SCLAIRTECH technology offers polyethylene producers a unique and flexible way to grow with their emerging market needs. The versatile solution process technology allows resin manufacturers to participate in all market segments by economically producing, on a single line, LLDPE and HDPE grades across a very wide range of melt indices, by utilizing butene or octene comonomer. Resins can also be designed with a molecular weight distribution from narrow to broad, according to the needs of the processor and the application. The unique tailoring capability of the technology provides the ability to produce high performance resins to meet the customer needs in diverse market segments.
NOVA Chemicals has also developed its own proprietary Ziegler-Natta and single site catalysts, which are used for Advanced SCLAIRTECH™ technology. The resins made with these catalysts offer producers an opportunity to deliver the best performance in the marketplace.
