CONSISTA® Catalyst Systems

CONSISTA®  catalysts are the first 6th generation, non-phthalate based catalysts; designed to produce advanced-performance polypropylene with broad applicability that can be used to fabricate lighter, cleaner and clearer articles..

CONSISTA® C601 and C602 Catalysts with new CONSISTA donors:CONSISTA® D7600, D8700 and D9700deliver high reactor operability and on-stream time. CONSISTA Catalyst systems are tailored for the UNIPOL® PP Process.

 Process and Product Benefits

  • Non-phthalate based catalyst chemistry
  • Excellent reactor operability and protection
  • Excellent product performance in major application areas
  • Applicable to a broad range of commodity and specialty grades
  • Enables a reduction in resin manufacturing costs through less peroxide usage
  • Drop-in technology without capital investment with UNIPOL® Process Technology
  • Broader applicability to the entire product wheel than any other catalyst
  • Higher stiffness for homopolymer lightweighting
  • Market-leading impact/stiffness balance
  • Lower haze for clarified random copolymer
  • Broad molecular weight distribution yields improved extrusion processing for pipe, sheet and thermoforming applications
  • Improved taste-odor for food contact grades
  • Lower VOC faster cycle time high melt flow rate (MFR) grades for injection moulding

UNIPOL® Polypropylene Process Technology - SHAC® Catalyst ADT

SHAC® Catalyst Systems: Advanced Donor Technology Improves Process Operability and Product Performance

SHAC® Catalyst Systems, ADT Donors and the new CONSISTA® Donor Technology are complementary components designed specifically for the UNIPOL® Polypropylene Technology. They are also suitable for all other gas phase polypropylene technologies.

This platform technology offers polypropylene producers the ability to significantly improve reactor stability and process operability under adverse conditions and at the same time maintain or improve product performance properties.

A System To Meet Your Needs

The use of SHAC® Catalyst ADT allows for tailored product specific applications based on xylene solubles (XS), molecular weight distribution (MWD) and oligomers requirements.

The SHAC® Catalyst ADT includes two primary product lines. Both are used as external donors.

SHAC® Catalyst ADT 4000 Series

Delivers broad polymer molecular weight and are best applied in producing impact copolymers.

SHAC® Catalyst ADT 5000 Series

Produces narrow polymer molecular weight for homopolymers and random copolymers.
