New PP Recipe for Harsh Environments
Ensures Long Service Life
Norner AS, Stathelle, Norway, has succeeded in developing a new PP material recipe to ensure a long service life of PP in aggressive environments. This new proprietary technology is a result of deep polymer expertise and a focused development project.
The innovation has been created through development and testing of different additive recipes for PP in liquids and solvents with the target of reaching service life longer than 20 years at elevated temperature. Examples are transportation of hot water, warm hydrocarbons or alkaline liquids in piping system with PP liners for chemicals. The results are very good and even at 70°C, more than 25 years have been demonstrated by accelerated testing. The proprietary solution developed for PP is currently in implementation phase in a harsh industrial environment at a chemical plant.
Norner is an independent plastics institute with more than 35 years of industrial experience and holds global expertise within additivation of polymers including advanced laboratories for performance testing and additive analysis.
