The name polyethylene comes from the ingredient and not the resulting chemical compound, which contains no double bonds. Polyethylene is majorly used for the manufacturing of carry bags, shopping bags & pouches, blown films, Food packaging materials, Industrial packaging etc.
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
High Density, (0.95-0.965 g/cm3) Polyethylene, has higher temperature resistance, stiffness, and superior water vapor barrier properties when compared to LLDPE. HDPE has a low degree of branching, hence stronger intermolecular forces and tensile strength.
There are four major end-uses of HDPE. Molding applications (injection and blow) account for almost 50% of world wide demand, while film and sheet applications represent 25%.
HDPE is highly preferred as a sheathing material where it provides high resistance to water penetration. It is very hard, has low coefficient of friction, and is abrasion resistant. Hence, it is used in products and packaging such as milk jugs, detergent bottles, margarine tubs, garbage containers and water pipes.
High Blown Film Grade
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) , Blow Moulding
Blow molding is a specific manufacturing process by which hollow plastic parts are formed and can be joined together. It is also used for forming glass bottles or other hollow shapes.
In general, there are three main types of blow molding: extrusion blow molding, injection blow molding, and injection stretch blow molding.
HDPE Large Blow Moulding
Typical applications include: • Jerrycans • Open top drums • 220L L-ring drums (55 gallon drums)
Medium Blow Moulding (MBM)
MBM HDPE is recommended for following applications: ¸ Large Containers (up to 100L) for transport & storage of Chemicals, Detergent, Lube Oil etc
Marlex HXM 50100P
Small Blow Moulding (General Purpose Blow Moulding)
GPBM is recommended for following applications: ¸ Bottles & containers up to 5 L ¸ Packaging of Pesticides & Surfactants ¸ Bottles for Shampoo and Cosmetics
HDPE filmis recommended for following applications: Tissue-like films ¸ Garment/Grocery/merchandise bags ¸ Disposal waste bags ¸ Shopping/Counter bags
HDPE injection Moulding :
Typical application includes : For toys and housewares • Good low temperature impact strength, gloss and excellent toughness • Complies with U.S. FDA 21 CFR 177.1520 (c) 3.2a. Consult the regulations for complete details.It has a narrow molecular weight distribution copolymer designed to offer low temperature impact strength and loss with excellent toughness. This resin has good processability over a wide range of molding conditions.
Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)
This product has been designed with an optimum balance of melt strength and drawability to give excellent performance in cast film, foam, blown film and bubble film extrusion. When properly fabricated, the product displays: excellent processability low neck-down (cast film) very good toughness and impact properties and good tear strength. In foam extrusion, This product gives an ideal balance between cell growth and stabilization to allow the production of very low density products without voids. Main Characteristics: - Cast film - Foam - Bubble film - General purpose blown film. Slip Additive: None Antiblock Additive: None
LDPE 2MFI Slip
LDPE General Purpose (LDPE 4MFI slip)
These are blown film grades and can be extruded with considerable ease. LDPE GP has been blended with necessary additives during manufacture to obtain good surface slipand easy open-ability betweentwo layers of the film
LDPE Heavy Duty
A low density polyethylene resin that can be extruded using conventional blown film equipment that exhibits balance of processability and mechanical properties.
Heavy duty shipping sacks
Collation shrink films
Excellent bubble stability
