Chemical resistance

EPERAN™-PP and EPERAN™ show little or even no degradation when exposed to various oils and chemicals and have excellent weather and moisture resistance.
 
Kaneka Belgium

Multi-grade moulding

Kaneka has developed a very cost-effective patented technology allowing the moulding of multiple grades in one and the same part, in order to meet specific requirements for the automotive and returnable container businesses.
