Safripol focuses on producing high-quality polymers for use in a variety of different sectors, including the infrastructure, telecommunications, agriculture, packaging, manufacturing, and medical sectors.

Our polymers are used in a broad range of applications, including for piping, multipurpose containers, fibres, films, non-woven fabrics, packaging, and bottling. Safripol is the only local producer of polyethylene terephthalate (‘PET’) and high-density polyethylene (‘HDPE’) and one of two producers of polypropylene (‘PP’) in South Africa.

Our vision is to create plastics that shape our world in a responsible way. Plastic is a wonderful product that is superior to many alternative products both in its application and in its relation to the impact on the environment. We believe plastic waste does not belong in the environment and we actively work to reduce the impact of plastic in the environment and promote the responsible use of plastic through the reduction, reuse and recycling of plastic.

What differentiates us

Products & services

PET

Innovation & value-add

Constant innovation is fundamental to our business model, as we believe that innovation fosters circularity. We work with converters, retailers and brand owners to develop solutions that not only improve efficiency and profitability, but also reduce environmental impact, for example, more energy-efficient grades such as our Aspire® T84 non-fast reheat resin.

Our focus on producing higher-specification, higher-margin polymers includes developing and optimising grades for specific applications. During the year, we developed an optimised grade of HDPE to supply the water tank market. We have also made progress in increasing the percentage of higher-grade PP (copolymer) in our sales mix. This enables us to compete effectively against higher-quality PP imports.

Our ‘Let’s plastic responsibly’ campaign gives us an important vehicle to articulate the benefits of plastic, as well as to inform and educate the public about how to use plastic responsibly, which includes recycling.
