Himont commercializes family of resins.

The Resins North America group of Himont, Wilmington, DE, has introduced a new family of olefinic copolymers using the company's proprietary Catalloy process technology. Offering increased puncture and heat resistance and increased strength with an inherent softness and low noise factor, the new resins target geomembranes, high-strength packaging and biohazard waste bag applications. The Catalloy process polymers offer the added benefit of enabling processors to expand their capabilities without the expense of machine modifications as the new resins can be run on all existing thermoplastic methods. The family of 20 resins is produced at a site in Bayport, TX.
