MDO Converter
Technology

When used with MDO converting technology, our BorLite and BorShape solutions offer excellent packaging performance and substantial economic benefits for key value chain partners.

Setting new standards in MDO performance 

Enhanced packaging performance, improved cost and production efficiencies and increasingly, sustainability are key drivers in the advanced packaging film industry. Thanks to our proprietary technologies and robust cooperation with partners along the value chain we are able to set new standards when it comes to machine direction orientation (MDO) performance.

Added value and more environmentally-friendly packaging thanks to Borstar®

Borealis recently launched the BorLite™ and BorShape™ family of materials based on our unique Borstar® technology. These additions bring step-change innovation to advanced flexible packaging film solutions. When used with MDO converting technology, our BorLite and BorShape solutions offer excellent packaging performance and substantial economic benefits for key value chain partners, from converters to brand owners and ultimately end users:

  • New packaging performance levels at reduced packaging weight, fostering better sustainability and greener packaging
  • Step-change downgauging
  • Value generation across the entire value chain

What is more: our MDO solutions set new standards in MDO film performance, achieving excellent tear resistance in MD as well as a very high toughness.

These features, complemented by the recognised performance of the MDO technology, contribute to the films' very high MD tensile strength, high stiffness levels, transparency and gloss.

One of the areas in which our BorLite and BorShape solutions meet and even exceed current market standards is in shipping sacks, where we offer advantages such as:

  • Step-change downgauging, from 130 μm to 80 μm, i.e. 38% thickness reduction
  • Same or higher performance at the key parameters
  • High load security during transport and storage
  • Reduction of per unit bag cost
  • Highly positive environmental impact: 130 tonnes of CO2 emission reduction per kilotonne of packed goods

Other areas of application include twist wraps, magazine wraps, lamination films, compression packaging, labels and more.

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: from sustainability to cost competitiveness, from film performance to packaging integrity.
