The company offers a wide range of products suitable for all major applications and processes, as well as innovative new products with expanded capabilities, which are used by customers to replace traditional materials and other plastics.
We have expertise in converting our products with a variety of leading process technologies to ensure our customers are able to obtain polypropylene grades optimised for their market needs.
Through our local market knowledge, R&D support from joint venture owners, and the latest process technologies in place, HMC ensures our customers enjoy a pipeline of product advancements to help maintain their leading edge.
The polypropylene products produced by HMC Polymers are the basic building blocks used to manufacture countless everyday goods such as consumer products, fresh food packaging, automotive and electrical components, durable textiles, medical applications, pipe systems and many others.
The main types of PP manufactured and marketed by HMC Polymers are:
Moplen Homopolymers (Homo)
Homoploymer grades exhibit high heat resistance and good rigidity which allows their use in a vast range of general purpose and specialty applications.
Moplen Impact Copolymers (HECO)
Impact Copolymer grades are made by incorporating rubbers into the polymer matrix and are extremely resilient materials with an outstanding combination of low temperature impact and stiffness.
Moplen Random Copolymers (RACO)
Random Copolymers are made by introducing comonomers into the polymer chain and therefore provide improved optical properties. They are used by customers in applications such as packaging where good transparency is required.
specialty grades provide an enhanced balance of impact, stiffness and heat distortion temperature (HDT) versus standard polypropylene grades.
polypropylene grades are especially characterized by improved optical properties vs. conventional PP types and are available for a wide range of applications.
The industry-leading healthcare product and service concept offering consistency of formulation, continuity of supply, and compliance with regulatory standards, i.e. EU or US pharmacopeia.
Expanded Product Capabilities
By expanding the range of polypropylene’s properties, HMC Polymers continues to reinvent and increase the possible applications where PP may be used.
Spherizone extended product properties
These include the replacement of existing plastics or other traditional materials with superior products offering benefits including cost, processing, optics, impact resistance, light-weighting, recyclability and aesthetics.
New and improved PP products continue to be developed by leveraging the state-of-the-art process technologies driving our production; in particular, Spherizone
. This process allows development of products that are not attainable using conventional polypropylene technologies.
These enhanced properties include:
Combined stiffness of a homopolymer with the transparency and processability of a random copolymer
Very high melt strength materials
New heterophasic copolymers combining very high stiffness with outstanding low temperature impact resistance
Combined transparency and low temperature impact resistance
HMC Polymers continuously focuses its product portfolio to deliver targeted solutions that respond to and anticipate the needs of our customers and new trends in today’s dynamic business environment.
