LDPE - Low Density Polyethylene
The LDPE grade range from INEOS Olefins & Polymers varies from standard homopolymers to EBA (Ethylene Butyl Acrylate) and EMAA (Ethylene-MethAcrylic-Acid) copolymers and ionomers. MFR range from 0,3 to 22 g/10min. These materials are used in a wide selection of applications, including:
o Stretch hoods
o Collation shrinkwrap
o Lamination film
o Consumer packaging
o Injection molding
LDPE is made in Cologne, Germany and Bamble, Norway using autoclave technology. These materials (particularly the low melt index grades) show better toughness, higher sealing and tensile strength in shrink film than similar LDPE grades from tubular plants.
