Low-gel mLLDPE for specialty films.
Special versions of two hexene-copolymer metallocene LLDPEs feature exceptionally low gel levels that are said to enable production of lamination and surface-protection films with improved sealing, tear resistance, and optical properties. New Exceed 1018LC and 1018LE from ExxonMobil Chemical in Houston are identical to the current Exceed 1018CA and 1018EB grades except for zero large-gel content and quantified low levels of small gels. ExxonMobil measures gel content using a new computerized camera system. The actual measured gel level is shown on the resin's Certificate of Analysis. Both grades have a 0.918 g/cc density and 1 MI.
