TIPOLEN FD 243-55 is a low density polyethylene grade containing slipping and antiblocking agents. It is suitable for bags, general purpose films, backing fiilms and flat films. The monolayer or coextruded films are produced in the thickness range of 40-80 nm for the packaging industries. The films made of TIPOLEN FD 243-55 have excellent mechanical and optical properties and molten stability and they process typically well. TIPOLEN FD 243-55 is licensed by the National Food and Nutrition Institute (OETI) and it has the internationally acknowledged FDA, BGA and EU licenses for food industrial applications.

MFI is measured at 190 C on a product flowing through a standard outlet of 2.095 mm under a load of 2.16 kg.
Manufacturing conditions of the film specimen: die dia: 50 mm; die gap: 0,5 mm; blowing ratio: 1:2; quantity of the extruded product: 5 kg/h; molten temperature: 150 C?
Mechanical properties are measured on a specimen prepared according to ISO 527-2 after the specimen is conditioned at room temperature.
