Borlink™ Technology

Borlink™ is a wire and cable industry-wide platform crosslinking the technology, products and expertise to connect networks and grids as well as people and their access to energy.

What is Borlink™ Technology?

The establishment of Borlink™ represents another step change innovation. It underlines the Borealis and Borouge commitment to the industry as it provides an outstanding resource for meeting the challenges the industry will face in the future. By establishing Borlink, Borealis and Borouge have elevated their total network of support to a new level by helping to facilitate the linking of different grids and energy sources together both regionally and globally.

Borealis and Borouge are recognised throughout the wire and cable industry as trendsetters for innovation in technology and products. With more than 50 years of experience, they are the reliable partners of choice in offering high quality polyolefins for a wide variety of power transmission and distribution cables as well as electrical and fibre optic communication applications.

Why Borlink™?

As industry leaders, Borealis and Borouge have introduced significant technological advances, as well as established cutting-edge quality and purity standards. Key innovation advances of Borlink include a tailor-made high pressure (HP) process for the production of high purity low density polyethylene (LDPE) base polymers with superior electrical properties and the introduction of a closed or controlled loop (from monomer to final packaging) which avoids contamination and ensures homogenous and super clean, high quality compounds.

Applying these technologies enables Borealis and Borouge to deliver a wide range of material solutions such as their unique cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) for high productivity, as well as the first globally available solutions for high voltage direct current (HVDC) XLPE cable applications.

Benefiting from Borlink technology, cables in use for more than 30 years still perform to today's standards and prove the reliability of these solutions. Additionally, at the end of their useful life, these cables can be fully recycled in combination with standard PE for a fully sustainable multi-generation life cycle.
