With virtually unlimited design freedom, excellent weight-savings potential, outstanding corrosion resistance and cost-effective manufacturing benefits, Lupolen resins have become the industry standard for the production of plastic fuel tanks (PFT). Lupolen resins are used by customers in extrusion blow molding, twin sheet thermoforming, and rotomolding to produce PFTs. Customers report that the unique balance of properties and performance attributes the material offers – optimal melt index, excellent stress cracking resistance, and superior impact strength – have been critical to their success.
LyondellBasell’s technical expertise and computer simulation tools provide essential support to manufacturers and OEMs in the design phase. Customers also select our specialty grades used in PFTs for injection molding, black masterbatches and electro-conductive applications.
The company focuses on the development of new PFT resins that comply with emerging sustainable fuels. A new-generation family of resins marketed under the trade name Lupolen + offers outstanding UV stabilization; compared to standard grades, the resins also provide improved fluorination performance and enhanced chemical resistance to biodiesel and gasoline-based peroxides.
