Stelora™ is the outcome of an exclusive collaboration between TOPAS Advanced Polymers and Borealis, combining the benefits of cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) with polypropylene (PP). The brand-new, state-of-the-art ethylene-propylene-norbornene (EPN) material solution is suitable for a wide range of technically advanced applications for which engineering polymers are used today.
Stelora is produced from renewable feedstock, marking a significant step on the path to a circular economy and offering a cost and energy-efficient alternative to replace conventional engineering polymers, while meeting the high temperature requirements necessary for the new generation of energy-saving power semiconductors for invertors.
The first commercial application of Stelora is within a high-heat-resistant capacitor film. The step change in heat resistance capability will support the transition to renewable energy and E-Mobility.
