Anteo aims to deliver easy processability at lower extruder pressure, better sealing integrity and improved puncture resistance in combination with strong optics for enhanced shelf appeal.

Using Borealis Borstar Bimodal Terpolymer (BBT) Technology, Anteo aims to provide high performance and multilayer flexible packaging applications.

Borouge produces Anteo at the Ruwais plant in the UAE.

The global launch of Anteo is taking place simultaneously at three different geographic locations such as in Austria’s Linz, in Abu Dhabi and in Shanghai, China.

The aim is to provide advanced and innovative technologies to big international marketplaces with an increasing base of current and potential customers.

As an important ingredient for higher performance and more sustainable multilayer applications, Anteo has been tested and confirmed by more than 100 Borealis and Borouge customers around the globe.

Alfred Stern, executive vice president at Borealis for polyolefins and innovation and technology, said that the company’s proprietary Borstar technology and catalyst design focus on providing a reliable solution to the polyolefins industry.

“We have the production capacity and the supply chain expertise to ensure a smooth launch of Anteo and secure its success,” according to Ahmed Omar Abdulla, CEO of Borouge. “Moreover, we are delivering new high-value industrial applications for Anteo including the stretch hood and heavy duty shipping sack segments,” he added.

Wim Roels, CEO of Borouge Pte Ltd, noted, “In essence, the Anteo advantage means even more than improved sealing speed and processing. It also means more reliability, quality and productivity. We are excited to share Anteo with the market, and look forward to delivering this new ingredient for complete success.”
