A portfolio of latest sustainable and value-added polyolefin grades for utilities and construction industry were showcased by Borouge, a leading petrochemical company that provides innovative plastics solutions, at the Big 5, an international building and construction tradeshow, being held in Dubai from 21-24 November 2016.

"Big 5 tradeshow provides Borouge with a new opportunity to demonstrate our differentiated range of polyethylene and polypropylene products used to manufacture water, gas and heating piping systems for various domestic and industrial infrastructure projects,” said Hazeem Sultan Al Suwaidi, Senior Vice President Middle East Africa (MEAE). “The event is an ideal platform where we can meet with our partners in the infrastructure industry value chain to share thoughts on the latest trends moving the industry forward and learn about successes achieved and best practices from the leaders in the industry.”

At Big 5, Borouge demonstrated its grades of PP-R, PE100, PP-B and PE-RT polypropylene and polyethylene raw materials used in manufacturing domestic applications such as hot and cold water plumbing and drainage solutions. Being non-metallic, these corrosion resistant materials are used to make plastic pipes that are rapidly replacing metal ones in buildings throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East, providing long maintenance free operation at extreme temperatures.

"The plastic piping solutions we showcased are produced under the Borstar® proprietary technology that allows us to engineer our raw materials as per the highest quality standards, thus providing reliable and sustainable solutions," said Youssef Taha, Vice President Marketing Centre Infrastructure, Borouge. "The plastic pipes manufactured using Borouge’s resins are used for distribution of drinking water, providing safe, pure, odourless and leak-free fresh water."

Taha pointed out that Borouge’s polyethylene pressure pipe solutions - BorSafe™ HE3490-LS, HE3490-LS-H and ME3440 - enjoy an extensive track-record and have been synonymous with reliability, robustness and excellent processability. “We are fortifying our polyethylene pressure pipe solutions with colour grades recently developed for gas distribution pipelines. We are also introducing our polyethylene raised-temperature (PE-RT) Borstar® 3466-RT which can withstand higher temperatures making it ideal for underfloor heating and cooling, radiator connections, district heating/cooling and other industrial applications," he added.
