LyondellBasell

Description

Lupolen 5021DX is a high density polyethylene resin used in a wide range of processing methods. Typical customer applications include small blow molding of engineering parts, toys, packaging for consumer goods and for surfactants. It exhibits good chemical resistance and good ESCR as well as good flowability and organoleptic properties. Lupolen 5021DX is delivered in pellet form, contains antioxidants and has a broad molecular weight distribution.                                                                                                                          

Lupolen 5021DX is not intended for use in medical and pharmaceutical applications.
