According to media reports, Braskem, the largest thermoplastics resins producer in America, started up a new UTEC Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene plant in Texas following a two-year construction and commissioning process.

UTEC is a kind of polymer which is highly resistent to abrasion, impact and friction. It is also eight times lighter than steel and ten times more longlasting than HDPE.

Braskem already produces PP at the La Porte site and it had previously announced its plans to continue to purchase ethylene from the suppliers in Houston for the new PE plant.
