Typical Characteristics

LLDPE F19010 is a butene comonomer based Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), with optimum levels of antioxidant, antiblocking agent, slip additive and polymer processing aid. The grade is designed to make blown film for heavy duty applications and liquid packaging, where good toughness, impact strength and tear resistance are desired.
