Borouge at Arabplast 2015: Showcased New PE-based Solutions for Pipe Producers

Published on 2015-01-15. Author : SpecialChem

Borouge, among the leading providers of innovative, value creating plastics solutions, showcased new opportunities for pipe producers at Arabplast 2015, one of the largest plastics industry trade shows in MENA. Borouge is also Principal Sponsor of the trade show, held at Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre from 10-13 January 2015.

Tomorrow's infrastructure solutions

“We’re always looking towards the future,” said Robin Bresser, Vice President Marketing Centre Pipe, Borouge. “For over a decade, Borouge has delivered a consistent, high quality range of product solutions for the pipe industry and now we’re showcasing the latest additions to our portfolio. Our goal is to make a sustainable contribution and deliver a competitive edge to pipe producers and thereby deliver lasting value to the infrastructure owners and the communities they serve.”

Borouge is innovative with new products, and its new BorSafeTM precompounded yellow PE80 and orange PE100 grades with the highest level of durability for gas pipes are the best examples of this innovation. These colored gas pipes provide superior crack growth resistance, highest network safety, and a low whole life cost to infrastructure owners. Arabplast is the ideal platform to engage the region’s industry and to discuss latest and future developments.

Pressure pipe solution for natural gas and gas distribution applications

Safety is at the core of Borouge’s solutions for the gas industry. The introduction of BorSafe® ME3441 and BorSafe® HE3492-LS-H reflects the importance of crack resistance in gas applications. These precompounded PE80 and PE100 grades are pigmented at production, ensuring a consistent pipe solution that delivers long term stability and safety, and lasting value to the infrastructure owners.

Domestic and industrial pipe solution for hot and cold water applications

Delivering clean water to cities and to where residents live, work and play, requires an end-to-end solution. The introduction of RA140E represents the critical “last mile” of this solution, delivering benefits that end users can trust: low incidence on taste and odor, and long service life. This PP-R resin also benefits pipe producers and installers with enhanced consistency and ease of installation.

Tailor-made solution for durable drip irrigation systems

The introduction of Aquility™ HE3408 complements Borouge’s recently introduced LE3406 to support the growth of modern drip irrigation systems, which reduce water usage while increasing crop yields – two crucial factors in addressing today's global challenge of water shortage and rising food demand. Both ready-made black PE compounds reflect Borouge's commitment to support the pipe industry in the Middle East & Africa with durable, tailor-made material solutions that make a positive contribution to their challenges.
