DOW™ Low Density Polyethylene Resins are more than just general purpose polyethylene resins. They are re-emerging as a valuable product family, combining superior clarity with stiffness and density favored by converters for downgauging. Ease of processing beyond most LLDPE resins, combined with improved product performance, continues to give cost competitive solutions to converters in a wide variety of film applications. These range from complex food packaging structures to shopping bags and coated paper boards.
Other typical applications include liners, overwraps, consumer bags, heavy duty sacks, clarity shrink and collation films, lamination films, agricultural films, extrusion coatings, caps and closures, and a variety of durable products such as toys.
In packaging applications, DOW LDPE Resins offer excellent aesthetics, printability, strength, tear resistance and elasticity. They can be processed on today's high-speed lines for use as film, coatings or laminations, and blend easily with LLDPE resins for customized performance. In cost-sensitive health and hygiene markets, LDPE resins can improve processing efficiencies, and the Dow portfolio also includes products for pipes and other goods.
