Univation is the licensor and catalyst supplier for the UNIPOL™ PE Process – the world’s leading PE technology. We have been in the PE catalyst business for over 50 years. From Ziegler-Natta and chromium catalysts to today’s single site metallocenes, advanced unimodal and bimodal multi-component catalysts, Univation is the global leader in catalyst innovation, manufacture and supply.
PRODIGY™ Bimodal Catalysts are uniquely engineered, multi-component catalysts that represent our most advanced PE catalyst technology. These catalysts enable production of bimodal HDPE in a single UNIPOL™ PE Reactor, while other technologies require multiple reactors. Low-sag PE100 pipe, high ESCR blow molding and gel-free, high-molecular-weight HDPE films are now fully accessible from a single UNIPOL™ PE Reactor.
ACCLAIM™ Catalysts are our next-generation, advanced catalysts for unimodal HDPE resin production. ACCLAIM™ Catalyst resin’s broad molecular weight distribution provides the mix of strength and processability needed for demanding applications such as PE80 pipe, large part blow molding, geomembrane and HDPE film; while providing improved production rates and comonomer flexibility
XCAT™ Metallocene Catalysts are a well-established generation of gas-phase single site catalysts that provides exceptional product application breadth. These catalysts produce PE resins that enable thinner gauge films and higher extrusion rates than conventional resins for a full range of sustainable solutions, providing opportunities for higher resin value in place of traditional LLDPE and Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) resin applications.
UCAT™ J Catalyst is a state-of-the-art Ziegler-Natta catalyst for conventional LLDPE and narrow molecular weight unimodal HDPE applications. UCAT™ J Ziegler-Natta catalyst is the industry benchmark, characterized by high productivity, reliable performance and a wide operating window. UCAT™ J Catalyst is used extensively worldwide for large volume LLDPE film and molding applications.
UCAT™ B Catalyst is designed for the production of unimodal HDPE blow molding resin. UCAT™ B Catalyst is precisely optimized for Household and Industrial Chemical (HIC) container applications. UCAT™ B Catalyst resins enjoy broad processability suitable for a wide range of blow molding machine types and excellent organoleptics for lowest taste and odor profiles.
