Anteo production at Borealis Innovation Headquarters' seven layer film machine

Borealis and Borouge, leading providers of innovative, value-creating plastics solutions, announce the launch of Anteo™, a new family of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) packaging grades for the global packaging market.

According to Borealis, Anteo delivers easy processability at lower extruder pressure, better sealing integrity and improved puncture resistance in combination with strong optics for enhanced shelf appeal. Boasting a unique combination of end-use properties for high-performance film applications, Anteo completes the full solution offer for high performance, multilayer flexible packaging applications using Borealis Borstar® Bimodal Terpolymer (BBT) Technology.

Borouge produces Anteo at the Ruwais plant in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The reliable supply of Anteo to customers around the world is assured thanks to Borouge's production, material handling, and global supply chain capabilities.

The global launch of Anteo is taking place simultaneously at three different geographic locations. The story of Anteo is highlighting the key aspects of the new technology and product, reflecting its uniqueness and innovative elements: the launch of Borealis BBT Technology at the company's Innovation Headquarters in Linz, Austria highlights the importance of the advanced and innovative technologies used to create the new product. Meanwhile, the launch of Anteo in Abu Dhabi, UAE, focuses on the significance of Borouge's production facilities where the product is manufactured and exported from Abu Dhabi to both companies' customers all over the world, who benefit from Borouge's robust supply chain network. In Shanghai, China, the focus is on the development opportunities made available to provide Anteo product in such a huge market with an increasing base of current and potential customers.

Success builds on Borstar Bimodal Terpolymer Technology

According to Borealis, its proprietary BBT Technology offers exceptional flexibility in polymer design by combining smart catalyst design with a superior, two-reactor system process with two comonomers. The result: unique polyethylene resins with superior processability.

Three main features give the BBT Technology the competitive edge:

  • Bimodality in molecular weight
  • Bimodality in density
  • Tailored comonomer incorporation

Anteo: the new ingredient for flexible packaging

As the key ingredient for higher performance and more sustainable multilayer applications, Anteo opens up a range of interesting application opportunities thanks to its unique combination of end-use properties. Having been tested and confirmed by over 100 Borealis and Borouge customers around the globe, the proven benefits of Anteo span the entire value chain:

  • Unparalleled processability: easy processability at lower extruder pressure (over 15% less than conventional metallocene LLDPE sealants), with the derived benefit of lower energy consumption.
  • Seal integrity and sealing speed: high speeds can be achieved when used as sealing material in laminated/non-laminated film, resulting in lower energy consumption and less material waste.
  • A step change in puncture resistance: an important contribution to reducing spoilage and/or potential damage to pack contents.
  • Pleasing optics for enhanced shelf appeal.

The first grades in the growing Anteo product family, Anteo™ FK1820 and Anteo™ FK1828, are commercially available in Europe, the Middle East, Russia, Africa and Asia as of the global launch on 25 October 2017.
