SURPASS® Polyethylene (PE) Resins

SURPASS PE resins, made with NOVA Chemicals' exclusive Advanced SCLAIRTECH™ process technology, deliver a unique combination of properties not found in traditional polyethylene resins. Processing advantages such as higher outputs, lower extrusion pressure, and decreased power consumption allow companies to increase their processing efficiency. Finished goods made with SURPASS resins can achieve substantial lightweighting; improved sensory attributes; ultra-high barrier protection; superior strength, toughness, or impact properties; and more, as appropriate to the product and application.

The SURPASS resin family includes:

High Density (HDPE)
Medium Density (MDPE)
Linear Low Density (LLDPE) ​​

Markets and applications include:

Rotational Molding
Thin-Wall Injection Molding
Food Packaging
Caps and Closures
Hygiene
Heavy Duty Sack

SCLAIR® Polyethylene (PE) Resins

The SCLAIR® resin product family is comprehensive, offering an extensive variety of characteristics to suit a broad range of applications. Processing characteristics are dominated by their broad molecular weight, resulting in unusually low extrusion forces, excellent environmental stress crack resistance (ESCR), and a higher-than-average degree of shear sensitivity to swell. The versatility of the SCLAIR solution-phase polymerization process allows a wide range of product tailoring, from molecular weight distribution and melt index to density, strength, and stiffness.

The SCLAIR resin family includes:

High Density (HDPE)
Medium Density (MDPE)​
​Linear Low Density (LLDPE)
Very Low Density (VLDPE)​​​​​​

Markets and applications include:
