Low Density Polyethylene

LyondellBasell’s low density polyethylene (LDPE) resins are thermoplastics made from the polymerization of ethylene in autoclave or tubular reactors at very high pressures. Unlike low-pressure polymerization technologies, high-pressure polymerization allows the co-polymerization of ethylene with polar comonomers, such as vinyl acetate or butyl acrylate. The polymer is characterized by a highly-branched polymer structure.

The ability to manufacture products on high-pressure autoclave and tubular reactors creates a very broad product portfolio for versatile film applications. Grades for use in extrusion coating, injection molding, blow molding, sheet and profile extrusion as well as other applications are also available.
