As the major player in the extrusion coating market, liquid packaging encompasses applications used for short and long shelf life products, dairy as well as non-dairy. Design, flexibility, look and feel, printability (directly on the application versus labelling) and sustainability must all be taken in to account when packaging liquids. For manufacturers, this means ensuring safety and security of supply as well as growing the market to encompass new areas of development via innovation.
As a reliable partner providing high quality materials with ensured quality consistency, we help our customers grow in their current markets and enter into new markets. Our successful customer collaborations have yielded such innovations as our recently launched CT7200 – a LDPE homopolymer produced with high pressure tubular technology. Our speciality coating grades enable our customers to gain in the long-term by achieving technical excellence, e.g. improved functionality and sterilisation options. At the same time, improving sustainability is essential in order to offer more environmentally-friendly options for board and paper coatings.
An LDPE produced on a high-pressure tubular reactor, CT7200 is a Borealis solution developed for extrusion coating products that will help the industry address the issue of the pending closure of autoclave plants. Our new high pressure tubular platform enables us to secure supply for the global extrusion coating market in full compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements. CT7200 shares the high-quality organoleptics of currently available materials yet has numerous other advantages:
CT7200 is ideally suited for applications involving high-volume extrusion coating of boards and papers, liquid packaging, extrusion coating and lamination of different substrates and co-extrusion in multi-structures.
Our HDPE grades offer the following property improvements compared to LDPE:
Our specialty PP grades feature:
We have been a leading supplier of superior polyolefin plastics for advanced packaging and fibre solutions for over 50 years with a proven track record. Our Borealis proprietary technologies ensure the long-term supply of high-quality material for the extrusion coating industry locally as well as globally through our joint venture Borouge. Our deep application expertise and broad product mix enable us to develop the best products to address our customers' specific needs. We create and optimise solutions on our own pilot line, even offering a full Borealis solution, in order to provide our customer with the confidence that our knowledge and expertise will benefit them in the short- and long-term.
