For customers who require more toughness, puncture resistance or good tear resistance, DOWLEX™ Polyethylene Resins from The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) offer these qualities and much more. They deliver higher performance and processability and have a wide variety of applications in blown and cast film, extrusion coatings, injection molding and rotomolding. In addition, they have become a material of choice for hot and cold water pipes (PE-RT), membranes, and other durable goods.
DOWLEX PE Resins are frequently used in film applications to wrap pallet loads that have sharp corners and irregular shapes.
