TAFMER™
alpha-olefin copolymer

TAFMER™ is a low crystalline or amorphous alpha-olefin copolymer based on Mitsui Chemicals' proprietary technology, using its state-of-the-art know-how in polyolefin and rubber materials.

TAFMER™ has lower density, lower modulus, and lower crystallinity, compared to polyethylene(PE) or polypropylene(PP).
