LyondellBasell Akoalit PB 4237 grey Polyolefin
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyolefin

Material Notes: Akoalit polybutene-1 homopolymers (PB-H) show improved water quality properties providing the potential to meet stringent future organoleptic requirements. An increased melt flow ratio (MFR) allows up to 50% faster processing due to reduced sensitivity to process-induced orientation. AkoalitĀ PB 4237 grey is a highly isotactic homo polyolefin manufactured from butene-1 monomer. The product provides excellent long term hydrostatic strength also at elevated temperatures combined with high flexibility. Akoalit PB 4237 complies with requirements specified in ISO 15876, ISO 12230, DIN 16968/DIN 16969 and many other National Standards for PB-1 pipe applications. The grade is typically used for extrusion into pipe and injection molding into fittings for potable hot and cold water distribution applications. Akoalit PB 4237 is available in grey color in pellet form.

Akoalit PB 4237 may not be used in the manufacture of pipe applications intended for sale or shipment to North America, without prior written approval by manufacturer for each specific product and application. Applications: District Heating, Drinking Water Pipe, Fittings, Industrial, Radiator Connections, Underfloor Heating.
