Tech Bulletins

Blending Tie Concentrates
Blending Tie Concentrates with LLDPE Resins

High barrier resins such as ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) and nylon require an intermediate adhesive or tie layer to bond to polyolefin layers and maintain package integrity.

Die Lip Building
Die Lip Building: Causes and Remedies

Die lip buildup (DLBU) or die drool is the gradual accumulation of material on the die lips or at the exit of extrusion dies. DLBU can be a chronic problem in high-output cast film or extrusion coating operations and is generally more likely to occur when extruding polymer blends that are highly filled or pigmented.

Preventing Gas Fading
Preventing Gas Fading in Polyethylene

Gas fading is a yellow or pink discoloration that happens when atmospheric pollutants like nitrogen oxide gases react with phenolic-type antioxidants. It’s a common issue with polyethylene films.
