LLDPE Injection Molding

LLDPE is a thermoplastic resin with excellent flexibility and impact resistance


LLDPE, linear low-density polyethylene, is a thermoplastic material that offers excellent environmental-stress-crack resistance (ESCR) and good processibility.

Key benefits

  • Flexibility, even at low temperatures
  • Impact resistance
  • Puncture resistance
