These materials are used in a wide selection of applications, including:
- Stretch hoods
- Collation shrinkwrap
- Lamination film
- Consumer packaging
LDPE is made in Cologne, Germany and Bamble, Norway using autoclave technology. These materials (particularly the low melt index grades) show better toughness, higher sealing strength and range, and better holing resistance in shrink film than similar LDPE grades from tubular plants.
The EBA copolymers made in Bamble are used in several technically demanding end applications, and are particularly suitable for stretch hoods, offering higher elasticity than other copolymers.
