The Most Versatile, Non-Phthalate Catalysts for all Your Polypropylene Needs

A single catalyst to deliver product and operational performance.

The foundation of CONSISTA® catalysts is non-phthalate chemistry. In developing non-phthalate, our scientists sought to create a catalyst that also provides high performance across a wide range of PP grades. With CONSISTA® catalysts, the promise has been delivered.

CONSISTA® provides differentiated product performance across the broadest range of product applications to enable improved profit. CONSISTA® also offers catalytic routes with products with better performance than peroxide or mechanical routes. Our customers have used CONSISTA® across a variety of applications including:

  • Food packaging
  • Industrial packaging
  • Automotive
  • Health and hygiene
  • Building and construction
  • Piping
  • Appliances
  • Consumer applications

A Versatile and Efficient Catalyst

Increasing sustainability concerns provides opportunities for more durable applications to reduce disposable products. Meanwhile, in the automotive industry, lighter weight and down gauging require stiffer polypropylene products. CONSISTA® catalysts help you meet all these needs.

You can design products with CONSISTA® catalysts that show low blooming, high MFR with high stiffness, high MFR with low-temperature toughness, higher clarity and lower haze, lower heat seal initiation temperature, low VOCs, lower taste and odor. 

Streamlining Your Operations with CONSISTA® Catalysts

Downtime caused by poor catalyst transitions and operability issues, like sheeting caused by agglomeration, can wreak havoc on your plant’s productivity. Compared to conventional Ziegler-Natta catalysts, the high-performance CONSISTA® catalyst systems produce powder-stage resins that are more uniform in shape. The result is higher powder flow rates and higher powder settled bulk density that enables your plant to achieve the higher production rates. The controlled morphology catalysts significantly reduce fines levels, further improving operability.
