Product Description
HG385MO is a polypropylene homopolymer intended for injection moulding. This grade combines unique Borstar reactor design with Borealis Nucleation Technology (BNT) to produce highly-crystalline polypropylene. This product is characterized by excellent flow properties combined with a narrow molecular weight distribution well suited for low distortion products. This grade contains anti-static and slip additives, which result in short cycle time, good demoulding and low dust attraction.

Products moulded from this grade exhibit excellent dimension consistency combined with high stiffness.
