Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) is produced in a low pressure reactor and incorporates either a butene, hexene or octene comonomer. By definition, LLDPE has a density range of 0.915 to 0.940 g/cm3. LLDPE is characterized by excellent puncture and tear resistance, especially compared to HDPE or LDPE as well as a good balance between stiffness and toughness. LLDPE is most commonly processed by injection molding and film extrusion. Typical applications for LLDPE include caps, closures and lids, pails, various types of films, and wire and cable compounds.
