Transport Packaging

Borealis technologies enable transport packaging solutions that meet key market demands.

Durable solutions across applications

Returnable Transport Packaging (RTP) involves packaging solutions used for the transport of goods that are designed for reuse within a supply chain. Typical RTP items include bins, boxes, trays, pallets, crates and more. Widespread industry acceptance of RTP solutions has spread from the automotive to other sectors, including food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics and more. For both manufacturers and businesses, switching from traditional packaging forms to RTP can help achieve cost savings. What is more, using RTP satisfies demand for increased environmental sustainability, as reusable solutions mean less waste. Finally, RTP solutions are often easier and safer to handle in transit and storage, thus contributing to overall employee safety.

Providing durability for RTP

Borealis supplies a range of polypropylene (PP) grades for injection moulding (IM) techniques which fulfil the most important criterion for RTP: durability. Plastic materials need to be able to withstand handling and stacking during transportation and storage. On the shelf, they must be resistant to wear and tear and retain their visual appeal when used as point-of-sale displays. Thanks to our proprietary Borstar® technology and Borstar® Nucleation Technology (BNT), we have optimised our grades to meet such market demands.

Optimised results thanks to Borstar® Nucleation Technology

Grades manufactured with BNT exhibit a highly uniform crystalline structure during cooling, rapid solidification for earlier demoulding, and higher output in the IM process. RTP items manufactured using BNT offer the following advantages for the value chain:

Production output increase through reduced cooling time and high flowability
Good balance in mechanical properties (stiffness/impact)
Limited impact of colouring on dimensional stability
Superior stackability through high stiffness and excellent creep properties
Very good impact resistance translates into more durability during transportation and storage

Borstar® Nucleation Technology

Valued-added innovations in RTP

For over 50 years, Borealis has been a leading supplier of advanced polyolefin plastics for advanced packaging and fibre solutions. Our unique Borstar® and BNT technologies support a wide range of polyolefin applications in transport packaging. With our optimised grades for the packaging industry, we continue to supply cost efficient, durable and environmentally sustainable materials to our value chain partners.
