Two new families of single-site catalysts PE from Borealis, based on unimodal and its bimodal Borstar technology, have been designed to create new packaging options for all major segments of the fast growing SSC PE market. Borecene marks the company’s entry into the unimodal SSC LLDPE blown and cast film market. The bimodal SSC BorPlus is said to offer uniquely superior processability.
“By extending the PE product mix with the Borecene and BorPlus families, we are now in a position to offer our customers the opportunity to produce unique packaging solutions made entirely with Borealis products,” says John Thompson, marketing manager, Borealis Film & Fibre. “Enhanced sealing, more efficient processing, excellent mechanical and optical properties mean that our customers can really measure how and where value can be created in their film production and indeed for their end-product user. We are at the beginning of an exciting journey with our customers, who we will help to unleash the full potential of the ‘new’ range.”
Borecene products are available for blown and cast film applications. The bimodal BorPlus products are available for blown film applications. The materials, created through SSC polymerization, are said to exhibit a range of property and processing benefits which include excellent film clarity, and “second-to-none” sealability. In addition, the BorPlus materials are the first SSC LLDPE grades with excellent bubble stability, drawdown, and throughput for blown film applications, the company claims.
Applications include shrink or overwrap films and food packaging for meats, cheeses, liquids, and snack foods; freezer film; stretch and shrink films; and shipping bags, industrial liners and grocery bags.
