Manufacturing capabilities

The company's plant in Shanghai has a capacity of 30,000 MT/year (66 million lbs) and can be considered as one of the most modern of its kind worldwide. Its layout ensures high productivity combined with strict safety and protection standards for employees.

Production equipment is of the latest American and European technology. It is capable of producing agricultural films up to 20 m wide and geomembranes up to 2.5 mm of thickness. It can process the latest generation of ultra-strong polyethylene (metallocenes) as well as traditional polymers such as LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE and EVA. Production lines are fully automated: production set-up, processing parameters, formulations, gravimetric feeding of materials and size changeovers are monitored, controlled and adjusted with a sophisticated computer system.

HiTeC's films and geomembranes are all produced with 3-layer co-extrusion technology. They consist of 3 inseparable layers, each made of different polymers and containing different additives. Every layer contributes to the quality of the film with its useful properties, thus achieving an optimum performance.
