Blown film extrusion equipment is used in hundreds of industries around the world. By melting thermoplastic resins and inflating them, a thin-walled tube is created. The tubular film can then be slit to create a flat film or sealed at an end to create bags/sacks. Film can be colored, printed on, and otherwise finished into the perfect final product.
Blown Film Materials and Application
The most common thermoplastic resins used in blown film processes are polyethylenes like HDPE and LDPE as well as polypropenes (PP). Depending on the resin used, the resulting strength can be ideal for anything from basic consumer goods to higher-performance industrial applications.
These resins are blown to create monolayer or multilayer/coextrusions for a variety of end uses and applications:
- Laminating Film
- Shrink Wrap
- Agricultural Covering Film
- Bags or Film for Textiles & Clothing
- Plastic Shopping Bags
