Process

Used in both the Single Loop (SL) and Advanced Dual Loop (ADL) designs, the MarTECH™ loop slurry process represents one of the most widely accepted polyethylene production technologies in the industry.


The Unique MarTECH™ Loop Slurry Reactor Process

The MarTECH™ loop slurry process was formally introduced in 1961 and continues to be the premiere loop slurry technology with ongoing research and development. Today, polyethylene is more popular than ever, and the Chevron Phillips Chemical MarTECH™ loop slurry process and world-renowned product quality are the standard by which all other technologies are judged.

Exclusive Licensor of Advanced Dual Loop Technology

Chevron Phillips Chemical is the exclusive licensor of the Advanced Dual Loop (ADL) technology. This state-of-the-art series reactor technology is a collaboration between Chevron Phillips Chemical Company and Total Petrochemicals. The ADL technology is capable of producing up to 500 kMTA and incorporates the key advancements from modern loop slurry design. The MarTECH™ ADL process is capable of producing the unique bimodal dual loop products such as PE 100 pipe grades, Extreme Resistance to Crack (XRC) initiation pipe grades, bimodal films and enhanced bimodal blow molding resins, as well as the full product range of MarTECH™ technology SL products.
