LyondellBasell (LYB), one of the world's largest plastics, chemical and refining companies, is bringing to market the new Hostalen GF 7750 M3, a high density polyethylene (HDPE) resin. The new Hostalen grade has been enhanced to provide improved durability, processing capability and toughness balance that allows for the production of enhanced, tougher monofilaments for spinning high performing fabrics, especially anti-hail nets.

In these applications, Hostalen GF 7750 M3 allows manufacturers to produce outstanding filaments to meet the challenging requirements for strong agricultural nets that will help protect crops, vegetables and fruits against insects and severe weather conditions.

"The enhanced nets made using Hostalen GF 7750 M3 provide better resistance against the impact from hail storms and heavy loads of ice particles, which can help farmers better protect their harvests,” said Andreas Goeldel, Marketing Manager Textile and Injection Molding for Polyethylene Europe of LyondellBasell. “We are making use of the capabilities of the Hostalen ACP process to develop a number of benchmark grades for different end-use markets, including the agricultural sector.”

LyondellBasell customers recognize Hostalen as the latest evolution of HDPE resins serving the agricultural market.
