Petrothene® GA818073

Generic Family: Polyethylene, Linear Low DensitySupplied by: LyondellBasell Industries
PETROTHENE GA818073 offers the high environmental stress crack resistance characteristics of linear low density polyethylene with the processing properties needed for blowmolding and extrusion applications. The broad molecular weight distribution of GA818073 combines good melt strength with a significantly reduced tendency to melt fracture, two drawbacks common to conventional fractional melt index LLDPE resins. Applications for this resin include beverage and drip irrigation tubing, squeeze tubes and bottles for pharmaceutical and personal care product packaging, drum liners, highway traffic channellizers and other large, blow molded parts.
