Innovative Polymers for Everyday Use
April 10, 2015
Very few people know that Total is behind the production of everyday items like bottles, plastic films and caps.
And even fewer are aware that these cutting-edge products owe their properties — such as lightness, thinness and resistance — to Total’s high-performance polymers, which took years of R&D to perfect. Let’s take a look at Supertough, a polymer resin used to make plastic film that’s just as strong as existing products but 25% thinner, and Excell Cap, a compound that allows manufacturers to produce caps with significantly less raw material.
