Developments in Polyethylene


In this seminar we will hear about a number of developments in Polyethylene. Ged Beckton will discuss a number of challenging flexible packaging application in industrial and food packaging including easy-peel and reclosable packaging. Matching head tooling to the characteristics of the resin can enable the best performance from new generation dairy blow moulding resins, resulting in faster cycle times and improved bottle performance, Camtech Engineering will elaborate on the details, Qenos will present a recently study on the unexpected effects of commonly used pigments on the physical properties of rotationally moulded products. We will then switch gears and discuss Polyethylene sustainability. In 2015 we used 84Mt of plastics in consumer products and packaging. Would the elimination of plastics lead to a better environmental outcome?
