Low Density Polyethylene
(Film Grade)


General Information

Low density polyethylene is produced by the tubular and the autoclave reactor processes. As a result the product range covers a wide variety of densities and melt flow rates. Further it includes a large number of grades with excellent optical properties which yield film with a high to very high clarity. Finally there is a wide variety of additives. For example, several grades contain the slip agent erucamide. Films produced from these materials have excellent surface properties and very low odor and taste levels, which is of advantage in e.g. food packaging.
