Upping the metallocene range

Using its proprietary single-site technology, Total Petrochemicals has introduced a new generation of metallocene PE and PP grades.

The Lumicene range, which includes PE resins for film, rotational/blow moulding, artificial grass and caps and closures, as well as PP grades for fibres, film, injection moulding and medical applications, boasts a host of benefits. These include improved cleanliness, gloss and transparency, better gas barrier and chemical resistance, improved processing and mechanical properties.

“Lumicene will allow our customers to develop significantly improved products in their own markets,” said Carl Van Camp, Senior Vice-President Polyolefins. “This combination of metallocene catalysts and production and process know-how results in a dramatic improvement in appearance, mechanical and environmental benefits, which allows the entire chain to be more competitive and to offer added value solutions.”
