A family of high-performance Invision® enhanced polyolefin resins for sheet and profile producers has been introduced by A. Schulman, Inc. Available globally, the product family consists of high melt strength TPO compounds, and durable high-performance olefinic capstock resins. As thermoplastic olefin-based materials, Invision resins provide many benefits in performance, appearance, and processing for sheet and profile extrusion, and thermoforming applications. Furthermore, the resins can be recycled and the regrind incorporated back into the material stream without affecting processing or performance.
Invision high gloss capstock resin is noted for its extreme clarity and durable surface, enabling a "paint-like" surface finish without the risk of chipping or peeling and without the environmental challenges resulting from the painting process. Invision TPO resins offer durability and dimensional stability, making them ideal for demanding body panel applications in the Agriculture, RV, Power Sports, Personal Watercraft, Heavy Truck and Bus, Lawn and Garden, Industrial, Building and Construction, and Automotive industries. Typical applications include exterior body panels and trim components, fenders, door panels, housings and enclosures. These materials are based on patent-pending polyolefin compositions that can be used in monolayer or multilayer coextruded sheet and profile applications. The product family includes:
-- Invision 1040 resin is a high melt strength thermoformable TPO that balances impact resistance and stiffness, enabling processors and end
users to reduce product weight and improve processing efficiency without sacrificing product performance. It can be extruded as a monolayer, or as the substrate of a multilayer sheet or profile structure.
-- Invision 3568 resin is a low-gloss, thermoformable, non-stress whitening olefin capstock material. It readily accepts textures in embossed applications and provides a soft, non-tacky feel.
-- Invision 3566 resin is a high-gloss, thermoformable, non-stress whitening olefin capstock material. Invision color technology,
combined with the high clarity capstock resin, allows the capstock resin to match the appearance of any painted color.
