Olefin block copolymers.

Infuse olefin block copolymers (OBCs) feature a block architecture that is said to deliver enhanced performance and processing properties beyond current olefin elastomers, including outstanding high temperature performance, faster set-up in processing (reduced cycle times), improved abrasion resistance and excellent elasticity and compression set properties, both at room and elevated temperatures. Infuse OBCs were developed using Insite technology, the company's proprietary approach to linking the science of catalyst, process and materials to address customer needs. Through this approach, a leading edge catalyst system was developed that allows for control of the molecular architecture required to produce the olefin-block structure in a continuous process. The block structure is said to be the key to delivering the outstanding properties of the Infuse olefin block copolymer family. The Infuse olefin elastomers are said to enable a wide range of new application opportunities for converters and manufacturers of flexible goods and products. Infuse OBCs further support the trend toward olefin-based specialty elastomers. (Dow Chemical)
