Tips and Test Methods.

A new TAPPI Test Method has been proposed: "Rheological Indicators to Predict the Extrusion Coating Performance of Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)" The scope of this method is as follows: In optimizing the extrusion coating process, it is of utmost importance to balance the elasticity of the polymer. This method describes how oscillatory measurements can be used to characterize low-density polyethylene (LDPE). The storage modulus and zero shear viscosity have been found to be useful parameters to predict the extrusion coating performance of LDPE.

TAPPI members who are interested in this method may join the Standard-Specific Interest Group (SSIG) to receive ballots when this method is ready for vote. If you would like to join the SSIG for this project, please notify Charles Bohanan at TAPPI ( or fax at +1 770 446-6947) before October 1, 2004.
