Low Density Polyethylene Resin

Product Description
LD 259 is an LDPE extrusion coating grade especially designed for coating on non-woven substrates. Its high melt-index combined with low density gives this grade the right balance between adhesion onto non-wovens, flexibility after coating and acts as a barrier for fluids and gases. LD 259 can also be used as a general extrusion and co-extrusion coating grade that requires easy processability, good neck-in/draw down balance and excellent heat sealability.
