Solid ownership and global reach

We are a bankable company and have proven our reliability as a partner for the energy sector worldwide.

Borealis is a leader in the global polyolefin industry, backed by a strong and strategic ownership foundation shared with our joint venture Borouge.

We have a strong track record of constant growth that enables us to advance innovative ideas all over the world in various industries, including automotive, piping, healthcare, packaging, and wire and cable.

Our experience partnering with the energy industry includes 45 years of innovating demanding cable applications for which reliability and performance are a must. Today, we continue to drive our international expansion, establishing local presences to keep pace with the growth of the global solar market.

Throughout the value chain we strive for effective cooperation with our business partners to ensure our products meet their expectations. And by actively collaborating with international standardisation bodies, we take responsibility for securing the long-term performance of solar modules and protecting the environment.

New Polyolefin based encapsulant from Borealis

Borealis has introduced new polyolefin based encapsulant film grades (Quentys™ BPO) for solar photovoltaic modules. The new encapsulant is thermoplastic in nature and is free of organic peroxide. The lamination cycle time with this encapsulant can be reduced significantly compared to conventional EVA and other polyolefin based encapsulants.

Making solar energy


more affordable

Our encapsulants increase the reliability, performance and cost efficiency of solar power modules.

Our encapsulants increase the reliability, performance and cost efficiency of solar power modules.

Third-party comparative testing* confirms that Borealis encapsulants extend the lifetime of solar modules and increase their power output over time because they offer industry-leading resistance against:

  • Moisture induced corrosion
  • UV induced degradation
  • Electrochemical failures
