Hyperzone PE Technology

The Next Evolution in Polyethylene Technology for the Plastics Industry

LyondellBasell continues its tradition of innovation with the introduction of a new polyolefin process, Hyperzone PE technology, which produces high density polyethylene (HDPE) resin with exceptional characteristics. This technology utilizes three distinct reaction zones in two reactors, which enables the production of tailored polymer structures to meet customers’ demanding processing and product requirements.

Hyperzone PE technology produces HDPE that enables our customers to obtain an optimal balance between ease of processing and high performance end-product physical properties.
