Trapylen® 145 X 5 is a chemically modified low-chlorinated polypropylene renowned for its remarkable affinity to polyolefinic plastics, including PP, PP/EPDM-blends, and, with certain limitations in adhesion strength, PE. The resin in Trapylen® 145 X 5 is characterized by a higher molecular weight within the range of 110,000 and a significantly lower chlorine content compared to other maleic-modified Trapylen® grades. These specific properties contribute to improved adhesion, as well as enhanced heat and chemical resistance. It is primarily utilized as a straight primer, with its principal application in the treatment of molded parts and sealing profiles in the automotive industry, including bumpers, side panels, and door seals.

Product Highlights
  • TRAPYLEN® 145 X 5 is a chemically modified low chlorinated polypropylene with outstanding affinity to polyolefinic plastics such as PP, PP/EPDM-blends and, with limitations to adhesion strength, to PE.
  • The resin in TRAPYLEN® 145 X 5 has a higher molecular weight in range of 110 000 and a much lower chlorine content in comparision to other maleic modified TRAPYLEN® grades. These properties improve the adhesion and as well the heat and chemical resistance but lower the solubility and compatibility.
