INEOS Technologies offers an extensive range of catalyst systems for use in the Innovene™ G and Innovene™ S PE processes.The INcat polyethylene catalyst portfolio includes:
- INcat SDX and Novacat Ziegler-Natta catalysts for use in gas phase PE reactors. These deliver a wide range of narrow molecular weight LLDPE and HDPE products suitable for blown and cast film, injection moulding and rotational moulding applications.
- INcat MT Ziegler-Natta catalysts for use in slurry phase PE reactors. These enable the manufacture of a wide range of narrow molecular weight HDPE products for blown and cast film, injection moulding and rotational moulding applications.
- INcat HPLL metallocene catalyst for use in gas phase PE reactors. A proprietary gas phase metallocene catalyst for high performance LLDPE blown and cast film market and related products.
These catalysts are used worldwide in both Innovene™ PE processes and are supplied by INEOS Technologies, ready for use. The catalysts can be injected directly into the Innovene™ PE polymerization reactor and do not need a capital-intensive, pre-polymerization step.
A range of chromium catalysts are also available for use in both the Innovene™ G and Innovene™ S PE processes to manufacture broad molecular weight products for blow moulding, pipe and film applications. The catalysts are supplied directly from INEOS Technologies approved manufacturers and are activated on-site, prior to injection into the polymerization reactor, using proprietary technology.
