In the 3rd quarter, SOCAR Polymer has introduced 4 new PP-grades into production.
The HB4540MO and HB6540MO grades of homopolymers with very high rigidity and high melt flow, as well as the CB4848MO and CB6448MO grades of heterophasic copolymers (HECO) have been newly added to the company’s product portfolio. With high processing speed and good antistatic properties, the HECO grades are designed for rigid packaging.
The new homopolymers are particularly well suited for polystyrene replacement in food packaging industry. These grades are intended for high-speed thin-wall injection molding and standard injection molding of rigid articles.
The new polypropylene grades will first be exported to the CIS market.
