Our unique plastomers brand Queo™ delivers a range of unique performance attributes including superior sealing, flexibility, compatibility and processability.
Queo plastomers are a range of low-density ethylene copolymers made possible by combining metallocene catalyst technology with the Borceed™ solution polymerisation process. The comonomer used by Borealis plastomers is octene. As the name implies, plastomers bridge the gap between plastics and elastomers. They exhibit many of the physical properties of a rubber and combine this with the processing advantages of a thermoplastic.

Our metallocene catalyst technology affords a highly efficient and consistent incorporation of octene comonomer into a polyethylene backbone. This results in low density and ensures precisely defined polymers with a range of unique performance attributes:
Queo plastomers add value in a wide range of film applications, many of which have been demonstrated to exceed the requirements of the plastomer attributes. As a result, Queo plastomers are extensively used as a blend partner, offering the opportunity to tailor performance to the cost balance of finished articles.
