Air Gap Dynamics: Effect on Molecular Properties and Heat Seal

Application: Because the molecular structure of a polyethylene coating changes during extrusion, an extrusion coating operation should expect variations in final performance.

The Case Against Oxidation as a Primary Factor for Bonding Acid Copolymers to Foil

Application: Acid copolymers will generally adhere more strongly to foil than low density polyethylene even when processing the acid copolymer at lower temperatures. This reduces the potential for taste, odor, processing, and other problems associated with high temperature processing.
