Elvaloy® Modifier Resin

Ethylene Copolymer Resins For Application-Specific Performance

DuPont™ Elvaloy® resins enhance the characteristics of other resins, making them more durable, more flexible, and longer lasting.

DuPont™ Elvaloy® ethylene copolymer resins are compounded with other resins to increase flexibility, toughness, long-term outdoor exposure, and soft touch. Applications include ready-to-eat meal packaging, PVC and other plastics modification, asphalt paving, cable jacketing, and roofing membranes.

DuPont™ Elvaloy® AC modifier resin is used in PET trays for frozen (CPET) and refrigerated (APET) meals. It improves low-temperature toughness of PET, resulting in less tray breakage during preparation, distribution and use, which helps reduce waste. Elvaloy® AC also replaces PVC in non-invasive medical tubing and bag applications.

For CPET converters, Elvaloy® AC improves the on-line recyclability of PET resins by maximizing regrind utilization and allowing the use of low-IV PETresins, or even RPET. It also improves process stability, reducing costs, and making it a high-performing, cost-effective solution.
