Enhanced performance and cost savings solution for manufacturers presented by Oman Oil and Orpic Group’s Polymer Marketing at Chinaplas Hall 10.3, Booth No. C25 Back to News Page

Oman Oil and Orpic Group’s Polymer Marketing division presents solutions with enhanced performance and cost savings opportunities for manufacturers with Luban HP1102LC (high tenacity raffia) and Luban HP5101LC (high tenacity fiber) as part of its customer service campaign to provide value adding solutions at CHINAPLAS 2019, the 33rd International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries taking place on 21-24 May in Guangzhou. Building on the current Novolene technology, and upcoming Spheriphol and Univation techonologies, the group will provide additional innovative value added solutions to address global challenges such as food preservation, mobility, infrastructure and construction and healthcare.

Luban HP1102LC increased tape tenacity allows manufacturers to reduce weight per bag, without sacrificing strength. Typical strength of the standard Raffia application varies from 3 to 5 g/den and an elongation at break of 25%. The newly developed Luban HP1102LC provides superior values, with tenacity values of up to 7 g/den and elongation at break values higher than 35% can be achieved. Its unique characteristics provide the best results even at the highest output rates and production speeds reaching up to 550 meters per minute (MPM). All of these are achieved without compromising tape characteristics, thereby providing overall operational and production costs benefits as consequence of reduced energy consumptions from smooth processability at lower parameters and reduced transport costs from producing lighter weight bags.

Luban HP5101LC is specifically designed to produce high tenacity fibers for demanding application like geo-membranes where high-performance staple fibers providing high strength and elongation is key. Because of its narrow molecular weight distribution, excellent product consistency and good tear resistance are ensured, offering converters with cost savings opportunities by maximizing machine efficiency from higher speed processing without compromising unique properties.

These products are showcased along with a broad range of other current and future solutions that meet present demands in fiber & filaments, Infrastructure & Construction, healthcare, compounding, flexible packaging, as well as rigid packaging. In support of China’s economic prosperity, innovation, sustainability and vitality which were highlighted in various key strategies by the Chinese government including the 13th Five-Year Plan, the Polymer Marketing division is keen to provide customized solutions inspired by customers’ needs. Polymer Marketing scientist and technical specialists welcome customers at Chinaplas to discuss their existing needs and problems so that new product development opportunities can be explored through R&D. New product applications are developed between 6 months to 3 years encompassing research, market studies, formulas and recipes creation, trial and approval. Products undergo rigorous quality assurance process before they are tested by customers leading to the commercial launch.
