||With the brand name Terralene® FKuR offers biobased polyethylene compounds made using Braskem's Green PE. When compared to conventional polyethylene (PE), the main difference is that the ethanol used for Green PE is not produced using crude oil, but instead is derived from sugarcane. Therefore each ton of Green PE captures up to 2.5 tons of CO2 thus helping to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions. As Terralene® offers the same characteristics and processability as fossil polyethylene it is a drop-in replacement and can be run on conventional PE production equipment. This allows Terralene® to help you meet your sustainability goals affordably. Furthermore, Terralene® is 100% recyclable using standard Polyethylene recycling streams. With its unique technology FKuR increases the range of applications for Green PE particularly for injection moulded components and film.
Terralene® - for Flexible Applications and Extrusion Coating
Green LLDPE and HDPE can have a limited range of applications. Terralene® can provide a perfect answer as these grades produce high quality films with a well-designed and full additive package. Terralene® is FKuR’s solution to complete their current Green PE portfolio achieving LDPE like properties and behaviour. Due to the excellent homogeneity and blend of polymers, Terralene® provides simple gel-free production. For extrusion coating, Terralene® has a low neck-in with a good draw down ratio.
Terralene® - for Injection Molding
With good flow properties and melt strength, Terralene® provides the desirable characteristics required for the moulding of complex structures. The performance of Green PE is often limited to pure HDPE applications, however Terralene® extends the range of applications and is FKuR’s solution for optimizing the processing and product performance while still catering to your individual requirements.TERRALENE® HD 3505 is predominantly composed of renewable resource raw materials. Especially designed for injection moulding applications, this high rigidity grade is intended for thick-walled parts such as caps & closures, household articles as well as all kinds of boxes and containers. Furthermore TERRALENE® HD 3505 can be easily printed as well as coloured using conventional polyethylene-based masterbatches. Information Provided by FKuR Kunststoff GmbH
