AGILITY Performance LDPE

Organization: Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics
Year: 2016
Award Level: Bronze

AGILITY Performance Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) resins from Dow are a new generation of LDPEs designed to bring the best performance attributes of conventional autoclave and tubular LDPEs into one pellet. This family of LDPE resins enables customers to challenge the limits in optics, blown film extrusion throughput, and physical properties through enabling less LDPE usage in blends.

These resins utilize Dow’s new proprietary advanced LDPE manufacturing technology, which tailors molecular design to deliver improved optics, bubble stability, and higher melt strength. These desirable properties enhance the performance and process efficiency of a range of applications including agricultural films, lamination films, shrink films (including collation shrink), stretch films, food packaging, food storage bags, foams for protective packaging, and extrusion coating.

AGILITY Performance Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) by Dow Chemical Co. received the Special Recognition: Market Disruptor-Products, Bronze Award.
