The webinar gave information about the properties of PB-1, a thermoplastic resin that has better performance in terms of efficiency, flexibility, durability, reliability, and sustainability. Also some examples and tips on how to design, install, maintain, and recycle PB-1 piping systems were given.


The webinar was presented by two experts:

  • Patrick van Beek, Marketing Manager PB-1 at LyondellBasell and chairman of PBPSA. Patrick explained how Polybutene (PB-1) changes the way piping systems are made, making it the best option in every aspect of the process.
  • Werner Rothhöft, Application Development & Technical Service Engineer at LyondellBasell. Werner answered all technical questions about PB-1, highlighting its amazing features compared to other piping materials such as metals, PEX, PE-RT and PP-R.
