Univation launches new PE process to produce LDPE and EVA resins

Univation Technologies announced the launch of its latest licensed technology platform – a tubular high-pressure PE process enabling production of both low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and ethyl-vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymer resins which is offered under the brand name UNIGILITY™ Tubular High Pressure PE Process Technology.

Based on Dow’s well-proven tubular high pressure PE manufacturing platform, Univation’s licensed UNIGILITY™ Tubular High Pressure PE Process Technology offers a broad product mix with first quartile operating performance. Safe and reliable operations are achieved through automated plant start-ups and shutdowns, and low operating costs are enabled through a low energy consumption and efficient utility usage plant design.

UNIGILITY™ High Pressure PE Process Technology also delivers high-performance product capability to satisfy a broad array of key LDPE end-use products. Targeted applications include both high-volume and specialty market segments covering general purpose films, agricultural films, shrink films, heavy duty shipping sacks, as well as extrusion coating and lamination applications.

Additionally, Univation’s UNIGILITY™ Tubular High Pressure PE Process Technology allows licensees to participate in key ethyl-vinyl acetate (EVA) end-use applications in industrial and food packaging market segments including greenhouse films, footwear components, flexible hosing, photovoltaics, cheese and fresh meat barrier packaging, and cereal liners. Univation’s licensed EVA product offering delivers key performance attributes providing low sealing temperatures, increased flexibility and puncture/impact resistance, improved optics as well as excellent adhesion to a wide array of substrates.

Univation Technologies, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, is a leading global polyethylene (PE) technology licensor with over 55 years of continuous PE licensing experience focused on the linear low-density PE (LLDPE) and high-density PE (HDPE) market segments. Univation offers its world-renowned UNIPOL™ PE Process platform and Univation’s portfolio of polyethylene polymerization catalysts allowing its UNIPOL™ PE Licensees to access a broad range of high-volume and specialty polyethylene applications covering unimodal HDPE, bimodal HDPE, conventional LLDPE, and metallocene PE market segments.
