Benefits and Applications
LLDPE is used to produce garbage/lawn-leaf bags, housewares, bottles, profiles, coffee can lids and dairy product packaging, as well as large (rotomolded) parts such as outdoor gym sets, riding toys and tanks. Petrothene Select is used in blown film applications such as high performance trash can liners, heavy duty bags, shipping sacks and industrial packaging.
Resins used to produce film are available with either hexene or butene co-monomers. Materials used to produce molding applications are available for both injection and rotational molding processes. Broad-molecular-weight LLDPE grades are utilized in blow molding, profile and tubing applications. Petrothene Select can contribute to films having very high dart impact as well as excellent melt strength during blown film fabrication.
