Three new LLDPE film grades, based on a “leading-edge catalyst technology”, have been added to the Dowlex portfolio from Dow Chemical, Midland, Mich. They boast improved toughness, puncture/tear resistance, and hot tack strength.
The new grades are aimed at a range of demanding film applications: GM 8070G, for use in heavy-duty shipping sacks and collation shrink films; GM 8071G, for use in consumer liners; and GM 8480F, for blown and cast stretch films.
