GEON® Polyolefin Formulations

If traditional grades of polypropylene and polyethylene do not meet the requirements of your application, but you do not wish to use highly engineered or custom materials, then GEON products may be just what you need. The GEON family of polypropylene and polyethylene based products offers a complete line of cost-effective, performance-driven material options. Standard grades are formulated with calcium carbonate, glass and talc to provide a desired balance of properties, including stiffness, durability, impact resistance and heat resistance.
