Polypropylene for Face Mask Creation

In order to support the sustained high need for face masks and their local production in Europe, LyondellBasell has commercialized a new innovative polypropylene MFR 1500 grade, Moplen HP560Z. The very high fluidity of this grade allows the creation of face masks with the best filtration level providing the highest protection efficiency possible.

An additional advantage of the Moplen HP560Z grade is that it has been tailored specifically for the newest small-scale melt-blown non-woven machines, which are now widely used for face mask production in Europe.

LyondellBasell is known for finding solutions to challenges it faces, and the rapid development of Moplen HP560Z is evidence of our ability to meet our customer’s needs in the European market,” says Jochem Meijknecht, Marketing Manager at LyondellBasell. “It is exciting to be the first company to offer a MFR 1500 grade made in Europe.”
