Unformatted text preview: LLDPE (a superior balance of properties) Comparing with LDPE with approximately the same melt index and density, the LLDPE samples display higher melting point, higher tensile strenth, higher flexual modulus, better elongation and much better stress-crack and abrasion resistances. Pipe applications: LLDPE resins are true engineering plastics, subjected to harsh environmental conditions and high stress, replacing the pipe HDPE and LDPE blending resins and some PVC. Film, injection molding and wire and cable LLDPE resins provides higher performances....
