Borouge ME3440 (PE80) is a black, bimodal medium density polyethylene. It uses the advanced Borstar® production technology and achieves an optimal balance between flexibility and strength. Well-dispersed carbon black has excellent UV resistance. Optimized stabilization system ensures long-term stability.

Applications of Borouge ME3440 (PE80)

MDPE ME3440 (PE80) is recommended for pressure pipe systems in drinking water, natural gas, pressure sewage treatment, lining, sea outlet and industrial applications. Flexibility and rollability are very important in these areas. It also shows excellent resistance to fast crack propagation and slow crack growth.

Due to the bimodal molecular weight distribution structure, Borouge ME3440 resin has excellent extrudability compared to traditional PE80 products.
