Thermoforming

Borealis offers a broad product portfolio of homopolymers, heterophasic and random copolymers that can be used in a variety of applications.

A product portfolio for a growing industry

The thermoforming industry continues to show steady growth. Around 90% of the total market in thermoformed products is made up by rigid packaging forms for food, including cups and trays for fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, meat and fish products, and the increasingly popular ready-to-eat convenience items. Packaging techniques such as modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) help lock in freshness and extend shelf life. Microwavable trays make life more convenient for today's consumers.

Uniquely comprehensive product portfolio

Borealis offers a broad product portfolio of homopolymers, heterophasic and random copolymers that can be used in a variety of applications.

  • Homopolymers offering good stiffness and clarity together with excellent thermoforming behaviour fitting for a wide range of food packaging applications, trays, lids and pots
  • Borealis BC918CF, a heterophasic copolymer with good transparency and  stiffness/impact balance  especially  appropriate for low temperature applications such as deep freeze packaging
  • Random copolymers with excellent clarity and gloss, calenderable and suitable for a variety of food packaging applications

Addressing the thermoforming industry challenges

Our full range of PP products for thermoforming offers advantages such as product consistency, a good balance of mechanical properties in terms of stiffness/impact and excellent processing behaviour in terms of extrusion/thermoformability which enables lightweighting along with even thickness distribution.

By using our thermoforming solutions, our industry partners are better able to address sustainability needs not only by the downgauging and lightweighting potential offered by our solutions, but also by substituting other rigid packaging materials by thermoforming.
