NOVA Chemicals NOVAPOL® PF-0218-F LLDPE Film Resin
Categories: Polymer; Film; Thermoplastic; Polyethylene (PE); Linear Low Density (LLDPE); Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), Film Grade

Material Notes:

Butene Copolymer


  • Toughness and strength
  • Ease of extrusion


  • Processing Antioxidant


  • Stretch wrap
  • Blend resin
  • Industrial packaging

Film properties are typical of blown film extruded on a 2.5" extruder with 4" die and 100-mil die gap at a blow up ratio of 2.5:1, but are dependent upon operating conditions.

United States: NOVAPOL PF-0218 Series resin complies with the specifications contained in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation 21 CFR 177.1520 for olefin polymers, para. (c) 3.2a, and may thus be used in the United States as an article or component of an article intended for use in contact with food, without temperature or food-type restrictions, subject to technical suitability.

NOVA Chemicals polyethylene resins are biologically and chemically inert.
