Abstract

The range of polyethylenes, available to film producers, has been greatly increased with the large scale production of linear low density (LLDPE) polymers and the use of high density polyethylene (HDPE) in tubular film extrusion. These polymers are being used alone and in blends with high pressure low density polyethylenes (LDPE) in many film applications.
