Description

Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) is a linear polymer (polyethylene), with significant numbers of
short branches. It is called LLDPE for its English acronym: Linear Low-Density PolyEthylene (LLDPE) or
PolyEthylene Linear Low-Density (PELLD).Linear low-density polyethylene differs structurally from conventional low-density polyethylene because of the absence of long chain branching. The linearity of LLDPE results from the different manufacturing processes of LLDPE and LDPE. In general, LLDPE is produced at lower temperatures and pressures by copolymerization of ethylene, butene, hexene, or octene. The copolymerization process produces an LLDPE polymer that has a narrower molecular weight distribution than conventional LDPE.

Usual uses
