A patented Borealis innovation, CT7200 is a major technological breakthrough that ensures the sustainable and long-term supply of material for the extrusion coating industry.

As a solution developed by Borealis for extrusion coating products, CT7200 will help the industry address the issue of end-of-life autoclave plants. With the foreseen and expected closure of several autoclave plants in the market in the coming years, the extrusion coating industry needs a new production platform to produce products that match the performance and quality of today's autoclave LDPE products. CT7200 represents exactly this continued high quality and performance while at the same time ensuring the reliable and sustainable source of supply essential to future growth of the industry. The new Borealis high pressure tubular platform enables Borealis and its joint venture Borouge to secure supply for the global extrusion coating market in full compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements.

Commercial launch of CT7200 during K Fair 2013
An LDPE produced on a high-pressure tubular reactor, the new CT7200 shares the high-quality organoleptics of current materials yet has numerous other advantages:

• High zero shear viscosity contributes to improved sealing performance;
• Improved flowability enhances the adhesion to various substrates, even at lower processing temperatures;
• Reduced energy consumption (motor load) at the same output rates, enabled by high shear thinning, results in improved sustainability.

Good optical properties and low gel level further broaden the possibilities to use this product in various flexible packaging applications. CT7200 is ideally suited for applications involving high-volume extrusion coating of boards and papers, liquid packaging, extrusion coating and lamination of different substrates and co-extrusion in multi-structures.

Developed on Borealis' own pilot line, CT7200 was extensively screened and tested in collaboration with key industry partners on both laboratory and industrial scales. "The launch of CT7200 is another example of how Borealis and its partners can all benefit from working together to find new solutions to industry challenges," says Russell Tew, Borealis Advanced Packaging & Fibre Marketing Manager. “Given that the commercial launch of CT7200 takes place at the time of the K Fair, we would welcome the opportunity to meet in Düsseldorf with converters and other industry partners interested in discovering firsthand the benefits of CT7200 and other Borealis polyethylene innovations currently in the pipeline."

Learn more about CT7200 at the Borealis stand at the K Fair 2013 trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, Hall 6, Stand A43, from October 16-23, 2013.
