LyondellBasell: High flow rate and processability from LDPE resin

LyondellBasell (Rotterdam / The Netherlands; www.lyondellbasell.com) has introduced an LDPE resin for use in a range of injection moulding and masterbatch applications. "Lupolen 1800U” offers a balance of mechanical properties and easy processability, toughness, softness and dimensional stability, the company says. It complements its existing LDPE range used in injection moulding and has been developed for applications such as flexible, thin-walled container lids.

The grade is claimed to provide better processing characteristics than LLDPE in packaging and thin-wall injection moulding applications including housewares and caps and closures and has the highest melt flow rate of the company's European LDPE grades.
