Advanced SCLAIRTECH™ Technology
NOVA Chemicals has developed a dual-reactor solution polyethylene technology, known as Advanced SCLAIRTECH Technology. This technology employs advanced reactor engineering and catalyst chemistry, and delivers products with tailored molecular architecture and performance.
With this dual-reactor solution technology we use both proprietary single-site (SSC) or Ziegler-Natta (ZN) catalysts in combination with octene-1 comonomer, producing products branded as SURPASS® (SSC resins) and as SCLAIR® (ZN resins).
Advanced SCLAIRTECH Technology can deliver both wide Density ranges (0.905 – 0.967 g/cm3) and wide Melt Index ranges (0.40 to 150 g/10 min). Additionally, the dual reactor process allows for tailored molecular weight distributions – from very narrow to broad.
