​​​​​​​​​​​​​Polyolefin Catalysts

For more than 50 years, Grace has been a leading producer of polyolefin cata­lysts and additive systems. Our heritage is in polyethylene catalysts, but through a series of acquisitions, partnerships and new investments, we have rapidly expanded in the polypropylene catalyst sector. In December 2013, Grace acquired UNIPOL® PP, a proprietary gas phase polypropylene process technology for the production of a broad range of polypropylene products. Our UNIPOL® PP licensing and catalyst business also includes UNIPOL UNIPPAC™ Advanced Process Control software.

In July 2016, Grace acquired the BASF Polyolefin catalyst business, which includes LYNX® polypropylene (PP) catalysts and polyethylene (PE) catalysts. LYNX® PP and PE catalysts allow producers to realize the productivity advantages of greater plant throughput and polymer differentiation across the entire range of polyolefin processes.

Today Grace is the #1 polyolefin catalyst supplier and #1 polypropylene catalyst supplier globally. Our customers include the 10 largest polyolefin producers in the world.  Grace's broad portfolio of industry-leading polypropylene and polyethylene catalysts includes:

  • MAGNAPORE®, the industry’s recognized leader in chromium-based polyethylene catalysts with 40 years of experience in liquid loop processes;
  • LYNX® Ziegler Natta catalysts systems for the production of high-density PE resins, such as bimodal film and pipe, as well as commercial use for the production of PP in all major process technologies including slurry, bulk loop, stirred gas, fluid gas, and stirred bulk;
  • POLYTRAK® Ziegler Natta polypropylene catalysts, exhibiting high activity with excellent operability and broad product capability;
  • HYAMPP™ 6th generation, non-phthalate polypropylene catalysts with industry-leading activity and expanded product capability, delivering resins that exhibit better clarity, stiffness, and impact strength;
  • SHAC® Ziegler Natta polypropylene catalysts, optimized for use in UNIPOL® PP technology with excellent reliability and broad product capability; and
  • CONSISTA® 6th generation, non-phthalate polypropylene catalysts optimized for use in UNIPOL® PP technology with industry-leading activity and expanded product capability, delivering resins that exhibit better clarity, stiffness, and impact strength.
