Petrochemical company Borouge has introduced Anteo, the new family of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) packaging grades in the South-East Asian packaging market.
Conducted jointly with Borealis, the global launch of Anteo was held last month in Austria, the UAE and China.
The new product line uses Borealis borstar bimodal terpolymer (BBT) technology and can be used in multilayer flexible packaging applications.
In addition to offering superior processability, Anteo was stated to exhibit other high-performance attributes, including flexibility, toughness, purity and sealability.
Borouge marketing senior vice-president Michael Pell said: “Borouge is always looking to develop new solutions that create value in the packaging industry.
“Anteo’s processability and sealing performance clearly deliver superior efficiency, reliability, and quality in both film conversion and in the packaging of consumer and industrial goods.
“As a business enabler to our partners, we are excited to bring the Anteo advantage to South-East Asia, and to continue to be a catalyst for innovation in the packaging industry.”
The Anteo product line has been tested by more than 100 Borealis and Borouge customers worldwide and was found to offer easy processability at lower extruder pressure, improves seal integrity and speed, as well as reduces energy consumption and material wastage.
The product was also stated to improve shelf appeal of the respective brands.
Anteo FK1820 and Anteo FK1828 are currently commercially available in Europe, Russia, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
Borouge produces the Anteo grades at its Ruwais plant in the UAE.
