From production to distribution to point of sale, transporting and storing consumer products without breakage presents challenges for brands and retailers. With traditional polymers, exposure to extreme heat or cold can cause packaging to crack or break – resulting in waste and customer disappointment.
DuraTemp™ polypropylene is a clear specialty resin designed for impact resistance in heat as well as freezer and refrigerator temperatures. Unlike other clear polypropylenes, DuraTemp™ grades are tested to withstand drops of up to 7 feet in temperatures as low as -20 C. That means you can reduce breakage during shipping and eliminate unnecessary packing materials. Its combination of clear, lightweight and impact-resistant properties stand apart from other polymers.
Our world-scale facility in Longview, Texas, is solely dedicated to polypropylene production and new product development. INVISTA includes options for all sterilization methods and high-specification requirements in the medical field.
We produce more than 800 million pounds of polypropylene a year, giving you access to reliable long-term supply. Located 200 miles inland from the Gulf Coast, we are in a better position to continue operating without interruption when weather affects supply chains along the coast.
Our focus on long-term stewardship offers many reasons to make INVISTA your preferred polypropylene partner.
Polypropylene is more recyclable than polyethylene or polystyrene. The result is less polypropylene-based plastic in landfills in areas where recycling is available.
Our specialized polypropylenes open the door to new possibilities for the future of packaging. The impact resistance of DuraTemp™ polypropylene reduces the need for excess packing materials. These are only the beginning of more than 100 different options available at INVISTA.
Health and Safety
Awards and recognition for our facility in Longview, Texas, including VPP Star certification, demonstrate our promise to protect the safety of employees, the community and the environment while managing supply chains responsibly.
Polypropylene Helps You Do More with Less
Lower specific gravity (density) = more parts per kg and less kg per part.
Customizing your order at INVISTA includes choosing the product quantity and distribution methods that are sized for you. We are equipped to accommodate bulk requests but also offer the flexibility to fill smaller amounts, so you only have to purchase what you need.
