, cap liners, and different injection moulded parts.
The Global EV Olefin block copolymer market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Infuse Olefin Block Copolymers were launched by Dow for elastic blown films. For elastic diaper components, training pants, and adult incontinence articles, these grades provide soft stretch performance and increased elasticity at a higher value. They also give converters the chance to process materials that are stable at high temperatures for optimal throughput and efficiency in an all-olefin solution.
Customers who want elastic and softness in their diaper ears, waistbands, and side panels can get it from elastic laminates manufactured with Infuse. Because Infuse has a lower glass transition temperature than other propylene-ethylene copolymers tested by Dow, it exhibits a softer stretch performance, resulting in laminates that keep a body-hugging fit without causing discomfort.
Infuse is a comparable yet more affordable substitute for styrene block copolymer elastic laminates because it enables processors to tailor the required degree of elasticity and aids in the preservation of form when products are worn and stretched.
According to reports, Infuse OBCs are also built on light hydrocarbon feedstocks, which means that little energy is expended during production and that very little carbon dioxide is emitted. By providing a practical solution that produces soft, secure products for the maximum in comfort and trust in film and laminate applications, Infuse is aiding in the reshaping of the elastic component market.
