PE is the most widely used polyolefin in the world by volume. Mynolex Resindo produces all three types of PE, namely High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) and Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), in more than 70 grades in total.
Mynolex Resindo's high density polyethylene (HDPE) grades numerous end-use requirements that at one time were only achievable by using metal, glass and fiber. HDPE is also used to produce safety equipment, home insulation, household/industrial chemicals and motor oil, lawn care chemicals, pressure pipe and sheet applications.
» HDPE is used in numerous customer applications:
» Grocery merchandise and trash bags
» Containers for frozen food and dairy products
» Caps and closures
» Liners for cereal, crackers and other food packaging
» Plastic fuel tanks
» Drink cups, dairy crates and bread trays
» Toys and pails for items from paint to fresh produce

Mynolex Resindo’s low density polyethylene (LDPE) resins are thermoplastics made from the polymerization of ethylene in autoclave or tubular reactors at very high ressures.
The ability to manufacture products on high-pressure autoclave and tubular reactors creates a very broad product portfolio for versatile film applications. Grades for use in xtrusion Coating, Injection Molding, Blow Molding, Sheet and Extrusion as well as other applications are also available.
» LDPE is used in a wide range of customer applications, including:
» Packaging film and bags for foodstuff and sanitary articles
» Agricultural film
» Surface protection film and lamination film
» Shrink and stretch hood film
» Bottles and tubes
» Healthcare applications
» Extrusion coating
» Lids, caps and closures
» Wire & cable

Mynolex Resindo produces linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) at two manufacturing locations; these products are used in film, molding and broad molecular weight LDPE applications. Materials used to produce molding applications are available for both injection and rotational molding processes. Broad-molecular-weight LLDPE grades are utilized in blow molding, profile and tubing applications.
» LLDPE is used to produce applications such as:
» Garbage/lawn-leaf bags
» Dairy product packaging
» Outdoor gym sets
» Riding toys
