LLDPE (Low Density Polyethylene) is used today primarily for Food and Utility bags.
- A plastic used predominantly in film applications due to its toughness, flexibility and relative transparency.
- LDPE has a low melting point, making it popular for use in applications where heat sealing is necessary.
- Typically, LDPE is used to manufacture flexible films such as those used for plastic retail bags, garment dry cleaning, and grocery bags.
LLDPE is also used to manufacture some flexible lids and bottles, and it is widely used in wire and cable applications for its stable electrical properties and processing characteristics.
The resin has good clarity but weak film strength.
