Eastman Chemical Company: MDPE coating resins

Suitable for bag-in-box and other applications requiring toughness. Offer high gloss and contain no additives or corrosive modifiers which is said to be advantageous in non-continuous extrusion-coating operations. Coatings as thin as 5 lb/ream can be applied at laminator speeds in excess of 800 fpm.
