Key Drivers Influencing Growth of Homo Polybutene-1 Market

Growing Demand for Packaged Food Increasing the Need for Homo Polybutene-1?

Food packaging is one of the main application segments where demand for polybutene-1 is growing at a high pace. Packaged food supports a busy lifestyle and allows protection for ready-to-eat meals. It also allows resealing of any packaged food item once the desired amount of food has been consumed.

Additionally, polybutene-1 packaging allows easy to open property with little force and without the need for any cutting instrument, which has inclined the packaging industry to lean towards the utilization of PB-1. Furthermore, customers who use polybutene-1 report good results for the packaging of fresh pasta, sliced cheese and meat, pizza, tofu, ready-to-eat meals, yoghurt cups, sandwich packs, etc.

Demand for polybutene-1 has also shown huge growth in terms of vacuum food packaging. In vacuum packaging, use of polybutene-1 products has enabled consumers to develop a wide range of film structures that are typically used for the safe packaging of peanuts, coffee, vacuum rice, meat packaging, powder milk, and cheese.

Why Have PB-1 Piping Systems Been Popular Since Decades?

Homo Polybutene-1 pipeline systems have demonstrated their perfect survival in the pursuit of industrial and domestic applications, and have received widespread acceptance among engineers, architects, construction contractors, and homeowners. PB-1 piping system provides efficient and reliable operations, piping flexibility, network handling, and high energy efficiency.

All polyolefins’ compounds tend to dilate when exposed to chronic stress for a long time. But the unique morphology and crystallization behaviour of PB-1 gives it unparalleled properties for pressurized piping operations. In addition to its excellent mechanical and thermal performance, polybutene-1 offers a high level of chemical resistance and also provides excellent resistance to heat.
