LyondellBasell launches new family of 5th generation PP catalysts

Jim Seward, LyondellBasell Director of Catalyst and Licensing Business said: "This development aligns with a continued market interest in using existing fifth-generation diether and succinate catalysts for a range of product applications.  For example, there is a market trend to extend the use of diether catalysts, already the established benchmark for the production of polymers used in spun-bond fiber, high melt flow impact copolymers and random copolymer, to also produce BOPP and raffia grades." LyondellBasell produces polyolefin catalysts in Ferrara, Italy, Frankfurt and Ludwigshafen, Germany and Edison, N.J. The Avant catalyst range comprises of the following families: Avant ZN - Ziegler-Natta catalysts for polypropylene Avant Z - Ziegler catalysts for polyethylene Avant C - Chromium catalysts for polyethylene Avant M - Metallocene catalysts for polypropylene
