Why Borlink?

As industry leaders, Borealis and Borouge have introduced significant technological advances, as well as established cutting-edge quality and purity standards. Key innovation advances of Borlink include a tailor-made high pressure (HP) process for the production of high purity low density polyethylene (LDPE) base polymers with superior electrical properties and the introduction of a closed or controlled loop (from monomer to final packaging) which avoids contamination and ensures homogenous and super clean, high quality compounds.

Applying these technologies enables Borealis and Borouge to deliver a wide range of material solutions such as their unique cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) for high productivity, as well as the first globally available solutions for high voltage direct current (HVDC) XLPE cable applications.

Benefiting from Borlink technology, cables in use for more than 30 years still perform to today's standards and prove the reliability of these solutions. Additionally, at the end of their useful life, these cables can be fully recycled in combination with standard PE for a fully sustainable multi-generation life cycle.
