Univation launches LDPE and EVA production technology

Univation Technologies, LLC announces the launch of its latest licensed technology platform – a tubular high pressure PE process enabling production of both low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and ethylene-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 ethylene-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 Process 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.

Dow Inc. is a leader in LDPE resin production and technology development with a heritage in the field covering more than 80 years of innovation. Dow holds the position as the #1 LDPE producer globally with over 2.6 million metric tons per annum of LDPE capacity.

Nathan J. Wiker, president of Univation Technologies, commented, "Building upon Dow's and Univation's collective 125+ years' experience in both polyethylene technology development and technology transfer excellence, Univation is pleased to offer licensees a proven, state-of-the-art tubular high pressure PE manufacturing platform and associated portfolio of well-recognized LDPE and EVA resin products." Nathan continued, "Through our UNIGILITY™ Tubular High Pressure PE Process Technology platform, Univation provides a robust licensed technology offering which includes process design, operational know-how, a full portfolio of proven LDPE and EVA resin products, and complete licensing services and technical support before, during and after the plant start-up. We look forward to engaging with potential customers on the full range of benefits of our licensed UNIGILITY™ Tubular High Pressure PE Process Technology and associated LDPE and EVA product offerings."
