Higher-Performance Resins for Rotomolding

Petrothene and Microthene resins from LyondellBasell produce significantly faster curing rates, smoother internal surface finish, and improved color. Faster curing rates minimize the time necessary to eliminate bubbles and therefore reduce oven cycle time. Thus, manufacturers spend less time running ovens and more time building parts. A smoother inner surface improves overall product aesthetics and makes it easier to keep the product clean. Minimizing oven time also enhances color. The new rotomolding products do not require any process changes on existing rotomolding equipment.
