Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE)





he density of this type of polyathylene is less than that of light polyethylene. This type of polymer shows better strength and tensile strength against breakage and perforation. In addition to Japan and Western Europe, North America, Asia, and the Pacific are the world's largest producers of polyethylene, respectively. Production of this polymer in 1998 amounted to 10.9 million tons, which increased by 6.2 percent in 2003 to 14.8 million tons and is expected to reach 19.5 million tons per year in 2008. But what seems interesting is that linear polyethylene has attracted attention for several years due to its unique properties and undergoes a growing process in its production.
