Definitions for "LLDPE"
linear low density polyethylene, a new type of low density polythene
Linear low density polyethylene. The polymerisation process from ethylene is under low pressure, but with a organo-metallic catalyst. This type of polyethylene has less side chains, which makes it less vulnarable to oxydation and attack of UV-light. The molecular weight is kept lower than for HDPE and also other monomers which makes side chains are introduced to lower the density. It has mainly the same purposes as LDPE.
A member of the polyolefin family of plastics. It is a strong and flexible plastic and usually used in film for packaging, bags and for industrial products such as pressure pipe.
