Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) differs structurally from conventional low-density polyethylene (LDPE) because of the absence of long chain branching. LLDPE has higher tensile strength and higher impact and puncture resistance than LDPE. It is very flexible and elongates under stress. It can be used to make thin films, with better environmental stress cracking resistance. LLDPE has a high resistance to chemicals and good electrical properties. It is, however, more difficult to process than LDPE.
FM Plastics has both unaddivated base material and more advanced LLDPE composites. Under grades we list standard materials we have continously available. Additionally, we produce custom made compounds and premixes that meet specific customer demands starting at 99 ton.
