Branded the "workhorse" of hexene materials, TUFLIN™ Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Resins from The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) are used in numerous film applications including stretch, food packaging and industrial films. Films extruded from TUFLIN LLDPE Resins exhibit superb toughness, high tensile strength and elongation, excellent tear and puncture resistance, high stiffness, and are readily heat sealable. Many of the films can be readily treated and printed for conversion into a variety of packaging applications.
TUFLIN LLDPE Resins are low melt index resins with excellent toughness that can be slip, antiblock and antioxidant modified. TUFLIN LLDPE Resins are excellent for making high-quality packaging films, including stretch and cling wraps, as well as the manufacture of films in a wide range of gauges - from less than 1 mil (25 microns) to greater than 5 mils (125 microns).
TUFLIN LLDPE Resins can be employed as a blending resin to upgrade the film properties of other polyethylene resins that have much less toughness.
