Description


Alathon L5906 is a high molecular weight high density polyethylene homopolymer with a broad bimodal molecular weight distribution. This resin exhibits excellent stiffness, very high tensile strength, and low gels. L5906 is selected by customers for use in draw tapes and paper replacement applications as well as other mono-and multi-layer films requiring both stiffness and toughness.
