Enhanced Environmental Stress-crack Resistant HDPE for Floating Photovoltaic  (FPV) Systems   ​

Food-grade material for your FPV floats with excellent mechanical properties, high environmental stress crack resistance and ease of processing


Enhanced Durability

Floating Photovoltaic (FPV) systems are designed to float on water.They are subjected to constant movement, exposure to dampness and UV radiation. The Borealis Borstar® technology provides superior Environmental Stress-Crack Resistance (ESCR) HDPE, ensuring the system can withstand stressed conditions without showing signs of wear and tear. The increased durability leads to a longer lifespan for the system and reduces the need for frequent maintenance or replacement.


Reducing Carbon Footprint and Improving Production Throughput

Borouge’s injection moulding HDPE with superior stress-crack resistance is a breakthrough for the solar float design concept. It helps reduce carbon emissions by reducing the number of shipping containers needed to ship the FPV floats compared to traditional blow moulding processing method.

HDPE from Borstar® technology also exhibits good flow properties equivalent to standard monomodal higher melt flow rate (MFR) HDPE resin, thus offering great mechanical performance of a lower MFR but ease of processibility of a higher MFR.


Greener and More Sustainable Solar Float​

Borouge believes in reducing, reusing and recycling to strengthen our ambitions towards a circular economy. Our HDPE material is recyclable, contributing to reducing carbon emissions in the upstream manufacturing processes of solar photovoltaic systems. Moreover, Borouge goes a step further by providing innovative recyclate solutions that effectively lower the carbon footprint of your FPV system while still meeting the stringent specifications and requirements of the FPV floats. ​​
