Borealis Borecene Compact™ RM8346RC Black Linear Polyethylene for Rotational Molding  (discontinued **)
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyethylene (PE); Medium Density (MDPE); Medium Density Polyethylene (MDPE), Rotational Molded

Material Notes: Borecene Compact RM8346RC is a third generation linear medium density black polyethylene for rotational molding. Borecene RM8346RC is a special grade, which has passed rigorous tests and can be considered as a possible replacement for crosslinkable polyethylene in many applications. The narrow molecular weight imparted through metallocene catalyst technology provides an ideal balance of flow and physical properties. Borecene Compact RM8346RC is a black version of Borecene RM8346RC, suitable for fuel tanks. Borecene Compact RM8346 is delivered as new technology powder.

Borecene Compact RM8346RC contains 1.0% Carbon Black, which is compounded into the polymer. In addition the grade contains an UV stabilizer which gives excellent UV-stability. The polymer contains long-term antioxidant.
