BorShape offers high packaging rigidity for enhanced end-user feeling and improved packaging integrity – all without compromising operational performance.

Outstanding processability and performance 

The film packaging industry is currently driven by three important trends: cost competitiveness, enhanced packaging performance, and sustainability. BorShape™ is a revolutionary new generation of materials created to deliver on all three objectives, and is especially suited to meet the fundamental challenges in sustainability: downgauging and lightweighting.


Tackling multiple packaging challenges with one comprehensive solution

Based on our proprietary bimodal Borstar® technology, BorShape offers high packaging rigidity for enhanced end-user feeling and improved packaging integrity – all without compromising operational performance. What is more, BorShape delivers outstanding processability at the converter, allowing for an output 20% higher than other linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and/or metallocene linear low density (mLLDPE) materials.

To meet the challenges of the flexible packaging industry, the BorShape product family has been designed to become the benchmark in the polyolefin film market when it comes to unparalleled performance in the most demanding film properties:

  • Excellent stiffness-toughness balance offers a significant downgauging potential of more than 30%
  • High stiffness for high packaging rigidity and efficient film converting operations allows for superior stand-up ability and enhanced end-user feeling
  • High toughness and superior seal strength results in excellent packaging integrity and fewer default packages
  • Good hot tack performance in combination with mLLDPE/plastomer skin solution for high packaging speed improves operational performance

BorShape supports sustainability within the film packaging industry in a significant way, enabling more environmentally friendly developments and, as a consequence, less packaging waste. When combined with BorShape's optimum processing behaviour, this yields the complementary advantages of lower energy usage during processing and transportation as well as environment-related benefits.

Driving innovation in advanced packaging solutions

We have been a leading supplier of superior polyolefin plastics for advanced packaging and fibre solutions for over 50 years. Our unique Borstar® technology supports a broad field of applications in the manufacture of film, fibre, coating and thermoforming products. Thanks to solid partnerships and long-term cooperation with leading machine manufacturers, we can continue to develop revolutionary plastics solutions that inspire the applications of tomorrow while at the same time addressing the challenges of today. The performance features and unique property profile of our BorShape family translate into benefits along the whole value chain: from film converters to packers, from brand owners to end users.
