HPR is a collective term for "modified resins," which are the various ethylene-based copolymer resins produced and sold by Dow-Mitsui Polychemicals that have been chemically modified based on technological capabilities cultivated over many years.
When an ethylene-based copolymer resin is chemically modified, the properties of the resin prior to modification are retained, while the resin gains special functions due to the modification.


Handling precautions

Handling precautions

  • VThe VR and AR series are resins with high moisture absorbency. If residual resin is left in a hopper or bag for an extended period after molding is complete, especially under high humidity, it could cause foaming when next processed due to the absorption of moisture.
    Please store any residual resin sealed in a moisture-proof bag.
  • When processing resins of each series, please observe the maximum processing temperatures listed in the selection guidelines.
  • Please avoid keeping resin in an extruder or die for extended periods, as it could cause problems such as altering the resin.
  • When shutting down a molding machine after molding, thoroughly purge and replace the inside of the molding machine with polyethylene.
