Iran's Jam Petrochemical has revealed it is planning to switch production at its two plants in Assaluyeh to high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe grade and linear low density PE (LLDPE) production in October.
Its 300,000 tonne/year HDPE plant, currently producing high molecular weight blow-molding grade, will be changed to natural HDPE pipe production, the company said.
"We are rather new in the pipe market. We plan to market this product to Turkey, the CIS countries and domestically," he added.
Jam's other 300,000 tonne/year HDPE/LLDPE swing plant, currently producing HDPE injection-molding grade, will be switched to LLDPE film production, the company noted.
The bimodal C4-LLDPE film is of a terpolymer type which Jam is trying to market locally into niche markets.
It is used in the film packaging sector for the production of heavy duty sacks.
