Linear Low-density Polyethylene (LLDPE)

Linear Low-density Polyethylene (LLDPE)

Polymer Type: Thermoplastic

Key Properties

  • Improved strength and tear resistance compared to LDPE
  • Good flexibility and clarity
  • Chemical resistance
  • Moisture resistance
  • Recyclable


  • Stretch film and shrink wrap for packaging
  • Pipes and tubing
  • Automotive parts
  • Toys and recreational equipment

Additional Information

Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) shares many characteristics with LDPE but offers enhanced strength and tear resistance. This makes it suitable for more demanding applications requiring puncture resistance and durability. LLDPE retains good flexibility and clarity, similar to LDPE, allowing for versatile forming and transparency. It also exhibits good chemical and moisture resistance, expanding its use in various environments.

LLDPE is recyclable, contributing to its environmental sustainability. However, like LDPE, it has lower heat resistance compared to some other polyethylene grades.
