virgin recycled polyethylene LLDPE granules for film, coating,
PE (polyethylene, abbreviated PE) is a thermoplastic resin
polymerized ethylene obtained. In the industry, but also copolymers
of ethylene with minor amounts of α- olefins. Polyethylene
odorless, non-toxic, feel like wax, has excellent low temperature
properties (lowest temperature up to -100 ~ -70 ° C), good chemical
stability, resistance to most acid-base erosion (impatience with
oxidation the nature of the acid). Room temperature, not soluble in
common solvents, water absorption, excellent electrical insulation.
LLDPE is a substantially linear polymer with significant numbers of
short branches, commonly made by copolymerizationof ethylene with short-chain alpha-olefins (for example, 1-butene, 1-hexeneand 1-octene). The copolymerization process produces an LLDPE polymer that has
a narrower molecular weight distribution than conventional LDPE and
in combination with the linear structure, significantly differentrheologicalproperties. Linear low-density polyethylene differs structurally
from conventional low-density polyethylene (LDPE) because of the absence of long chain branching.
The popularity of linear low density polyethylene(LLDPE) is due to its higher tensile strength and superior impact
and puncture resistance than its low density polyethylene (LDPE) rival. This has allowed converters to make thinner films
without sacrificing strength, saving material and reducing costs.
LLDPE’s good toughness relative to other products has also opened
up new application areas. However, LLDPE is not as easy to process
as LDPE and it has poorer clarity. As a result, converters often
use blends with LDPE to improve these properties.

1. Film applications such as food and non-food packaging,
shrink/stretch film and non-packaging uses. (The trend in food
packaging films is towards high performance film structures that
are less permeable to increase shelf life and enhance flavours).
2. Other film applications such as ( using metallocene or single
site catalyst technology) multi-layer cast stretch film,
agricultural greenhouse film, saran wrap, bubble wrap, medium to
heavy duty bags, lamination packaging film and multilayer film
barriers used in drink cartons.
3. Extrusion coating applications where it helps protect the
contents of liquid containers, primarily for paper and paperboard
Injection moulding sector has outlets such as lawn and garden
products, kitchen accessories, luggage and furniture parts,
recreational products and toys.
4. Non-food packaging applications are requiring stronger films
such as consumer, industrial and agricultural uses.
5. Plastic bags and sheets (where it allows using lower thickness
than comparable LDPE), plastic wrap, stretch wrap, pouches, toys,
covers, lids, pipes, buckets and containers, covering of cables,
geomembranes, and mainly flexible tubing.
