High crystallinity polypropylene, a thermoplastic resin produced from the polymerization of propylene, has several end-use applications, such as thermoforming, cast film, BOPP, TWIM containers and general injection molding.
Polypropylene random copolymers are thermoplastic resins produced through the polymerization of propylene, with ethylene or butene bonds introduced in the polymer chain. The resins provide a broad range of characteristics, and are used in a wide range of applications.
Typical customer applications include: – High clarity/transparency packaging – Injection molding – Blow molding – Cast, BOPP and blown film – Pipe – Thermoforming
Polypropylene random copolymers provide numerous benefits, including: – Very good transparency and gloss – Broad range of melting point and seal initiation temperature (SIT) – Very good aesthetic characteristics – The best radiation resistance amongst Polypropylene resin types
Polypropylene homopolymers are thermoplastic resins produced through the polymerization of propylene with Ziegler-Natta catalysts.
The homopolymers can be used in different processing technologies, such as injection molding, blow molding, film, fiber, sheet extrusion and thermoforming.
LyondellBasell offers a wide range of homopolymers providing a broad set of properties to meet the market needs in packaging, household goods, textiles, film, healthcare, and, pipe as well as applications in the automotive and electrical industries.

LyondellBasell offers solutions for many specialty engineering applications such as pipe, medical, automotive, surge tank, building and construction, caps and closures and many others which require improved polypropylene performance.
The most typically recognized enhanced properties for specialty products are high clarity, superior impact resistance at lower temperatures, excellent seal strength and aesthetics, as well as superior haptics, flexibility, toughness and durability.
Adflex, Adstif, Adsyl, Clyrell, Hifax, Hiflex, Hostalen, Profax, and Softell are the trade names that identify LyondellBasell Specialty products.
Polypropylene compounds are thermoplastic resins produced using a blend of one or more base polyolefins with various components such as impact modifiers, fillers and reinforcements, pigments and additives. These Polypropylene Compounds offer a broad range of characteristics and are used in a wide variety of customer applications for automotive, electrical appliances, building and construction and furniture components.
The polypropylene impact copolymers are thermoplastic resins produced through the polymerization of propylene and ethylene by using Ziegler Natta catalysts. Their synthesis consists of a heterophasic amorphous structure inside a semi-crystalline PP homopolymer matrix.
The impact copolymers can be transformed by different processing technologies like injection molding, blow molding, film, fiber, sheet extrusion and thermoforming.
Due to their broad range of properties, impact copolymers from LyondellBasell are used in packaging, houseware, film, and pipe applications, as well as in the automotive and electrical segments.
