Major Accomplishments

Taking on challenges to become the world’s best with consistent research and development

Metallocene Polyethylene


Metallocene polyethylene was developed in 2005 with DL Chemical’s own catalyst design and processing technology. It is a product that advanced the technology level one step higher with the development of a catalyst manufacturing method that can be applied to both slurry and gas phase processes and numerous types of metallocene catalysts



Succeeded in developing a product with bimodal molecular weight distribution even in the gas phase process by polymerizing in two consecutive gas phase reactors. It is used for pipes, blow, and film because of its excellent processability and long-term properties.



A specialty product which has renewed DL Chemical’s record of being the first in Korea’s petrochemical industry: the first domestic company to develop a universal polyisobutene in 1993, the first domestic company to develop high reactive polyisobutene (HRPB) and the world’s first to develop a universal HRPB swing process in 2010, and the first domestic company to export technology to the American market in 2015. As a high quality, eco-friendly product, it is used in lubricant additives and fuel detergent additives to enhance customer value.

HecoSolv DB


DETB is a new material which was successfully commercialized using a catalyst reaction and separation process technology developed in-house using C4 distillate as the first company in the world to do this. It has the advantages of environmental improvement and processability due to less odor compared to existing products. Thus, it is used for numerous purposes such as cleaning mixtures for electronic materials, solvents for roads, plasticizers, hydraulic oil, herbicide and insecticide.

Synthetic Oil


DL Chemical was the first company in Korea to successfully develop synthetic lubricant by polymerizing ethylene and propylene using the catalyst technique. It contributes to increasing customer value by being used in gear oil and for improving the viscosity index.



Customers’ needs were satisfied by developing films with various functions such as packaging of cigarettes, along with opaque white and matte films.
