Looking for microirrigation solutions?
FINGERPRINT™ Polyethylene Resins offer the robust characteristics and proven performance needed for high-quality microirrigation tubing and tape.
These widely respected materials deliver precise amounts of water and nutrients while staying tough against the forces of Mother Nature. Not only that, but PE-based tubing and tape can also help lower energy, labor, and maintenance costs.
Our microirrigation resins are called FINGERPRINT™ for a reason. Each tube or drip tape produced with FINGERPRINT™ Resins has a special tracer element, making it possible to verify the presence of Dow’s polyethylene resins for years after installation. We do this so we can continuously improve upon resin quality, consistency, and sustainability.
FINGERPRINT™ DFDA-7510 Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Resin is used to produce microirrigation tubing for orchards, vineyards and landscaping.
It combines excellent:
- Environmental stress crack resistance (ESCR)
- Weather resistance
- Burst strength
- Consistency and extrusion characteristics
- Flexibility for easy roll-out
FINGERPRINT™ DFDC-7525 Medium Density Polyethylene (MDPE) Resin is used to produce thin-wall microirrigation tape for a broad range of row crops.
It features exceptional:
- Drawdown characteristics
- High tensile strength
- Stress crack resistance
- Burst strength and puncture resistance
- Balance of extrudability and toughness
