What is Alkatuff?
Alkatuff is a unique Australian made brand of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). It has been designed by Qenos specifically for plastic water tanks.
As the name suggests, polyethylene (PE) is a plastic made by joining many molecules of ethylene gas together into long polymer chains. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) also uses a co-monomer to impart certain properties to the resin. Many polyethylene plants around the world use butene (C4 molecule) as the co-monomer. Qenos uses a superior hexene co-monomer (C6 molecule) to give improved performance across all resin applications but particularly tanks.
