TECAFINE PMP natural

PMP unfilled

This unmodified polymethylpentene (PMP) belongs to the polyolefine family, and offers translucense, and good UV resistance. Ensinger's TECAFINE PMP combines very good electrical insulation with low weight. TECAFINE PMP is among the lowest density of all plastics.
