“Enabling our partners to enhance the optical and mechanical performance of their end products,
while minimizing their environmental impact, is at the heart of our objectives at OQ. The
development of our Luban HP1151K resin grade is one of the solutions that help us reach this
goal,” says Talal Al Awfi, Chief Commercial Officer, OQ.
OQ’s Luban HP1151K reduces haze in the thermoforming process and increases clarity and gloss.
These are ideal properties to stand out in the hyper-competitive food packaging market —
especially for products such as polypropylene (PP) containers, cups and trays.
Continuously expanding into new areas of the plastics industry, OQ is not only broadening its PP
solutions and entering into the polyethylene (PE) space, but can now offer more integrated
solutions to key industries including Oxo products, such as inks and plasticizers for the packaging
and agricultural industries, respectively. This is made possible because OXEA is one of OQ’s nine
core assets, and is one of the leading companies for Oxo chemicals.
In addition, OQ will be showcasing its wide range of BOPP films, typically used for food packaging
and confectionery goods and a variety of other films like Luban DFDA-7047 and Luban DFDC-
7080 water bottle wrapper (blow film) at Plastex. These innovative films offer many advantages
such as being free from stearates. Other applications include lamination film, agricultural film,
stretch wrap film, FFS packaging films and more.

Luban grades also provide superior strength and stability to fibers. These OQ grades are driving
innovation in sectors such as carpeting, apparel, geo and agro textiles, as well as medical and
hygiene applications.
“We are proud to be a strong innovation partner, who is making more possible for our customers
in Egypt and the region in a variety of sectors ranging from food, consumer goods, housewares,
electronics and industrial packaging,” says Gilles Rochas, GM Performance Chemicals.
OQ’s PP, PE and Oxo products are enabling the growth and efficiency of partners in a myriad of
industries such as packaging, industrial applications, construction, compounding, agriculture, and
healthcare.
