Koattro KT MR05

Smart Polymer with "Self-Healing" Properties

With Koattro KT MR05 LyondellBasell has developed a new plastomer with "self-healing" properties. The energy injected by the cutting instrument melts the amorph-soft surface and the two components can be joined together before the surface recrystallizes.

This material could be used to advance the production of seals for aluminum, plastic and wooden windows and doors. The components are cut and pressed onto the carrier surface without the use of glues, adhesives, special tooling or the need for extensive preparation work.

This product blended with polypropylene enhances softness, elastic recovery, elongation at break and impact resistance whilst improving transparency and reducing stress whitening.

Koattro is a novel family of high-molecular-weight Plastomers with unique properties. Developed by LyondellBasell R&D Center in Ferrara, Koattro materials are obtained polymerizing Butene-1 and are based on a proprietary LyondellBasell technology. They are characterized by several unique properties such as transparency, softness, flexibility without the use of plasticizers and products that are elastic without any cross-linking. Koattro Plastomers are manufactured in the Polybutene-1 production unit at Moerdijk, the Netherlands, using both Ziegler-Natta and Metallocene catalyst technology.

LyondellBasell has just received a European Innovation Award from PlasticsEurope and the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) in the category "Material Innovation" for their novel product.
