ELITE™ Enhanced Polyethylene (EPE) Resins offer a single material solution that goes beyond the traditional performance attributes of metallocene LLDPE (m-LLDPE). The ELITE family of polyolefins products, developed based on The Dow Chemical Company’s proprietary INSITE™ technology, offer a unique combination of properties without compromising fabrication processability for a wide range of film applications.
Part of the ELITE EPE Resins family is the newly developed ELITE 5538G resins, a medium density polyethylene (MDPE) material grade able to overcome the stiffness and toughness barrier that m-LLDPE resins have traditionally encountered.
ELITE 5538G MDPE resins are suitable for a number of specialty packaging applications such as lamitube, stand-up pouches, over-wrap films, milk pouches and lamination films where both stiffness and toughness are essential performance requirements.
Varied Application Advantages:
Testing has shown that ELITE 5538G resins offer much higher stiffness, dart impact strength and machine direction (MD) tear strength, while achieving optics similar to conventional m-LLDPE (density 0.937) material grades.
With higher stiffness combined with higher toughness, ELITE 5538G resins could be used as a stiffness/toughness layer for lamination films. ELITE 5538G resins are also highly recommended as a base resin in lamitube films and stand-up pouches to achieve the advantage of downgauging and cost saving, while maintaining or even improving the required performances.
Through the combination of excellent stiffness and processability, ELITE 5538G resins could be considered as a single-material replacement for the stiffness blends of HDPE and LLDPE, which potentially contributes to better economics for customers due to higher throughout on their lines and lower material usage.
ELITE 5538G MDPE resins exhibit advantages over easy processability, higher stiffness combined with higher toughness, good tear strength as well as good optics. These advantages make ELITE 5538G a good candidate for a number of specialty packaging applications such as lamitube, stand-up pouches, over-wrap films, milk pouches and lamination films where both stiffness and toughness are essential performance requirements.
