Lupolen 1800U

LyondellBasell

Description

Lupolen 1800U is a low density polyethylene resin used in various processing methods such as injection molding and compounding. It exhibits very high flowability and a very good balance of softness and toughness, dimensional stability and good processing. Lupolen 1800U is delivered in pellet form and is not additivated. It is used in a wide range of injection molding applications such as thin-wall packaging (TWIM) and housewares. Lupolen 1800U is also used in the area of compounding for color and additive batches and as a viscosity modifier. Customers have reported that the high melt flow rate (MFR) of Lupolen 1800U enables very good dispersion and homogenization at high loads with pigments and additives.

Lupolen 1800U is not intended for use in medical and pharmaceutical applications.
