Braskem provides a new product option that is part of the Rigeo family portfolio: HD1954M, a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) that delivers a combination of high rigidity, good impact strength as well as to Environmental Stress Cracking (ESCR), rendering packaging improvement and productivity gains.


"This launch meets the demands of the chemical and agrochemical markets, which traditionally are very demanding in terms of quality. Properties such as rigidity, resistance to impact and Environmental Stress Cracking are key features that deliver enhanced product safety for this segment," introduced Leandro Fiorin, Application Engineering Leader at Braskem.


Braskem presents to the market a new, 100% recyclable grade in its Rigeo family.

The HD1954M grade expands the portfolio of the Braskem Rigeo family, which was launched in 2017 and has so far consisted of the 4950HSM and HD1053M grades, which are all recyclable.


While Rigeo 4950HSM grade has adequate fluidity for the production of small volume packaging, Rigeo HD1954M can be used for the production of packaging up to 20 liters. Rigeo HD1053M on the other hand is an option for packaging volumes of up to 60 liters.
