Borealis and Borouge, plastics solutions providers announce the launch of packaging grades called Anteo.
The brand will bring a new family of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) packaging grades for the global packaging market, the company said in a statement.
“Anteo delivers easy process-ability at lower extruder pressure, better sealing integrity and improved puncture resistance in combination with strong optics for enhanced shelf appeal,” the company said. Anteo completes the full solution offer for high performance, multilayer flexible packaging applications using Borealis Borstar® Bimodal Terpolymer (BBT) Technology.
Borouge produces Anteo at the Ruwais plant in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
This is a remarkable achievement that integrates with ADNOC’s vision for the future of petrochemicals industry. We have the production capacity and the supply chain expertise to ensure a smooth launch of Anteo and secure its success,” said Ahmed Omar Abdulla, chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Polymers Company (Borouge).
The reliable supply of Anteo to customers around the world is assured thanks to Borouge’s production, material handling, and global supply chain capabilities, the company said.
Vienna-headquartered Borealis’ proprietary BBT Technology offers exceptional flexibility in polymer design by combining smart catalyst design with a superior, two-reactor system process with two comonomers, the company said.
It is the first time that Borealis and Borouge jointly manufacture a product at one single location and then make it globally available. This endeavour is enabled by the excellent cooperation and technology exchange between both companies. Customers benefit from guaranteed and consistent quality product and the companies’ joint supply chain capabilities across the globe.
