Borealis is a leading European plastomers and
elastomers supplier and innovator. Building on
our proprietary Borceed™ technology and
exciting brands such as Queo™, we provide
reliable solutions with added value.
The diverse and varying requirements of the specialty film, moulding and extrusion coating industries require polyethylene (PE) solutions that are able to deliver the highest quality, reliability and versatility. Thanks to the added advantage of supply security and reliability we offer, our partners in industry have come to rely on the real advantages offered by our Stamylex family of polyethylenes for a variety of applications, including surface protection films, tie resin manufacturing, and healthcare.
The Stamylex trade name refers to a family of high quality linear PEs spanning the range from high density polyethylene (HDPE) to very low density polyethylene (VLDPE). Our grade slate includes homopolymers as well as 1-octene, 1-butene and propylene copolymers, manufactured using a high performance Ziegler Natta catalyst in Borealis' versatile Borceed™ polymerisation process. Stamylex polyethylenes exhibit superior mechanical and processing characteristics and have a long-established reputation as specialty polyethylenes of the highest quality and consistency. The flexible manufacturing process results in a broad product range which is used in a variety of specialty film, moulding and extrusion coating applications.
Stamylex blown and cast film grades cover a density range from specialty VLDPE sealing polymers (910 kg/m3) to high stiffness homopolymers (960 kg/m3). Due to the solution process and the characteristics of the octene copolymer, our grades exhibit:
With over two decades of in-house experience, we are a leading European supplier and top innovator when it comes to specialty PE. Building on our proprietary technologies, we offer a broad and highly versatile range of solutions with built-in added value. In line with our stated mission to "Keep Discovering," we continue to improve our range of specialty resins in order to meet the rapidly evolving needs of our partners.
Plastomers markets around the world are exhibiting robust growth. Demand continues to rise for polymer solutions fulfilling sophisticated sealing, flexibility, compatibility and processability requirements. At Borealis Plastomers, we work together with our customers to develop new solutions and expand the wide range of applications that benefit from the unique characteristics of our Queo™ products. Produced using proprietary Borceed™ technology, Queo plastomers and elastomers combine many of the physical properties of a rubber with the processing advantages of a thermoplastic material.
