LLDPE Production Cost Analysis 2020
Linear low-density polyethylene, better known as LLDPE, is a linear polymer polyethylene. It has a notable number of short branches that are created by the copolymerization of ethylene with longer-chain olefins.
Linear low-density polyethylene differs in structures from conventional low-density polyethylene or LDPE because of the absence of long-chain branching. The linearity of LLDPE results from the different production processes of LLDPE and LDPE. LLDPE is manufactured at lower temperatures and lower pressures by the copolymerization of ethylene with higher alpha-olefins such as butene, hexene, or octene. The copolymerization process manufactures an LLDPE polymer with a narrower molecular weight than a traditional LDPE. It is done while combining it with the linear structure and different rheological properties
LLDPE comes with higher tensile strength as well as with higher impact and puncture resistance as compared to LDPE. It is very flexible as it can elongate under stress. It is used to create thinner films with environmental stress cracking resistance. It also has excellent resistance to chemicals. It has superior electrical properties as well.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of LLDPE production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
