“Almost annually for the last sixteen years, starting from 2005, the ZapSibNeftekhim products enter the 100 best products of Russia becoming a laureate or diploma winner of the Competition. We are confident in the quality of our products; therefore, we have submitted the polyethylene brands new for our productions for the competition. The ZapSibNeftekhim started their production at the end of 2019 – the beginning of 2020. Nevertheless, today, both polymers have passed homologation by more than two hundred clients in Russia and abroad, and are supplied as inside the country so to China, Turkey, Europe and the Customs Union countries. Inclusion of the ZapSibNeftekhim’s products into the 100 Best Products of Russia with certainty confirms their highest quality, innovativeness, value and irreplaceability for the consumers,” the SIBUR Management Board member, ZapSibNeftekhim CEO, Igor Klimov, noted.
The ZapSibNeftekhim produces the HD 85612 IM polyethylene using an innovative Innovene S technology from 2019. It is exactly the technology, with which adoption of the promising polyethylene brands at the modern petrochemical production has started last year. This brand is developed specifically for production of injection molded polyethylene items: industrial crating such as containers and pallets, household goods such as cartridges, boxes, safety helmets, caps, covers and so on. Over 220 ths tons of polyethylene of this brand has been produced since the production line launch at the ZapSibNeftekhim, which confirms its relevance by the clients.
Production of another polyethylene brand represented in the competition (HD 03580 SB) launched at ZapSibNeftekhim in 2020. This polymer has firmly captured its niche in domestic and international markets. This is a specific bimodal brand produced for manufacturing of blown polyethylene items such as bottles for antiseptic agents and any other packing containers for liquid and gel disinfectants, the demand in which has sufficiently increased during the coronavirus pandemic. The products manufactured of this polymer are notable for its high resistance to cracking and aggressive media exposure.
There are two four-line plants at the ZapSibNeftekhim producing various polyethylene brands with overall capacity of 1.5 mln tons per year. Thanks to its high production rate and innovative equipment, the state-of-the-art petrochemical complex is able to produce over 60 brands of polyethylene, which are used for manufacturing products in industrial sector, housing and utilities infrastructure, medicine and pharmacology, as well as for household needs.
